Princess Diana tragically passed away 20 years ago. She left behind her young sons, Princes William and Harry, and the entire world grieved for her loss.
Given the nickname the “people’s princess,” Princess Diana was loved by the people of her country. Her passing was heartbreaking for everyone, but most of all for Prince William and Prince Harry.
The Princes have stayed in the public eye since the season of their mom’s demise, which probably been hard for two young boys. In spite of a few years of turmoil and misery during the past 20 years, they appear to have discovered their direction.
The Duke of Cambridge and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, now have two, charming youthful youngsters that are brimming with vitality. Harry has spent time in the British Armed Forces, but now devotes much of his time to charity work and official royal business.
To honor their mother, Prince William and Prince Harry planned a special rededication ceremony at her gravesite. The grandchildren the whom the Princess never met arrived with their parents for the tear-jerking moment. July 1 would have been Princess Diana’s 56th birthday. Diana’s siblings was also present in the ceremony.
The service was conducted on the island of the Oval Lake at Althorp House in England, where Princess Diana’s family home is located and is also her final resting place.
Prince William and Prince Harry have also commissioned a statue to be built to commemorate their mother. It will open in August, around the time of the anniversary of her passing.
The Princes recognize how important their mother was to the people of their country. “When she died there was such an outpouring of emotion and love, which was quite shocking. It was beautiful at the same time, and it was amazing, now looking back at it, that our mother had such a huge effect on so many people,” said Harry.
