In 2017, Prince Harry and Prince William gathered at the tomb of Lady Diana in Northamptonshire. That year, the Princess of Wales would have celebrated her 56th birthday.

In 2017, Prince Harry and Prince William met for a solemn ceremony. The two brothers gathered at the grave of their late mother, Lady Diana. A ceremony organized in the greatest discretion, which had brought together the relatives of the Princess of Wales. The ceremony had taken place on the Althorp Estate in Northamptonshire, and on that day, Lady Diana would have turned 56 years old.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were present at this tribute to their grandmother whom they will never have known. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, orchestrated the ceremony.

Lady Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997, 23 years ago, is buried at Althorp, which belongs to the Spencer Clan. Her mausoleum is located on an island on the Round Oval Lake in Althorp Castle Park. If the place where her body is buried is inaccessible, visitors can gather in front of her memorial.

A tribute to the White Garden

At the time, the princes had asked for a statue of Lady Diana to be made to mark the 20th anniversary of her death in 2017. The sculpture was stored in the gardens of Kensington Palace in London.

On the eve of the twentieth anniversary of her death, the two brothers visited the White Garden in the gardens of Kensington Palace in London. This ephemeral garden, specially created in homage to the Princess, opened in the spring of 2017.

There, they discovered their mother’s favorite flowers as well as fragrant roses planted especially in her memory.
