Prince William, Duchess Kate and Prince Harry are to attend a private service to re-dedicate Princess Diana’s grave this Saturday, it’s been announced. The special ceremony – which would have been Princess Diana’s 56th birthday – comes two months before the 20th anniversary of her death.
Diana is buried in the grounds of Althorp House in Northamptonshire, on an island in an ornamental lake known as The Oval within Althorp Park’s Pleasure Garden. The service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Royal brothers William and Harry have commissioned a statue of their mother to mark her death which shook the world.
The figure of Diana will stand in the public gardens of her former home Kensington Palace in London. It is understood that William and Kate will be joined by their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte at Saturday’s service and it is thought likely Diana’s brother Earl Spencer will lead his family.
