20 Years After Princess Diana’s Death, Cameras Catch Princes Visiting Mom’s Memorial Garden

Jess grew up in Oklahoma before moving to New York to become a writer. She has a cat named Agnes.

On August 31, 1997, Princess Diana tragically passed away.

While the whole world mourned her loss, no one felt the sadness harder than her sons, Princes William and Harry. The royal siblings were still only in their early teens when they had to say goodbye to their mother.

Now that 20 years have passed, it’s clear that her legacy continues to live on through her boys. While the somber anniversary approached, both princes have opened up about their memories of their mother and how she continues to be a part of their lives.

That includes the impeccable grace and kindness Diana always embraced while working with the public. You can see those very same qualities in William and Harry as they greet the crowd outside Kensington Palace the day before the 20th anniversary of her passing.

It’s impossible not to think about when they were much younger boys, putting on the same brave faces while mourners brought flowers and mementos to the palace gates all those years ago.

This time, however, they’re joined by William’s wife, Catherine, as they take a stroll through the memorial garden put in place for Diana. The traditional Sunken Garden was transformed with all white blooms in her honor.

Take a look to see how Prince William and Harry continue to honor their mother.
