Princes William & Harry Pay Tribute to Their Late Mother Princess Diana

William and Harry also made an impromptu visit to speak with well-wishers and view the tributes and cards left at the gates of Kensington Palace, where Princess Diana lived from 1981 until her death.

William, Harry, and Kate are now trying to keep Diana's memory alive for her grandchildren, Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2.

Since last April, Princes William and Harry have been doing an unprecedented press blitz to honor her legacy: Prince Harry, for example, did a controversial Newsweek interview, and both princes appeared in documentaries by HBO, ITV, and the BBC. The trio braved the wet weather to carry out an emotional engagement, paying tribute to Diana on the eve of her death anniversary.

Harry and William, joined by his wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, visited the Sunken Garden in Kensington Palace, a place Diana was fond of before she died.

It is a more muted affair than in 1997, when a sea of flowers formed outside the gates after Diana's death.

Announcing the artwork in January this year, William and Harry had said, "It has been 20 years since our mother's death and the time is right to recognise her positive impact in the United Kingdom and around the world with a permanent statue".

The life of Diana - a shy, teenage aristocrat who suddenly became the world's most famous woman - and her tragic death at 36 still captivates millions across the globe.

William, 35, and Harry, 32, stood looking at photos and floral tributes left for their mother at the Golden Gates of the palace.

The pair held a tribute concert featuring Elton John and Duran Duran for Diana, who was a great fan of music and musical theater, at London's Wembley Stadium on what would have been her 46th birthday. "I remember crying my heart out on my honeymoon", she said, likening herself to a "sacrificial lamb".

It's a widely known fact that the Prince wasn't faithful to Princess Diana during their marriage. "I said, 'I know what's going on between you and Charles".

On the day of her funeral on 6 September, a nation mourned the death of the People's Princess.
