Princes William and Harry are set to honor their mother, the late Princess Diana, on what would have been her 56th birthday by attending a graveside service at the island on the Oval Lake outside Althorp House, PEOPLE reports.
The service will be a re-dedication of Diana's grave and will be private, with no press permitted. William's wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and members of Diana's family will also attend.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will attend a private service to re-dedicate the grave of Diana, Princess of Wales at Althorp House on Saturday 1 July,” Kensington Palace said in a statement. “The service, which will fall on what would have been The Princess’s birthday, will be conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury and attended by her family.”
This year will also mark the 20th anniversary of Diana's death, as the princess was killed in a car accident on August 31, 1997. After her September 6 funeral at Westminster Abbey in London, she was buried at Althorp in an intimate ceremony.
The princes are planning to honor their mother with a statue of Diana to be erected at Kensington Palace.
