The Duke and Duchess of Sussex marked the 23rd anniversary of Princess Diana’s death on Monday in a very special way. Harry and Meghan joined children and teachers at the Preschool Learning Centre in LA where they planted gorgeous forget-me-nots in a garden, which are known to have been Diana’s favourite flower.
The Assistance League of Los Angeles shared a few photos from the visit overnight, which show the royal couple helping out in the garden. In the sweet pictures, Harry and Meghan are both dressed casually fort he occasion in a shirt and jeans.
“The children of our Preschool Learning Center got a wonderful surprise when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited yesterday!” they captioned the post.
“In addition to helping the children replant the Preschool Learning Center’s garden, they spent time with them, sharing their appreciation for nature and helping to instill the importance of healthy eating. We truly appreciate their time and care for our students.”
Many people commented on the post, praising the couple for their heartfelt gesture, with one writing: “How very precious! This is good work.”
Another added: “Princess Diana would be so proud of them both.” While a third wrote: “What a great way to honour the late Princess Diana.”
This isn’t the first time the couple have honoured Princess Diana. Harry and Meghan also included a sweet nod to baby Archie’s late grandmother on their Instagram last year when they posted an image in celebration of Meghan’s first-ever Mother’s Day. The photo showed little Archie’s feet being cupped sweetly in his mother’s hands, with a sea of forget-me-nots in the background.
It comes days after Prince William and Prince Harry reunited to issue a joint statement regarding the progress of a statue of their late mother, which is due to be installed at Kensington Palace next year, on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday in July 2021.
“The statue that Prince William and Prince Harry have commissioned to commemorate their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, will be installed next year on what would have been her 60th birthday,” a joint statement read, according to Hello! magazine.
“The statue was commissioned to mark the 20th anniversary of her death and recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world. The princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy.”
