It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 20 years since the day that sent shockwaves across the world. Princess Diana died in a car accident on August 31, 1997 in Paris, leaving behind a devastated family, two young sons and mass of adoring fans.

Now, 19 years on, Historic Royal Palaces, a charity that works with Kensington Palace, has announced a memorial garden for Diana, Princess of Wales, is being planned for the anniversary next year.

It will be the fourth London memorial created in tribute to Diana if it reaches completion, reports the BBC.

Historic Royal Palaces recently advertised for a new gardener to help with the project, which is expected to be completed before the anniversary on 31 August 2017.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace confirmed they were working with Historic Royal Palaces.

He also said the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, were being kept “informed” about the garden project and have given it their blessing.

A spokeswoman for Historic Royal Palaces said: “Our plans are still at the earliest stages of development, and we’re recruiting for staff to help us explore the possibilities”.

The announcement comes just a few days after Prince Harry gave a heartfelt interview, and said he hoped his mum was proud of him.

“We (Harry and William) will do everything we can to make sure that she’s never forgotten and carry on all the special gifts, as such, that she had and that she portrayed while she was alive,” Prince Harry told Good Morning America, reports ABC News USA.

No doubt they will, and this memorial garden will be a testament to that.

    • What’s your problem? No skin off your nose!
      Princess Diana was a beautiful lady with a big heart. She has worked very hard to bring to light many things for the people and children without a voice. Thank your lucky stars that you have a good life, I sure do!

  2. Charming comment, take it you will not worry if anything happens to your family

  3. Who cares, I don’t. Have never understood the Diana fuss, she was just a royal. Did good work re land mine removal but so did many, many others. I am not posting too quickly.

    • Yes, many others have done great things, but Princess Diana with her high profile, could bring these things to light. This lady had a big heart and was a. Eautiful lady who adored her children. It’s no skin off your nose, so if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything.

  4. I hope they finish the memorial garden for Diana. This is dear to my heart as Diana was the one that bought people back to the royal family. I know that Diana is looking down at her sons William and Harry and is very proud of both of them.

  5. I do wonder with some comments if there is any humanity in them, but then I guess if their footy team lost they would be in tears for a week.

    I say not before time for the memorial garden.

  6. I think that it is wonderful the Diana’s sons think so highly of their mother and show respect for her, the mother that they lost when they were so young, they must have missed her terrible.

  7. What a wonderful thing to do for everybody to remember a wonderful human being who was treated so badly by the royal family. God bless you William and Harry.

  8. It’s sad that she died (Google Boston Brakes) but it’s been nearly twenty years now…
    How about leaving her alone and accept that she’s gone?
