British princes mark anniversary of Diana's death with low-key tribute

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

They were to meet representatives of the charities Diana supported, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the National Aids Trust and The Leprosy Mission, at Kensington Palace, the princes' current home and their mother's residence until she was killed in a auto crash on Aug 31, 1997.

Her friend, John Loughrey, wearing a union jack shirt with matching hat, said he "cried all through the night" upon hearing the news of Diana's death.

After the garden tour, the princes read cards and messages admirers had left outside the gates of the palace, and the Kensington Palace Twitter account tweeted a message of thanks, saying, "The Duke and Prince Harry are grateful for the many flowers, letters and messages they have received about their Mother".

Harry, interviewed for an ITV documentary about his mother, said: "There's not a day that William and I don't wish that she was. still around".

In a sign of Diana's fading legacy, The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, a charity set up in the days after her death, shut down in 2012 after spending £112 million on charitable causes.

Fresh revelations about her life and a raft of TV documentaries have sprung up around the anniversary.

We hate the thought that Princess Diana was that miserable in her marriage when it had only started.

He said: "I can imagine for a lot of you it was like "right here we go, now we've got her, we've got the thirst, we've got the attention, now let's do something" then suddenly she's snapped away - if I can put it (this way) all of us lost somebody". Note that "Forget-me-not" is the translation of "Sentebale" (language sesotho), the name that prince Harry has given to the foundation that he created for underprivileged children of Lesotho, an initiative that reminds us of the love and dedication of her mother to Africa.

They also met with palace gardener, Sean Harkin, who designed the garden and actually knew Princess Diana from his time working there. The garden has been planted in white and dedicated to the princess at her former home, where she once would stroll by and ask the gardeners about their ever-changing displays. 'Our mother touched so many lives.

The day before, they will take a tour of one of Kensington Palace's public gardens, transformed temporarily in memory of Diana.
