Prince Harry and Prince William lay flowers in memory of HRH Princess Diana on the 20th Anniversary of her death

On the eve of the 20th anniversary of the death of their mother, Prince Harry and Prince William walked from their home at Kensington Palace through a gate to the Sunken Gardens at Kensington Palace.  Accompanied by the Duchess of Cambridge, they walked around the garden inspired by Princess Diana.  The two princes then walked to the gates of Kensington Palace, where 20 years ago it was a sea of flowers.  Many well wishers were present with small bouquets of flowers.  Some were handed to the princes who returned to the gate to lay them. The scene was touchingly poignant of a similar scene so many years ago when the world watched with their hearts in their mouths as two young boys faced the world without their mother.
