This year marks 20 years since the tragic passing of Princess Diana. She died on August 31, 1997, in a car crash in Paris and now, her grave is getting a private rededication service for those close to the late Princess.
Kensington Palace confirms to ET Canada that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are set to attend a private service, which will be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.
“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. 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,” the Palace said in an official statement.
The rededication service will be held at the Althorp House in Northamptonshire on Saturday, July 1, which would have been Diana’s 56th birthday. Of course, the late Princess Di’s grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will also be in attendance.
Prince Charles will not be present at the rededication ceremony as he and Camilla will be in Canada over the weekend taking part in the Canada 150 celebrations.
William and Harry have commissioned for a statue of their mother to mark the 20th anniversary of her passing, which will be erected on the public grounds of her former residence, Kensington Palace.
