The day Britain stood still: Princess Diana's funeral

William and Harry remember Princess Diana with visit to memorial garden

But what many don't know is that Princess Diana knew about their relationship (which began even before they tied the knot) - and she wasn't silent about it either.

William and Harry were just 15 and 12, respectively, when their mother died on August 31, 1997, at age 36, due to injuries sustained in a vehicle crash in Paris.

People leave tributes outside Kensington Palace on the anniversary of Princess Diana's death.

The pair were accompanied on Wednesday afternoon by Prince William's wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, as they toured what had been known as the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in London, to mark two decades on from the death of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

Prince Harry was seen laying flowers at a tribute to his mother that had been created by fans at the Kensington Palace gates APTN Prince William looked solemn as he read some of the messages left to his late 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".

Joel Osteen's Church accused of closing doors to Hurricane Harvey Flood victims
The storm and ensuing flooding have left at least 300,000 people without power and roughly 30,000 displaced to temporary shelters. It has been reported on Twitter by people living in the Houston area that Joel Osteen has closed Lakewood Church due to flooding.

Diana's two sons on Wednesday met representatives of the charities she supported in a public garden at Kensington Palace, their home and where their mother lived until she was killed in a vehicle crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.

"She was such a fun, handsome person, and a humanitarian", Tasha says.

Her unusual combination of fragility and steel, her need for loving attention and an ability to make those she met feel loved.

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.

Above the flowers, a rain-spattered banner shows pictures of Diana with her sons and the words: "Grandma Diana".

"When you have something so traumatic as the death of your mother when you're 15, it will either make or break you", William said in the "Diana, 7 Days" BBC documentary. 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.
