Princes William and Harry and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, visit the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace in London.

The master of the house, Sean Harkin, as well as a gardener responding to the name of Graham Dillamore, which, in the course of his 35-year career in the park, has known the princess of Wales because of his regular visits, accompanied them to the exit; they were able to detail the design of this garden, and mention to William and Harry favourite plants from their mother.

The 36-year-old princess was with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed and her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones in a Mercedes pursued by paparazzi when the auto crashed in Paris' Alma Tunnel at more than 60 miles per hour (100 kph) on August 31, 1997.

On the eve of the date of the sad anniversary, the two sons of princess Diana and the daughter-in-law that she would have loved to know have launched the tributes.

'The engagement will allow the princes to pay tribute to the life and work of their mother, ' explained a spokesman for Kensington Palace, with rumours that the brothers might be unveiling a tribute to their mother today.

"Together they will reflect on the significant achievement of the princess, and the legacy of her work which continues to resonate with so many today", it said.
