BRITISH PRINCES William and Harry attended a private service last Saturday to re-dedicate the grave of their mother Princess Diana on what would have been her 56th birthday.
The service took place at Diana’s resting place on the Althorp Estate, her family’s ancestral home in central England, where the princes were joined by William’s wife Kate and members of Diana’s family.
The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the spiritual leader of the Anglican Communion conducted the ceremony.
With the 20th anniversary of her death approaching, both William, 35 and Harry, 32, have spoken publicly about the impact that losing their mother has had on their lives.
Both princes have become prominent mental health campaigners and William said in April the shock of losing his mother still lingered.
‘You never get over it, it’s such an unbelievably big moment in your life that it never leaves you. You just learn to deal with it,’ he said.
Meanwhile, Harry said he had come close to a ‘complete breakdown’ on several occasions and had sought counselling in his late twenties to help deal with the grief of losing Diana.
