Prince William and Harry have attended a service to rededicate the grave of their mother Princess Diana almost 20 years after she died.

An emotional service was held in private at Diana’s family home in Northamptonshire on Saturday, what would have been the princess of Wales’ birthday.

The service, which was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, was also attended by the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

It comes after both Princes openly discussed their personal battles following the death of their mother, with Harry admitting he was in “total chaos” after his mother’s death.

Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris in August 1997, when Prince William was 15 and Harry just 12 years old.

A statue has also been commissioned for Kensington Palace by the two Princes to mark the 20th anniversary of their mother’s death.

Kensington Palace said in a brief statement: “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.”

Diana is buried on an island in an ornamental lake known as The Oval within Althorp Park’s Pleasure Garden.
