The temporary feature has been created in the palace’s historic sunken garden, which also features pots of classic English white roses surrounding a reflective pool with ornamental grasses weaving through Cosmos daisies.

Gardeners have recalled that Diana would stop when passing for a chat about their work creating ever-changing floral displays.

Fans of the Princess, who was killed in a car crash in Paris on August 31 1997, have already begun leaving floral tributes and pictures of her at the gates of Kensington Palace.

Her sons have spoken candidly about their mother for the first time in the run-up to the 20th anniversary of her death, describing the personal anguish they experienced and the grief they still feel.

Diana was a woman whose warmth, compassion and empathy for those she met earned her Tony Blair’s description as the “people’s princess”.
