LIVE FROM THE ROYAL FAMILY: Harry and William experience pain as brothers as they mark a heartbreaking milestone apart.
PRINCE HARRY and Prince William are due to commemorate a highly personal and painful event today in private.
Today, Prince Harry, 36, and Prince William, 39, are likely to remember their mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris 24 years ago. And they’ll spend the day apart because Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, 40, have relocated in the United States and are unlikely to have traveled across the pond due to COVID-19 travel limitations and their children’s young ages.
The brothers had made no arrangements to commemorate the awful day in public, as they always do.
Last year, Prince Harry and his wife Meghan paid a quiet visit to the Assistance League of Los Angeles Preschool Learning, which offers free early education to low-income families in the Los Angeles area.
They learnt more about the organization during their tour, shared the children’s love of nature, discussed the importance of good eating, and assisted the children in replanting flowers in the Centre’s garden.
There were forget-me-nots among them, which are considered to be Princess Diana’s favorite flowers.
When the Sussexes were still living in the UK in 2019, a source stated that William and Harry had spent the anniversary of their mother’s death reminiscing about Princess Diana.
“They reminisce about the little things about Diana that made them laugh: the ski excursions and outings to Thorpe; the effort she went to on their birthdays – everything,” a source told Us Weekly magazine.
The brothers convened on July 1 at Kensington Palace to honor Princess Diana’s memory and recognize what would have been her 60th birthday, despite the fact that they now reside on opposite sides of the Atlantic.
Prince Harry traveled from his residence in Montecito, Santa Barbara, for the special event, to unveil with Prince William a statue of the late Princess of Wales that they commissioned in 2017.
The princess is surrounded by three children in this statue by British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, which was installed in the Sunken Garden, Diana’s favorite area at her London residence.
While the Sunken Garden is not open to the public, the sculpture is usually free to view from Wednesday to Sunday along Cradle Walk, which surrounds the Sunken Garden.
