Princes William and Harry are to honour their mother on her 20th death anniversary death

Princes William and Harry are to honour their mother by creating a new garden at Kensington Palace.

The floral project will mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, next year.

She adored flowers and it is thought the new garden will feature white roses, her favourite blooms, and lily of the valley, which she loved too.

There will also be an exhibition inside the palace where the two princes grew up and where William and Kate now live with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

An advert on the Historic Royal Palaces website for a trainee gardener to help, says: “The gardens are continuously developing, and you will play a key part in this. You will join at an exciting time when we will be planting a temporary garden project to celebrate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales.”

Her death in a Paris car crash on August 31, 1997, will forever be synonymous with the sea of floral tributes that were laid at the palace gates amid an unprecedented outpouring of grief.

It is estimated up to 15 tons of bouquets, including 60 million individual flowers, were scattered to honour her.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said it was “too early” to comment on what other commemorations were being planned to mark her death.

Then on Friday Harry, 31, paid tribute to his mother during an emotional interview with the US network ABC, saying he and William, 33, would “do everything we can to make sure she’s never forgotten.”

He also spoke of the impact Diana’s death has had on them, adding: “I hope she’s looking down with tears in her eyes, being incredibly proud of what we’ve established.”
