The princess died on August 31, 1997 in a car crash in Paris - sparking a global outpouring of sympathy for one of the most beloved people in the world.

Her sons – Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry – have already paid tribute to her ahead of the 20-year anniversary.

The princes have visited floral tributes and mementos of the princess left at the gates of Kensington Palace.

The two have been vocal in their work to remember their mother, speaking on a number of documentaries about the Princess of Wales.

Meanwhile, Diana is to be remembered at Mildmay Mission Aids hospital in east London, which she visited often when it was a hospice to care for HIV patients.
