Princes William, Harry honour Diana's charity work

Flowers, cards, photographs and even a huge cake have been left outside London's Kensington Palace, as the world prepares to mark 20 years since Princess Diana died.

Two decades later, Diana is once again front page news.

The pair have also released three of their favourite photos from an album put together by Diana, including one where she is holding Prince William at the time she was pregnant with Prince Harry. The trio braved the wet weather to carry out an emotional engagement, paying tribute to Diana on the eve of her death anniversary.

It is a more muted affair than in 1997, when a sea of flowers formed outside the gates after Diana's death.

Diana died in a vehicle crash in Paris in the early hours of August 31, 1997, along with Dodi Fayed, her wealthy Egyptian film producer boyfriend of two months, and a drink-impaired, speeding driver Henri Paul, who was trying to evade paparazzi.

When it came to make-up, she enhanced her large brown eyes with a sleek flick of black liner and layers of mascara, and added a feminine touch to her look with a sweep of rose-hued blush across the apples of her cheeks.

The three royals headed to Kensington Palace's White Garden, which was specially designed as a special tribute to the late princess, in the torrential rain to pay their respects.

William and Harry stopped to look at the heartfelt messages, pictures and flowers left in remembrance of Diana, Princess of Wales at the gates of her former home Kensington Palace. 'Our mother touched so many lives.

Outside the palace, Britons left flowers of their own on Tuesday.

William and Harry's appearance had attracted several hundred well-wishers who lined crash barriers and the brothers each placed a floral tribute at the gates for fans of their mother.

"When you have something so traumatic as the death of your mother when you're 15, it will either make or break you", William said in the "Diana, 7 Days" BBC documentary.

"I never met her but I felt like I'd lost someone so close to me ... and I can't explain why I felt like that", she said.

On the day of her funeral on 6 September, a nation mourned the death of the People's Princess.

A smudged note, signed by the Gould family, from Egham in Surrey, reads: "Still not forgotten after 20 years", while another letter says that her "two boys are like you in so many ways".
