And, she even took it upon herself to speak to Camilla face-to-face.

But the end of August marks two decades since the princess died in a vehicle crash in Paris, prompting some people to pay their respects once more.

William and Harry will also meet representatives from the charities supported by Diana in the final years of her life, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the National Aids Trust, The Leprosy Mission, Royal Marsden Hospital, English National Ballet and Centrepoint.

Since last April, Princes William and Harry have been doing an unprecedented press blitz to honor her legacy: Prince Harry, for example, did a controversial Newsweek interview, and both princes appeared in documentaries by HBO, ITV, and the BBC.

The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry have made a personal pilgrimage to view the floral tributes left in memory of their mother as Harry confessed "all of us lost somebody".

Fresh revelations about her life and a raft of TV documentaries have sprung up around the anniversary.

The life of Diana - a shy, teenage aristocrat who suddenly became the world's most famous woman - and her tragic death at 36 still captivates millions across the globe.

"At the time I wanted the Queen back down here with William and Harry, back down in London with the people".

On the eve of the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death, her sons - as well as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge - toured the memorial White Garden at Kensington Palace.

The White Garden is the fourth memorial to the popular princess since her death two decades ago. "As we've been working in the garden, many of our palace visitors have stopped to talk to us and share their own memories of Diana, Princess of Wales", Harkin said in April.

Candles, bouquets of flowers and pictures from well-wishers are already building up at the palace gates, while hardcore Diana fans have turned up with a cake bearing her picture.

Maria Scott was one of them, but she has since changed her mind and believes the public was "a bit selfish". Photographs and messages had been attached to its front gates as the public paid their respects, although in far fewer numbers than immediately after her death.
