The princes paid special tribute to their mother on the eve of her anniversary of death.

The past few weeks have likely been incredibly tough for Prince William and Prince Harry.

It has been leading up to the 20th anniversary of their mother Diana Princess of Wales' tragic death and on the eve of the anniversary the young royals headed to her memorial garden in Kensington alongside William's wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

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.

The gardens were created following a landscaping tradition established in Sissinghurst Castle Garden which aims to create 'a peaceful and contemplative space where visitors can reflect'.

They also met with palace gardener, Sean Harkin, who designed the garden and actually knew Princess Diana from his time working there.
