William and Harry view tributes to their mother at the gates of Kensington Palace on the eve of the anniversary of her death in tragic echo of scenes 20 years ago when they stood there as boys




The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry paid tribute to their late mother Diana, Princess of Wales during a visit to her memorial garden at Kensington Palace on the eve of the 20th anniversary of her death.
Sheltering from the downpour with umbrellas William and Harry, joined by the Duchess of Cambridge, toured the White Garden, which has been planted in the Princess's memory to mark two decades since she died.
Fans of Diana, who was killed in a Paris car crash on August 31 1997, have already begun leaving floral tributes and pictures of the Princess at the gates of the Palace, which was her home from 1981 until her death.
And following their tour of the memorial garden today, the royal brothers took an impromptu walkabout around the front of the palace, speaking to well-wishers and inspecting the heartfelt tributes left in her memory.
Today, the princes were dressed casually in chinos and suede boots - a stark contrast to the dark suits they wore ahead of her funeral two decades ago.
Earlier, William and Harry said they were 'thrilled' with the garden designed in their mother's memory, as they recalled visiting it as small boys.
The Duke of Cambridge said he remembered 'seeing the pigeons and squirrels', adding: 'We used to come here a lot.'
