Kate wears striking Prada print dress for visit to Princess Diana garden

Harry and William, joined by his wife Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, visited the Sunken Garden in Kensington Palace, a place Diana was fond of before she died.

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

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

After the garden tour, the princes read cards and messages admirers had left outside the gates of the palace, and the Kensington Palace Twitter account tweeted a message of thanks, saying, "The Duke and Prince Harry are grateful for the many flowers, letters and messages they have received about their Mother".

It was a moment when much of the country seemed united in grief - a time that her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, have said they struggled to understand.

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.

William and Harry have spoken of struggling to comprehend the "alien" wave of public mourning among people who didn't know their mother, at a time when they, aged 15 and 12, could not process their loss.

A public that had lapped up every twist and turn in the life of their fairytale princess was crying for their lost icon, killed in the chase for the next day's pictures.

A team of six gardeners and a number of volunteers spent 18 weeks planting the floral tribute of white roses, white Diana tulips, white hyacinth, forget-me-nots and other favorites of Diana.

"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.
But, apparently, she didn't let that misery stop her from confronting Prince Charles and Camilla about their affair.

Second in line to the throne William said: "She was this ray of light in a fairly grey world".

It's a widely known fact that the Prince wasn't faithful to Princess Diana during their marriage. "I said in the middle under the HRH on a poster". I wanted it to make me. And, she even took it upon herself to speak to Camilla face-to-face.
