It was set up in 1999, two years after her untimely death in a car crash in Paris at 36 岁. “And this year is also 25 years since her passing. There isn’t a day during the past two and half decades where I haven’t thought about the mark she left not only on me and my brother but on all of our lives.

Harry said he saw his mother’s legacy – who was known for her charitable work – in the recipients.

I see her legacy in a Diana Award community that spans multiple generations,” 他继续. “I see her legacy every time I meet with families, young people and children from all corners of the world. 和, I see my mum’s legacy when I look at my own children every day.

William also honored his mother in a letter to the honorees that said in part, “You truly are the personification of my mother’s legacy and I know she would be so proud of you all.
