At first, it's hard to believe it's been 20 years since the death of Princess Diana, but consider that in 1997 the Spice Girls were still together and at the height of their stardom... and maybe it was a long time ago? At any rate, to mark the 20 year anniversary of the loss of the People's Princess, charity organisation The Diana Award will host a series of year-long events aimed at promoting the very qualities Diana was known for: compassion, kindness and service.
Kicking off with a National Kindness Day in March, the initiative will also include an exhibition at Princess Diana's brother, Earl Spencer's home called Walking in Her Shoes. The Diana Award also plans to honour 20 young people from around the world who demonstrate the same humanitarian values as the late Princess. They're inviting nominations for people aged 9-18 be to put forward for an international Legacy Award.
In addition, Kensington Palace are planning to honour Princess Diana with an memorial garden which will showcase some of her most iconic outfits. Express.co.uk reports that Diana's sons Prince William and Prince Harry will be on board to celebrate the various initiatives as well.
Get ready for a year of Princess Diana tributes - and thank Netflix for gifitng us with the delicious English Royal drama show The Crown. If you haven't already sunk your teeth in to this excellent series, we suggest you do so. They'll apprently be covering Charles and Diana in season 3 and 4.
Nominations for the 20 Legacy Awards can be be made at diana-award.org.uk/nominate and the closing date is March 17.
