All the ways William and Harry are keeping Diana's legacy alive

It's been nearly 20 years since Princess Diana's untimely death but her sons are making sure her memory lives on.

July 1st, 2017 marks what would have been Princess Diana's 56th birthday and while she might not be here to celebrate, her two boys continue to honour her in so many inspiring ways.
From charity work to travel and of course, the beautiful tribute in Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge's name - Prince William, 35, and his younger brother Prince Harry, 32, have gone to great lengths to preserve their mother's memory.
Speaking of his immeasurable grief, William once mused: "Initially, there is a sense of profound shock and disbelief that this could ever happen to you. Real grief often does not hit home until much later. For many it is a grief never entirely lost."
"Life is altered as you know it, and not a day goes past without you thinking about the one you have lost."
But the sons of the late Princess of Wales use their mother's memory to keep them going. In 2007, the aptly named Concert For Diana at London's Wembley Stadium was a huge success. All the proceeds from the gig went to a variety of charities including the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, Sentebale and Centrepoint.
"We always wanted to do something for her, and we wanted to mark it in a specifically special way. We didn't want to have just a memorial service. We wanted to have a concert for her life and energy and all things that we thought she brought," William said at the time.
And just this year, they held the very first Legacy Awards at a ceremony for the Diana Award youth charity, the only non-profit organisation established in the princess' name.
