Today, William, Kate and Harry visited the ‘White Garden’ at Kensington Palace. Historic Royal Palaces planted the garden in memory of Diana Princess of Wales.
The commemorative display marks the two decades since the Princess’ death.
As its name suggests, the White Garden has been filled with white flowers and foliage.
Historic Royal Palaces say the flowers were inspired by memories of Diana’s “life, image and style”.
The display includes English white roses, ornamental grasses and Cosmos daisies.

Kensington Palace, the location of the memorial garden, was Diana’s former home. Of course, William, Kate and Harry have apartments in the palace today.
Unfortunately, the weather didn’t hold out for the visit. The skies were overcast and it was raining.
Definitely umbrella weather!
Sean Harkin, Historic Royal Palaces’ Head Gardner, met William, Kate and Harry upon their arrival. He showed the trio some of Diana’s favourite flowers.
After, William, Kate and Harry met with representatives from various charities supported by Diana, including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the National Aids Trust, The Leprosy Mission, Royal Marsden Hospital, English National Ballet and Centrepoint.
The brothers viewed the tributes to their mother at the gates of Kensington Palace. They also briefly spoke to some of the well-wishers gathered nearby.
Kate chose a green floral dress by Prada.
The dress features a poppy print design. As Susan from What Kate Wore noted, “the poppies in the print were a lovely symbol, representing remembrance and consolation.”
The 100% silk-crepe dress features a softly pleated knee-length skirt, an elegant necktie, full-length cuffed sleeves and a smocked waistband.
The earrings feature a multi-faceted Green Onyx gemstone encased in 18ct gold plated sterling silver. The earrings cost £125 GBP / $195 USD and can still be purchased from MonicaVinader.com and Nordstrom.com.
Kate chose her L.K. Bennett Fern heels for the visit to the gardens. The shoes feature an elegant pointed toe and a slim heel. They’re made from nude-coloured Nappa leather.
