“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will attend a private service to re-dedicate the grave of Diana, Princess of Wales at Althorp House on Saturday 1 July,” Kensington Palace said in a statement this week.

“The service, which will fall on what would have been The Princess’s birthday, will be conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury and attended by her family.”

According to Vanity Fair, Oval Lake and the memorial to Diana underwent an "extensive redesign" after former personal chef Darren McGrady visited the site in 2014 and discovered it had been neglected.

He pleaded with the Spencers - Diana's family - to tidy up the site.
