Meanwhile, Kate, William, and Harry met with representatives of charities Diana had supported, including the National Aids Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital, the Leprosy Mission, and the English National Ballet as they marked the 20th anniversary of Diana's death.

The royal trio paid tribute to Diana on a tour of the Sunken Garden, which has been transformed into the White Garden in Diana's memory this summer.

Head Gardener Sean Harkin led the royals on a walk around the grounds and pointed out a number of the late Princess' favorite flowers on the way, from lilies to white roses.

The garden is the fourth London memorial to Diana, and the temporary tribute will stay open to visitors until the end of the year.
