Prince Harry and Prince William will host a "positive ceremony" at Kensington Palace on Wednesday afternoon, in memory of their late mother, Princess Diana. The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry plan to remind the public of her charitable endeavors.

The brothers will visit the White Garden (opens in new tab) on Wednesday afternoon, a space their mother cherished while living at Kensington Palace. In commemoration of the "People's Princess," the garden was redesigned earlier this year with 12,000 of her favorite flowers now on display.

Diana's sons will meet with six of the charities Diana was a patron of, including the National AIDS Trust, and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

According to a spokesperson (opens in new tab) for the royals, the event is designed to put Diana's "character both as a mother and as someone who was very committed to charity work, into the spotlight."

Commemorative flowers and tributes have already begun to arrive at Kensington Palace's golden gates, ahead of the anniversary of Princess Diana's death, on August 31.
