William and Harry were 15 and 12 when their mother died.

At the time of her death, the brothers were on holiday at Balmoral Castle with the Queen and their father Prince Charles.

Last month, the Duke of Sussex opened up about his mother’s funeral during his AppleTV+ series The Me You Can’t See.

He said: “For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horse’s hooves going along the Mall, the red brick road.

“By this point both of us were in shock,” referencing William.

“It was like I was outside of my body.

What did Harry say?

“I’m just walking along and doing what was expected of me…

“…showing the one-tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing.

“This was my mum, you never even met her.”

William and Harry will reportedly reunite on July 1 for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace.

However, Harry will reportedly fly over from America alone.

His wife Meghan Markle will stay in California to look after son Archie and their newborn daughter, Lilibet.
