How William and Harry mark anniversary of Princess Diana’s death every year

Princes William and Harry were just 15 and 12 when their dad sat them down to tell them their mother had died in a car crash.

Tomorrow marks the 22nd anniversary of her tragic death, and the brothers are expected to mark the difficult day in the same way they normally do – together.

The princes support each other through the horrible date every year, and use the opportunity to look through old photographs and talk about their favourite memories, reports Hello magazine .

William and Harry spend the morning together before being joined by Kate and Meghan and their children in the afternoon.

This year will be the first time Diana's fourth grandchild Archie Harrison joined occasion.

A source told the magazine: "They talk about the little things about Diana that made them laugh: the ski trips and outings to Thorpe Park; the effort she went to on their birthdays – all of it.

"Their other halves and kids join them later."

Diana was very close to her sons and torn up the Royal Rulebook when it came to their upbringing.

Before Diana, royal children were mainly raised by Palace staff including a team of dedicated nannies.

The Queen wasn't particularly involved in raising her children, and was often away for a months at a time when they were young.

But after the birth of Princes William and Harry, Diana changed all this with her hands-on approach.

Even though she was only 21 when she became a mum, she was determined to do a lot of the day-to-day child care and refused to leave her boys at home when she went away on Royal Tours, taking them with her instead.

But her parenting reportedly didn't go down well with other members of the family.

Charles apparently "frowned upon" her attitude and the Queen simply didn't understand.

According to royal expert Andrew Morton, the monarch voiced this view during a trip to Balmoral.

William's nanny wasn't there, so Diana did all the childcare, to which to Queen reportedly say: "I don't understand why Diana has to do this. There are millions of housemaids around."
