Prince George and Princess Charlotte were taken to their grandmother, Princess Diana’s grave to mark her 56th birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took George, three, and Charlotte, two, to an emotional rededication ceremony at Diana’s family home.

It’s believed the service, which was also attended by Prince Harry and Diana’s brother Earl Spencer, was an intimate gathering.

‘It is 20 years since Princess Diana’s death and it is important to them that George and Charlotte are able to show their respects,’ a source told the Mirror.

William was just 15 years old, and his brother Harry 12, when Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.

She was buried on an island in the ornamental Oval Lake at the Althorp Estate in Northamptonshire.

Diana’s two older sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, 60, and Baroness Fellowes, 62, attended Saturday’s service, which was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

However, Prince Charles and Camilla were conspicuously absent.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were in Ottawa, Canada, performing royal duties to mark Canada Day.

William and Harry are also remembering their mother by commissioning a statue of her to stand in the public gardens of Kensington Palace, which was Diana’s old home.
