Princess Diana's Brother Paid Tribute to Her on the Anniversary of Her Death

Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, honored the late princess on the anniversary of her death.

Princess Diana's brother, Charles Spencer, is honoring his sister on the anniversary of her tragic death.

On Monday, he shared a photo of the Spencer family flag at half-mast, writing, "My first family duty on 31 August. Never forgotten."

People reports that the photo was taken at Diana's family home, Althorp House in Northamptonshire, England. The house has been in her family for more than 500 years and is currently the home of her brother and his family. It is also the site of the late princess’s grave.

On Aug. 31, 1997, Princess Diana passed away after a car crash in Paris. Last week, Princes William and Harry made a rare joint statement announcing they will commemorate what would have been their mother's 60th birthday with a memorial.

A statue of the late princess will be placed in the garden of Diana's former home, Kensington Palace, and, the statement explained, allow visitors to "reflect on her life and legacy."

The statue will be unveiled on July 1, 2021.

In 2017, Charles Spencer reflected on his sister's legacy, telling ABC, "Obviously 99.9 percent of the people had never seen her, or met her, but they felt something in her that was fascinating and intriguing, and a force for good."
