Late Princess Diana's Sons Plan Concert, Memorial


The sons of Britain's late Princess Diana are planning a pop concert and a memorial service next year to commemorate her life and death.

Princes William and Harry said Tuesday that their mother's favorite entertainers will perform at what they are calling a "Concert for Diana."

They are planning that for July 1 at the still-unfinished Wembley Stadium near London on the day Princess Diana would have turned 46.

Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris on August 31, 1997. William and Harry are planning a separate memorial service in London on the 10th anniversary of her death.

Prince William said in an interview that the concert will be " full of the sort of fun and happiness" that his mother would have wanted.

The band Duran Duran is expected to join singer Elton John at the concert.

The event also will include a performance by the English National Ballet and songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
