A Charity Concert for Princess Diana?

November 26, 2006 / Posted by:

Prince William and the hunkness that is Prince Harry are apparently organizing a charity concert in honor of their mother, Princess Diana, next year. The concert will be on July 1st, their mother’s birthday and be one of the first events at the brand new Wembley Arena in London.

The Daily Mail reports:

The new stadium is due for completion in June 2007. The venue, costing £757million – double the initial estimate – and 15 months past its original deadline, is in desperate need of a spectacular and flawless launch.

It is understood that the Princes hope that by celebrating their mother’s life on what would have been her 46th birthday, the sting will be taken out of August 31 – the date on which she died in Paris.

Because next year is the tenth anniversary of her death, they are aware that the date is bound to resonate publicly more than ever.

An official announcement is due to be made on December 12 but plans for the concert were set in motion during the summer after a series of discussions with their Private Secretary, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, in which William and Harry expressed a desire to honour their mother’s life and continue the legacy of her charitable work.

The Princes have apparently already asked Madonna, Beyonce and Kylie Minogue to all participate. All chicks, eh? I see how it is. They should make their stepmother, Camilla Parker Bowles, sing “Candle in the Wind” now that’s a show!
