A new memorial to Diana, Princess of Wales, is being planned and is in the early stages of development reports confirmed on Sunday. The memorial garden will celebrate her life on the 20th anniversary of her death in 1997.

Kensington Palace officials confirmed to Sky News that palace officials were working with the project's charity to find suitable options. The garden would be the fourth memorial to Diana in London after the Diana Memorial Playground at Kensington Palace, the Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, and the Diana Memorial Walk at St James's Palace.

The garden is expected to be finished before 31 August 2017, the 20th anniversary of Diana's death. Diana died after the car she was in crashed in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris, also killing her companion Dodi Al Fayed and the driver, Henri Paul.

A spokesperson for Historic Royal Palaces, who recently advertised for a gardener for the project, told Sky: "Our plans are still at the earliest stages of development, and we're recruiting for staff to help us explore the possibilities." They also said that the Princes William and Harry, Diana's sons, are informed of the project.
