Prince William and Prince Harry “will pay their own private respects to Princess Diana rather than doing so in public – or together”, according to royal aides.
Tributes and flowers to remember the former princess have flooded in, including from her brother Charles Spencer who posted a photo of Diana’s ancestral home Althorp with a flag flying at half mast.
However, her sons will not be coming together on the 25th anniversary of their mothers death.
Royal aides told The Daily Mail that Harry and William will each pay their respects privately rather than together.
The brothers were aged just 15 and 12 when their mother died.
Last year they spent a portion of the day together at the unveiling of a bronze statue of their mother in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace.
They said: “He will no doubt spend the day reflecting on his mother’s incredible legacy and the work he continues to do every day to further it in any way he can.”
Harry has also not made any public appearances but he did speak about the special date while at the Sentebale Polo Cup in Aspen, Colorado last week.
He said: “Next week is the 25th anniversary of my mother’s death, and she most certainly will never be forgotten.
“I want it to be a day filled with memories of her incredible work and love for the way she did it.
“I want it to be a day to share the spirit of my mum with my family, with my children, who I wish could have met her.
“Every day, I hope to do her proud.”
