Kate Middleton and Prince William are planning on keeping Princess Diana's memory alive with a beautiful gift for her grandchildren.
The royal couple are expecting their second child together later this month, rumoured to be a baby girl.
And while the Duchess of Cambridge never met her husband's late mother, who died in Paris in 1997, it's reported that she wants to ensure her children know who their grandmother was.
It's believed the pair are gathering a 'hope chest' for Prince George (21 months) and his soon-to-be born sibling.

“It’s kind of like a dowry or hope chest and has things in there that the boys have kept from when their mother was alive,” a source exclusively told OKMagazine.com.
“She’s still her babies’ grandmother and wants them to understand just how special she was to the world."
The gift is said to include jewellery and photos belonging to the late Princess.
The website adds that the future King of England never saw his mother as a royal growing up, "she was just his mom, and she adored him and his brother. He had such a happy childhood, and that was all due to her.”
The young royals are said to be expecting their second child on April 25th.
