It's a milestone week for the British royal family.

Today marks Prince William's first day as a full-time royal after officially retiring from his work as a pilot with East Anglian Air Ambulance and he spent the day honouring his later mother Princess Diana's memory with wife Kate Middleton and brother Prince Harry.

The trio visited a garden created in her memory on the grounds of Kensington Palace, before the 20th anniversary of her death on Thursday. The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a striking silk print Prada dress with pussybow detail, which retails for €1,500.

As torrential rain fell, William, Kate and Harry, sheltering under umbrellas, toured the White Garden, inspired by memories of the Princess's life, style and image.

The temporary feature has been created in the palace's historic sunken garden, which also features pots of classic English white roses surrounding a reflective pool with ornamental grasses weaving through Cosmos daisies.

Gardeners have recalled that Diana would stop when passing for a chat about their work creating ever-changing floral displays.

Fans of the Princess, who was killed in a car crash in Paris on August 31 1997, have already begun leaving floral tributes and pictures of her at the gates of Kensington Palace.

Her sons have spoken candidly about their mother for the first time in the run-up to the 20th anniversary of her death, describing the personal anguish they experienced and the grief they still feel.
