Her sons Prince William and Prince Harry were both in attendance, in addition to Kate Middleton and both Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

"One of the reasons I want to talk now is because I think after 20 years someone shifts from being a contemporary person to one of history, " Earl Spencer said. "We couldn't protect her".

Diana, who was married to Britain's Prince Charles from 1981 to 1996, died from injuries sustained in a Paris vehicle wreck on August 31, 1997.

"The service, which will fall on what would have been The Princess's birthday, will be conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury and attended by her family".

Diana is buried in the grounds of Althorp House in Northamptonshire and the service will be held today - her 56th birthday.

Princess Diana's grave was rededicated on her birthday after the service that was given in her honor.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, did not attend the tribute as they were in Ottawa, Canada on a three-day royal tour to mark the country's 150-year anniversary, also on Saturday.

Princess Diana lives on through the work she did and through the work her children are still doing.

Also present were Diana's siblings - her brother, Earl Spencer, and her two older sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Baroness Fellowes. "And I think it's important for people under 35 who probably won't remember her at all to remember that this was a special person and not just a handsome one".

It comes after both William and Harry spoke publicly about the impact of their mum's death.

According to an upcoming BBC documentary, now titled Diana, the princes plan to "stand up for her name" and fulfil what they consider their duty "as sons" to remind everyone "of the character and person that she was".

The royal brothers are commemorating the anniversary by commissioning a statue of their mother which will stand in the public gardens of her former home Kensington Palace in London.
