Tribute to Diana 15 years after death

London - On the anniversary of Princess Diana's death 15 years ago, the world still hasn't forgotten the iconic figure and her children, Prince William and Harry, are set to pay their own tributes to their late mother.

The Mirror reports that Prince William and his wife, Catherine, are set to attend an orchid naming service at the Singapore Botanical Gardens on Friday. This visit is a stop on their tour for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.

In this historical moment, William and Kate will be the first to witness the flower that Princess Diana never got to see herself.

The princess was set to take a trip to Singapore and witness the bloom of this orchid just before her tragic car accident in Paris and the couple will now honour her memory by completing the journey in her name.
