In January, The Diana Award announced that, this year, a special Inaugural Legacy Award would be presented to a group of exceptional young people from across the world to mark the 20th anniversary of the Princess's death. "Even though I wasn't born when she passed away, I have read about the humanitarian work that she did".

"The truth is though, she was taken at only 36, just slightly older then I am today".

The brothers were making their first joint appearance at an event run by the Diana Award, established to promote their mother's belief in the positive power of young people, according to a BBC report. "From helping to shatter the stigma around AIDS, to fighting to ban landmines and supporting the homeless - she touched the lives of millions", William, 34, said.

In recognition of her community service, the royal brothers presented Asha Parkinson from Kent with a Legacy Award which also celebrates the legacy of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

Harry highlighted how his mother, who worked tirelessly on behalf of charities around the world, taught him the "value of doing good when no one is watching". Of course we can never know what our mother would have gone on to do.

One of the judges on the panel s Julia Samuel, Founder Patron of Child Bereavement UK and a friend Diana, who said she "was humbled by reading the extraordinary achievements of every young person who was nominated for this award".
