Plans are being drawn up for the creation of a memorial garden to commemorate the life of Diana, Princess of Wales on the 20th anniversary of her death, Kensington Palace has confirmed.

Historic Royal Palaces recently advertised for a new gardener to help with the project, expected to be completed before the anniversary on August 31, 2017.

Diana, who died in a car accident in a Paris underpass with her partner Dodi Fayed, would have been 56 if she had survived the crash in 1997.

The garden, in the "very early stages of development", will become the fourth London memorial to pay tribute to Diana, joining the Diana Memorial Playground at Kensington Palace, the Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, and the Diana Memorial Walk at St James Palace.
