The world still loves Princess Diana. A tribute concert was held on July 1 at the Wembley Stadium in London, England to mark the 10th anniversary of the Princess of Wales.


Her sons Prince William and Prince Harry joined more than 60,000 fans to celebrate the life of their mother. The “Concert for Diana” was broadcast to over 500 million homes. The tribute, which would have been Diana’s 46th birthday brought a bevy of performers-including Elton John, (who opened the event with a performance of “Your Song” before introducing the two princes, who received a standing ovation), Fergie, Duran Duran, Tom Jones, Nelly Furtado, P. Diddy, Natasha Bedingfield, Kanye West and Take That, among many others. William said: “This event is about all that our mother loved in life - her music, her dancing, her charities and her family and friends. “We just want you to have an awesome time and enjoy the line-up”. Kate Middleton, Prince William’s ex girlfriend was also in attendance, adding fuel to the rumor that the couple has reconciled. “It’s great to see so many of you here supporting this very special show, “ said Harry.
