Princes William and Harry visit Diana memorial garden

Princess Diana was killed in a vehicle crash in Paris on August 31, 1997.

A French investigation, a British police inquiry and a coroner's inquest all concluded there was no foul play in the princess' fatal auto crash - but that has not completely silenced speculation that Diana was the victim of an Establishment murder plot.

Michael Mansfield was the lawyer of Mohammed Al Fayed, Dodi's father, during the inquest into Princess Diana's death.

"They remember Princess Diana coming by and she would stop and she would admire the changing floral displays in the garden, " he said.

Sheltering under umbrellas, William, Harry and Kate took a tour of the renamed White Garden, which has been transformed temporarily with white English roses and forget-me-nots planted earlier this year.

The princes inspected the dozens of bouquets left in front of Kensington Palace, before Harry laid his own floral tribute, given to him by a member of the public.

Princes William and Harry were to pay tribute to their mother yesterday.

While Kate never met the Princess of Wales, following her engagement to William she did say she was an "inspirational woman to look up to", and that she would have loved to have met her.

"Then suddenly she's snapped away; if I can put it (this way), all of us lost somebody".

As the rain came steadily down, they looked at the flowers and posters on the palace gates as a small crowd watched silently...

Handwritten notes on bunches of flowers read: "Diana, a courageous princess, your sons have your courage" and "our country was so very lucky to have you".

Second in line to the throne William said: "She was this ray of light in a fairly grey world".

Helen Zacharia, 62, who tied a bouquet to the gates, told AFP: "I come down every year because I've always liked Diana".

"I said, 'Camilla, I'd just like you to know that I know exactly what's going on.' And she said, 'I don't know what you're talking about, '" she recalled.

The White Garden now marks the fourth memorial in London that has been dedicated to The People's Princess.

The lawyer explained that his suspicion was based on the fact that the police ignored Diana's note where she supposedly wrote that her husband, Prince Charles, was drawing up a plan for her death through a collision.
