Princes William and Harry have reunited in honour of Princess Diana.

Prince William and Prince Harry have reunited in honour of their late mother Princess Diana.

The Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex tragically lost their mother back 1997, and subsequently the British government set up the Diana Award to continue the late Princess’s legacy.

And now the two brothers, who haven’t made a joint appearance since the Duke of Sussex officially stepped back as a senior member of the Royal Family back in March, have sent a lovely letter to the award’s organisation.

We’ve received a lovely message from HRH the Duke of Cambridge,’ wrote the organisation on their Instagram page, alongside a series of lovely photos of the two Princes working with them.

Thank you to the Duke and the Duke of Sussex for all your support over the years and now in this uncertain time.

‘We’re incredibly grateful for all of our supporters (including you reading this right now) for making it possible for us to help young people change the world.

We hope this brightens your day - it certainly did ours!’.

They then shared slides revealing what Prince William’s letter said, reading, ‘I wanted to write to send my support and thanks to all the staff, volunteers and supporters of The Diana Award.

‘My brother and I remain ever appreciative of the work you do to foster, develop and support young people, particularly at this time of uncertainty.

Whilst you are finding yourselves adapting to new ways of working there is no doubt that your support for young people, through what will be anxious and unsettling times for many, is as important as ever.

‘This comes with my very best wishes for good health to you and your families over the coming weeks’.

What a lovely gesture from the two Dukes!

Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
