Kate Middleton and Prince William's baby tribute to Princess Diana
Kate Middleton is to have a baby shower with close family and friends
Prince William wishes his mum could have seen his marriage to Kate Middleton
Princess Diana died in Paris in 1997
And last year, in a rare insight into his grief, Prince William admitted that he'd missed his mum most on the day he married wife Kate Middleton, saying: 'It was the one time since she's died where I thought to myself that it'd be fantastic if she was here.'
So understandably, now, as he prepares to celebrate another major milestone in his life with the arrival of his first child, 30-year-old Wills is feeling his mother's absence more than ever.
It's for this reason that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come up with a way to ensure they remember Diana ahead of the birth.
The couple are planning a baby shower at Kensington Palace on Sunday 30 June - significantly, the day before what would've been Diana's birthday.
