Princess Diana left behind tear-jerking gift for Prince Harry’s 30th birthday

The death of the much-loved Princess Diana shocked the whole world in 1997.

The whole world mourned for her, and felt for the two young sons she had left behind – Prince William and Prince Harry.

The “People’s Princess” tragically died in a car crash in Paris alongside her boyfriend Dodi Fayed.

But before her death the ex-wife of Prince Charles had made several final wishes.

Her will included one particularly tear-jerking gift for when Prince Harry turned 30, reports the Daily Mirror.

Diana signed the document on June 1, 1993, and it was later amended in 1996.

Diana wanted the majority of her estate to be placed in a trust for her sons to access when they turned 25.

However, Diana’s mother and sister were allowed by the court to change certain aspects following her death.

Instead, it was changed so the princes would access it when they turned 30.

Included in the will was her wish of what William and Harry should receive in the event of her passing.

Among the gifts was the Princess of Wales’ iconic 1981 wedding gown – which Harry was to receive on his 30th birthday.

The beautiful dress was created by designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel, and it caused a sensation when Diana wore it to marry Charles in July 1981.

The dress, which was made up of thousands of pearls, layers of silk and a 25ft train, was returned to Diana’s sons in 2014 after a world tour.

Mr Emanuel said in 2014: “That gown has earned its keep. It has been around the globe many, many times. I think more people abroad have seen it than British people.

“What’s extraordinary is, after so many years, people are still talking about it.”

Meanwhile, Prince William received her engagement ring, which he later proposed to Kate Middleton with.

The remainder of her estate was distributed amongst her 17 godchildren, and she left £50,000 to her butler Paul Burrell.
