A memorial garden in London commemorating the life of Diana, Princess of Wales is being developed to mark the 20th anniversary of her death.

Historic Royal Palaces, which is responsible for overseeing the plans, has advertised for a new gardener to help with the project.

The garden, which is in the “very early stages of development”, will become the fourth memorial in London, joining Diana Memorial Playground at Kensington Palace, the Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park, and the Diana Memorial Walk at St James's Palace.

The Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park is one of three London memorials to the Princess Credit: PA

Diana died in a car accident in Paris with her partner Dodi Fayed on August 31 1997.

A spokesman for Kensington Palace said the plans were being explored by palace officials and management at the charity Historic Royal Palaces.

Diana’s sons, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, are being kept “informed” about the project, he added.

Our plans are still at the earliest stages of development, and we're recruiting for staff to help us explore the possibilities
