Princess Diana's belongings are going on display at Buckingham Palace

Numerous personal belongings on display have been chosen by her sons Princes William and Harry.

William and Harry attended a private service earlier this month to re-dedicate her grave and the brothers have also commissioned a statue to be erected in her honor outside their official London home.

The desk used by Princess Diana in Kensington Palace is displayed at the "Royal Gifts" exhibition at this year's summer opening of the state rooms at Buckingham Palace.

The exhibition - which runs until October 1, 2017 - coincides with the summer opening of Buckingham Palace.

Dancing on the Ceiling by Lionel Richie, Verdi's Il Trovatore (featuring her signature - perhaps to ward off anyone taking it!) and Carreras, Domingo and Pavarotti are kept in a case full of old cassette tapes that Prince William and Prince Harry have added to a display at Buckingham Palace.

Diana, whom many people referred to as "The People's Princess", died August 31, 1997 from a vehicle crash in Paris.

The selection is part of a larger exhibition - entitled Royal Gifts - which features items gifted to Queen Elizabeth II during her 65-year reign. William and Harry were just 15 and 12, respectively, at the time of their mother's death.

Other items in the exhibit include Diana's ballet shoes, a wooden trunk she took to boarding school, and her writing desk, decorated with photos of her sons and a silver Cartier calendar that was a gift from former President Ronald Reagan. CNN reports that in 2016 more than half a million visitors passed through the royal residence.
