Prince William and Prince Harry presented the first Legacy Awards at a ceremony for the Diana Award youth charity, the only non-profit organization established in the princess’ name, at St. James Palace . The new awards were given to 20 people who have honored her legacy “through her belief in the power of young people.”
The winners of the inaugural Legacy Award from the Diana Award charity were recognized for their contributions and acts of goodwill. The winners were described as exemplifying the Princess of Wales’ commitment to kindness, compassion and service. The 20 Diana Legacy Award winners were selected by an independent judging panel after nominations were submitted.
“We are so glad our mother’s name is being put to good use through The Diana Award,” William said. The Diana Award charity encourages young people to follow the example of Princess Diana, fostering, inspiring and developing positive change through social action.
