Charles Spencer Will Hold Special Ceremony for Diana Award Honorees at Late Royal's Childhood Home
Earlier this week, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex met with recipients of The Diana Award’s Legacy Award, which is a prestigious accolade that’s handed out every two years to people whose social action and humanitarian work deserve recognition. (It’s important to note that the older brother met with half of the winners at Kensington Palace, while Harry joined the other half via Zoom.)
And now, it has been revealed that the 9th Earl Spencer will host a ceremony for the honorees at Diana’s childhood home, Althorp House, on December 9. Yep—that’s tomorrow. The event will welcome all 20 recipients who are from across the U.K., U.S., Taiwan, Colombia, Germany, India and Indonesia. In addition to the ceremony, the recipients will also gain access to a two-year development program to help them continue their philanthropic efforts.
“I've always been delighted that my sister's name has been the catalyst behind the brilliant Diana Award, and to have the Legacy Award Ceremony at our family home seems not only very fitting but also rather wonderful,” Spencer said, per People. “I chaired the selection of the winners, so I’m aware how truly admirable their achievements are. This will be a celebration of these exceptional young people, but also, of course, of Diana herself."
We love to see the whole family coming together to honor Diana for a great cause.
