A family memorial service to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Diana, princess of Wales is to be held in a London chapel on August 31, royal officials said Tuesday.The service will be attended by her sons, Princes William and Harry, as well asPrince Charles, from whom Diana was divorced, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, his second wife.
It will take place 10 years to the day after she died in a Paris car crash and will be held at the Guards' Chapel, the regimental place of worship for William and Harry, who are both serving in the Household Division of the British Army.
The venue was chosen ahead of two others in London with particular significance in Diana's life -- Saint Paul's Cathedral, where she married Charles, and Westminster Abbey, where her funeral was held.
About 500 people are expected to be invited, including Diana's brother, Earl Charles Spencer -- who gave a controversial speech at her funeral -- her sisters and friends.
The event is to be shown live on BBC television.
SirElton John and Duran Duran will play at a giant, sold-out pop concert being part-organised by William and Harry to mark their mother's life, at Wembley Stadium on July 1.
The long-delayed inquest into her death is due to take place in October.
