The two 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 Thursday. The new awards were given to 20 people who have honored her legacy “through her belief in the power of young people.”
William and Harry met the winners, which include 16-year-old Jemima Browning, who helps young people with disabilities through her swimming club, and 18-year-old Maya Ghazal, who is from Syria and is a spokesperson for refugees and migrants in the U.K.
“We are so glad our mother’s name is being put to good use through The Diana Award,” William said.
Like Diana, William and Harry are known for their philanthropy and are patrons of many charities.
Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997. She was 36. William and Harry were 15 and 12 at the time.
It was announced in January that a statue of the princess is set to be erected on the grounds of Kensington Palace, at the request of her sons.
“Our mother touched so many lives,” they said in a statement at the time. “We hope the statue will help all those who visit when it will be unveiled. It is hoped that this will occur before the end of 2017.”

It’s the end of an era for Bobby Moynihan and Saturday Night Live. The longtime not ready for primetime player is, well, going primetime with his new CBS comedy Me, Myself and I and leaving the NBC sketch comedy.
Moynihan has been with Saturday Night Live for nine seasons, he joined the cast in 2008. When E! News spoke with Moynihan at the 2017 CBS Upfronts, he said the question about him leaving Saturday Night Live makes him “so scared.”
“We’ll see. My life’s dream was to be on that show and I don’t ever want to leave, but the show did get picked up so we’ll see,” he said with a laugh.
“It was the best,” he said about his time on Saturday Night Live. “That’s all I wanted to do.”
No word on if or how SNL will mark his exit from the show.
Me, Myself and I follows Alex, an inventor, through three different time periods of his life. You’ll see Alex as a 14-year-old in 1991, played by Jack Dylan Grazer, as a 40-year-old in present day, played by Moynihan, and as a 65-year-old in 2042, played by John Larroquette.
The cast also includes Brian Unger, Jaleel White, Kelen Coleman, Skylar Gray, Christopher Paul Richards, Mandell Maughan, Reylynn Caster and Sharon Lawrence.
“Bobby is a star, I don’t have to give him any advice,” Larroquette told E! News about his costar at the center of the series.
Producers on the show are Dan Kopelman, Aaron Kaplan, Dana Honor and Randall Einhorn.
Me, Myself and I will premiere on Mondays in the fall at 9:30 before shifting to its regular slot at 9 after football ends on CBS on Monday, Oct. 30.
