Prince William and Prince Harry after Lady Diana's funeral

Britain's Prince Harry, center right, and Prince William pose for photographers with the award winners during a ceremony for The Diana Award's inaugural Legacy Award, at St James' Palace in London, Thursday, May 18, 201.

Each year they present the Diana Award to young people in honour of their mother, and this year they've paid a special tribute to her hard work. The Inaugural Legacy Award honored the legacy of their mother through her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better.

Aged between eleven and their late-teens, the 20 winners of the Legacy Award came from countries around the world including the US, India, Belize and the United Arab Emirates.

"But in one sense Harry and I feel that our mother lives on in the countless acts of compassion and bravery that she inspires in others", he added.

To mark the occasion Prince William took to the podium to reflect on his mother's own legacy, remarking that this year will be the 20th since her death.

"She is one of the most selfless figures I have seen - and I can see the genuine soul that she had and the giving nature that she had".

The Legacy Awards are created to celebrate children and teenagers who demonstrate qualities of kindness, compassion and service.

"I was humbled by reading the extraordinary achievements of every young person who was nominated for this award", Samuel said in a statement.

As the 20th anniversary of her death approaches, we've been hearing the boys talk more and more about Princess Diana and her awesome work.

"One of the things our mother taught William and I was the value of doing good when no one is watching", he said. "This result was tremendous".

As well as winning The Legacy Award, recipients will have access to a unique development programme which will provide them with the opportunity to enhance their skills in four areas - leadership, community development, social entrepreneurship and technology for good. "It left me feeling profoundly hopeful for our future knowing these young people will be part of that future and our future leaders".
