(NEW YORK) — Charles Spencer is remembering his sister, the late Princess Diana, 26 years after her death.

In a post on X, Spencer shared a photo of him and Diana when they were young kids.

The photo shows a young Diana in a pink striped dress with her arm wrapped around a young Charles, who is wearing blue shorts and matching collared shirt.

Diana, the Princess of Wales, died in a car crash on Aug. 31, 1997, at the age of 36, while fleeing the paparazzi in Paris. Her death prompted worldwide mourning and messages of condolences from leaders across the globe.

The late princess was the mother of Prince William, the Prince of Wales, and Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

William, who is married to Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, is now the father of three children: Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5. Harry is married to Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, and the couple are parents to Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2.

On the 25th anniversary of her death last year, Harry said during a charity event in Aspen, Colorado, that he wanted others to remember his mom for “her incredible work and love.”

“I want it to be a day to share the spirit of my mum with my family, with my children, who I wish could have met her,” he said at the time. “Every day, I hope to do her proud.”
