In her will, the late princess left precious items to her sons – which Harry will inherit on his upcoming birthday

On September 15 Prince Harry will turn 30, a milestone that will be marked with some extra special gifts left to him by his late mother. Harry and his brother William will inherit the wedding dress that was worn by their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales as well as several other personal items.

Personal letters, photographs and jewels that once belonged to their mother will also be given to the Princes – including the score and lyrics to Elton John's adapted version of Candle in the Wind, which was performed at their late mother's funeral.

Prince Harry will ­reportedly also inherit ­£10 million of Diana's ­fortune on his birthday –which his brother William also received on his 30th in 2012.

No formal announcement has been given about where the iconic wedding dress will be stored or displayed – but it has been suggested that it may find its home at Kensington Palace following several world tours.
