The Princes spent time listening to the stories of Josh and the other young people in the lead up to the awards which were presented in honour of their mother, the late Princess of Wales.

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. "From helping to shatter the stigma around AIDS, to fighting to ban landmines and supporting the homeless-she touched the lives of millions", William said.

William, 34, noted the young age at which Diana died in a Paris auto crash in 1997, saying, "The truth is, though, that she was taken at only 36, just slightly older than I am today".

Harry highlighted how his mother, who worked tirelessly on behalf of charities around the world, taught him the "value of doing good when no one is watching".
