In Britain, Princes William and Harry used a concert to celebrate the life of their mother, Princess Diana, on what would have been her 46th birthday. More than 60,000 people attended the benefit at Wembley Stadium, where Elton John was one of 24 performers.

Proceeds from the London event are to go to charities supported by Diana, who died in a car crash in 1997.
