New Delhi: It's been 10 years since Princess Diana, the most glamorous figure in Britain died in a tragic car crash with her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed. Her sons now want people to focus on her good side.

In an interview with the BBC, Britain's Prince William and Prince Harry hoped the pop concert next month would help restore memories of good work done by her.

July 1 would have been the princess's 46th birthday. “After ten-years there's been a rumbling of sort of people bringing up the bad. Over time people seem to forget, or have forgotten just about all the amazing things she did and what an amazing person she was. We sort of felt that this was the best way of bringing that back to life and letting people remember, you know, all the good things about her," Williams told BBC.

DEEDS FORGOTTEN: 10-years ago, Princess Diana died in a tragic car crash with her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed.

Harry says Diana was a caring person who put everyone else first. But the brothers say Diana always made them feel like the most important people in her life.

The princes say they're holding the July first tribute concert in part so people will remember Diana's positive legacy. Performers at the show include Elton John, who revised his song "Candle in the Wind" in Diana's honor.

The princess died in a Paris car crash in August 1997. The day of the concert would have been her 46th birthday.
