A sobering visit for William and Kate

Prince William took time out from wedding planning this week to visit the grave of his mother, Princess Diana, on Oval Island at Althorp Estate. The future king and his bride-to-be kept the special trip to her island tomb a secret from everyone except Diana's brother Charles Spencer. They reportedly laid flowers and wandered the grounds hand-in-hand.
