WRITTEN BY

Britain's princes William and Harry have planned an ambitious concert bash to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. The concert, to be held July 1, will be a charity event supporting the many causes Diana was devoted to before her untimely death as a result of a car crash in 1997. It will be among the first concerts to be held in the new 1.5 billion dollar Wembley Stadium, which is still being built, and will host nearly 90,000 fans. Though no acts have been confirmed, word has it that Madonna, Beyonce, Pharrell, and the Killers are being courted to perform, as well as shoe-ins Elton John and George Michael. All the artists will be chosen by William and Harry, with regard to their mother's taste, of course. An official announcement is expected next month.
