William, Harry Announce Concert For Diana

Princes William and Harry said Tuesday that they are planning a pop concert and memorial service next year to mark the 46th birthday of their mother, Princess Diana, and the tenth anniversary of her death.

The concert is to feature some of Diana's favorite music and will be "full of energy, full of the sort of fun and happiness which I know she would have wanted," William said in an interview with his father's press secretary, Patrick Harrison, which was released to the media.

The band Duran Duran will perform along with Elton John, who sang "Candle In The Wind" at Diana's funeral. The concert will also include a performance by the English National Ballet and songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber in honor of the princess' love of dancing and theater.

The concert is planned for July 1, Diana's 46th birthday, at Wembley Stadium in London.

A memorial service is also planned at an undisclosed location in London on Aug. 31, 10 years after the princess' fatal car crash in a Paris tunnel.

CBS News correspondent Richard Roth says the presence at the memorial service of both sides of the family — royalty and non—royalty — is a significant symbol of royal reconciliation. The Queen's family was not always on the best of terms with the Princess.

Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, the princes' stepmother, Camilla, and Princess Diana's siblings plan to attend the memorial service.

Each of her sons is involved in charities Diana supported or causes they believe she would have endorsed, says Roth.

The concert is intended to raise funds for the work they're doing and for a memorial fund set up after their mother's death.

Diana died along with her friend Dodi Fayed and their driver when their Mercedes crashed inside the Pont d'Alma tunnel as media photographers pursued them.

An official British report into the crash has concluded that a U.S. intelligence agency was bugging Diana's phone without the approval of its British counterpart on the night of her death, according to British newspaper reports.

However, a U.S. intelligence official tells CBS News national security correspondent David Martin that the National Security Agency is working on a statement that will deny eavesdropping on Princess Diana.
