The Queen has given her grandsons, princes William and Harry, their own royal household in St James's Palace.

And the logos for their new office bring back memories of their mother Princess Diana, who was killed in a car crash on 31st August 1997, leaving millions of Britons in grief.

William and Harry set up their own offices ... with royal logos that bring back memories of Diana

Princes William and Harry have been granted their own royal household by the Queen.

The 'household' - which contrary to how it sounds is not a new home but an office and a retinue of staff members to organise their public duties and private life - has been established at St James's Palace.

And the 'cyphers', or logos, which appeared at the top of their household's first press statement last night, bare a touching resemblance to the cypher used by their late mother, Princess Diana.

Previously, William and Harry's affairs had been handled by the office of their father, Prince Charles, at Clarence House in central London.

But now the brothers will have their public, military and charitable activities organised by three main members of staff, supported by a small team.

Sir David Manning, the former British ambassador to Washington, will work as a part-time adviser to the princes.

William's cypher is red - the same color used by his father and grandmother - and consists of a "W" topped with a coronet.

Harry's cypher is similar, but has an "H" and is blue - a similar shade to that used by Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.

William, 26, is currently training as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot with the Royal Air Force. Harry, 24, is preparing to begin two-and-a-half years of training to fly British army helicopters.

Other royals with their own households include the queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, and their other children, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, and the Duke of Kent.
