On the first of July, at the new Wembley Stadium, the Concert for Diana was staged in front of an audience of 62,000 and beamed to a worldwide TV audience of many hundreds of millions in over 140 countries. 

 The extravaganza, organised by Prince William and Prince Harry to celebrate the life of their mother on what would have been her 46th birthday proved to be a spectacular success - with the UK TV viewing figure peaking at a massive 15 million.  

The entire concert, and many extra features, is captured on a two disc DVD which will be released worldwide on November 5 by Universal Music.

The same eight charities which were named beneficiaries of the gig will also see proceeds from the DVD.

They are the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, which was founded after her death; Sentebale, the Lesotho childrens charity which Prince Harry founded in memory of his mum; and the six organisations of which the princess was Patron at the time of her death: the Royal Marsden and Great Ormond Street Hospitals, Centrepoint (of which Prince William is now Patron), The Leprosy Mission, The National AIDS Trust and English National Ballet, who also performed at the show.
