Prince William and Prince Harry commemorate what would have been their mother's 46th birthday 10 years after her tragic death "with an event to celebrate her life." Lloyd Webber, according to concert materials, will present "a set of his classic songs" with scheduled performers in his section to include Anastacia, Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, Jason Donovan, Connie Fisher, Josh Groban, Andrea Ross and Donny Osmond as well as the winner of BBC's "Any Dream Will Do" competition and forthcoming Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat star Lee Mead.

John — who reworked his song "Candle in the Wind" for the late Princess — will be on hand with a slate of pop stars that also include Lily Allen, Natasha Bedingfield, P. Diddy, Duran Duran, English National Ballet, Fergie, Bryan Ferry, The Feeling, Nelly Furtado, Roger Hodgson (of Supertramp), Tom Jones, James Morrison, Orson, Status Quo, Rod Stewart, Joss Stone, Take That, Kanye West, Wix Wickens, Pharrell Williams and Will Young.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit charities supported by the late Princess, and to charities of which the Princes are Patrons.

The six-hour concert will be viewable live on VH-1 (and via their website) July 1 starting at 11 AM (ET) as well as MTV HD and re-air on VH-1 and VH-1 Classics. (Check local listings for further airings.) Broadcast viewers can catch a one-hour version of the concert July 1 at 8 PM on NBC.
