Princess Diana died on a car crash at the age of 36 on August 1997.
While Diana specified that the princes each would receive their inheritance at age 25, her executors among them Lady Sarah McCorquodale, the elder of her two sisters changed the terms of the will to rise the age to 30. However, since turning 25, William has been entitled to receive interest income from the estate.
