Pharrell Williams In Negotiation To Perform At Princess Diana Tribute

Rapper Pharrell

Williams is in negotiations to take part in a massive concert to commemorate the

10th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana. The

charity concert is being planned by Princes William and Harry, and will take place

at the new Wembley Stadium on July 1, Princess Diana’s 46th birthday, various

London newspapers reported today (Nov. 26). Artists

like Madonna, Beyonce, The Killers, Kylie Minogue, George Michael and Elton John

are also being considered by the Princes, who are handpicking each act. Over

90,000 fans will gather for the concert at the new Wembley Stadium, which is due

to open in May of 2007. The concert will also be broadcast to fans worldwide.

Prince

Charles married Princess Diana in 1981. She became world famous for her charity

work and her rocky marriage to Prince Charles, the father of Prince William, 24

and Prince Harry, 22. The

royal marriage came to an end in 1992 and finally divorce, in 1996. In

August of 1997, Princess Diana was killed in a mysterious car crash along with

her billionaire boyfriend Dodi Fayed and his chauffeur. Rumors

of a collaboration between Pharrell and Prince William began to surface in July,

when the pair met during The Audi Polo charity tournament. Williams

hinted that his collaboration with Prince William could for a charitable cause.

"I

spoke to William before he played polo," Williams told reporters in July.

"We spoke about doing something. I can’t say what it is, except it’s going

to be big."
