LONDON -- Princes William and Harry have chosen the BBC to be the U.K. broadcast partner for the official Concert for Diana, to celebrate what would have been the Princess' 46th birthday next July.

The concert, which will be part of a series of events to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Diana's death, will be broadcast live on BBC1 and BBC Radio 2 as well as online, the BBC said.

"This is a key event for the British public this summer, and I am delighted that we have been asked to broadcast it into the nation's living rooms," BBC1 controller Peter Fincham said.

The concert will feature talent including Elton John, Duran Duran and Joss Stone.

A spokeswoman for the Princes said that the international broadcast partners have "yet to be decided."
