Rank-Broadley, responding to the announcement, said: "It is my sole and highest intention to fulfil the expectations of Their Royal Highnesses in creating a lasting and fitting memorial to their late mother Diana, Princess of Wales". No doubt, this has been an eventful year for the royals (William and Kate's third baby arrives in April), but the royals have found ways to honor Diana along the way-this time with a sculpture to be designed by Ian Rank-Broadley and installed in the public gardens at Kensington Palace, the palace announced via Twitter on Monday.
'We look forward to unveiling the statue, which will allow all those who visit Kensington Palace to remember and celebrate her life and legacy'. "It is expected to be unveiled in 2019".
The princes also said they've been touched by the kind words and memories shared with them about Diana this year.
Mr Rank-Broadley's most recognised work is his effigy of the monarch, which has been on all coins in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth since 1998.

"It is clear the significance of her work is still felt by many in the United Kingdom and across the world, even twenty years after her death", they said.
At the time, the picture was both praised and criticised for its realistic approach, with some claiming it made the then-70-year-old Queen appear exhausted or "grumpy".
