Meghan Markle’s Madame Tussauds waxwork has finally been unveiled, 10 days before she’s set to marry Prince Harry.
The figure sees Markle wearing the green Parosh dress that she wore for her engagement interview, standing alongside a restyled version of the Prince Harry waxwork. She also sports an exact replica of her diamond engagement ring.
Harry’s effigy was originally unveiled in the museum in 2014 to celebrate his 30th birthday; the update has most notably seen the addition of his beard.
“Excitement ahead of the royal wedding is reaching fever pitch and we have been inundated with questions about when people can finally meet ‘Their Royal Likenesses’,” said Edward Fuller, general manager at Madame Tussauds London. “There is a lot of love out there for Meghan and Harry and we’re following their lead by inviting the great British public to join the couple in their wedding celebrations here at Madame Tussauds London.”
The Meghan and Harry waxworks will be stationed in front of a video wall, allowing visitors to choose how they ‘hang out’ with them from selection of backdrops – from the cutting of the cake at their wedding, to relaxing on a beach. Your first chance to see them in the faux flesh will be on the evening of the royal wedding (Friday 18 May), when the museum will be hosting a stag- and hen-do party for over 18s.
‘Excitement for the royal couple’s wedding reaches across the globe so it will come as no surprise that we’ve been secretly working away on a Meghan Markle figure since news of the royal engagement broke,’ said Madame Tussauds London’s general manager Edward Fuller in March.
‘It’s clear that the public has already taken Meghan to their hearts. One half of arguably the most famous couple in the world right now she’s already made her own mark as a humanitarian and role model,’ Fuller continued. ‘We’re excited to give guests the chance to ‘meet’ her in attraction later this year.’
Another Meghan Markle waxwork will be installed in New York’s Madame Tussauds, celebrating the first time a US citizen will join the British royal family in 80 years.
