Everyone from vampish pop stars to heroic sporting legends have been immortalized in wax courtesy of the world famous Madame Tussauds museum and British royalty are no exception, so it’s about time that Britain’s most famous royal couple joined the ranks.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (that’s Will and Kate to us common folk) arrived at Madame Tussauds this April in celebration of their first wedding anniversary and joined replicas of the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, among others.
Britain’s most beloved royal spouse, Princess Catherine, will be making her entrance in four different dresses, each one debuting in a different location around the world. New York, Amsterdam and Blackpool will each showcase a different outfit, with London’s flagship museum set to unveil the now legendary blue Issa London dress worn to their engagement announcement alongside a replica of the sapphire and diamond engagement ring once worn by the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
The figures, each costing around £150,000 to create, are set to debut on April 4th in London, completing the royal family waxworks just in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in June. A snapshot with the royal duo’s wax counterparts should sit nicely alongside those wedding memorabilia plates and Will and Kate Barbie dolls.
Madame Tussauds is open every day and charges a £30 entry fee for adults.
