British Royals

Royal waxworks are unveiled at Madame Tussauds in new balcony scene

It may be famous for its pop and reality star waxworks, but now the popular London attraction has revamped their royals!

Madame Tussauds has unveiled a new backdrop for the famous wax faces which sees The Queen, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Phillip, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William now proudly displayed on the royal balcony.

While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are yet to feature in the new scene, plans are in the pipeline to have completed Meghan’s waxwork and add them to the royal line-up in time for their wedding on May 19th.

And the wax figures were given all the attention they deserved in the form of a slightly different kind of royalty when Queen of the ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ jungle, Georgia Toffolo declared the new attraction officially open.

Reported in the Daily Mail, it would seem Georgia, also known as Toff, was quite excited to have been invited along to the event saying “I may have been the Queen of the Jungle for a few months now, but I haven’t been invited to Buckingham Palace. Madame Tussauds London is definitely the next best thing – I’ve loved taking my place alongside the rest of the family on the Royal Balcony.”

“The whole experience has made me feel like a true royal, and I can’t get over the likeness,” she continued.

While the figures look perfectly genuine, their new location also adds to the royal realism with the waxy famous faces all stood grandly on a model of the royal balcony at Buckingham Palace.

Over the years the famous balcony has played host to some of the most iconic royal moments in history, including Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s post-wedding kiss in 2011 and George V’s appearance on the eve of World War One.

The royal figures are all dressed in attire that reflects their real-life fashion choices. The Duchess of Cambridge can be seen in an elegant soft lilac dress and hat by Jane Corbett while the Duchess of Cornwall is modelling a beautiful pale blue skirt suit by Philip Treacy.

And not wanting to be up-staged, The Queen’s wax figure stands out in a pop of colour, wearing a bright yellow skirt suit.

So while the current wax attendees on the royal balcony may be set to draw in a lot of attention from visitors to Madame Tussauds, the question is when will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle be completing the royal line-up?

Watch this space, it might not be long!
