The Sussexes

Harry and Meghan’s waxworks moved from royal section at Madame Tussauds


The waxworks of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Madame Tussauds in London have been moved from the section with the Royal Family to the Hollywood section of the museum. The museum said they moved the waxworks to reflect their move from being royal to living in Hollywood.

“Harry and Meghan have moved zones – Madame Tussauds London has moved its figures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to their brand new Awards Party zone to reflect their move from Frogmore to Hollywood,” Madame Tussauds said yesterday.

General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, Tim Waters, told The Sun: “Ever watchful of the celebrity landscape, we’ve moved Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s figures to join their Hollywood friends, reflecting their new status on the world stage as A-list favourites.”

The royal couple’s likeness will now be in the Awards Party zone alongside Hollywood stars like George Clooney – who is known to be a friend of the Sussexes.

Their waxworks were placed in Madame Tussauds ten days before their 2018 royal wedding.

The Duke and Duchess stepped back from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family last year and relocated to Meghan’s native California. They participated in a wide-ranging interview with Oprah in March where they explained their relocation and why they stepped back from royal life. They also shared that they were expecting a daughter in the summer.

The interview sent shockwaves across the UK and US when the Duchess admitted that she was suicidal while as a working member of the Royal Family and shared that a member of the family made racist remarks about her and Harry’s son, Archie and his skin tone.
