New Meghan Markle waxwork is revealed by Madame Tussauds
Madame Tussauds in London has revealed its new waxwork of royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle named 'Her Royal Likeness'. Photos of the American actress' figurine have been released, showing her standing next to a waxwork of fiancé Prince Harry, which was updated for the occasion, after being initially produced for his 30th birthday in 2014.
The figure of the Suits star is thought to be the world's first wax model of Markle and sees her clothed in an elegant green dress, a replica of the $600 PAROSH gown worn when she and Harry announced their engagement last November.
Fans of the royal couple will be able to visit both models at an exhibit which opens on May 19, the day of the royal nuptials. In addition, the attraction has reportedly claimed it will offer free entry to people named Meghan or Harry on the day of the wedding.
Edward Fuller, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, spoke about the new model, stating that it was representative of the hype surrounding both the couple and their marriage.
"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,'" he said.
He continued: "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 popular tourist attraction, found in England's capital, is also holding a "stag and hen do" before the wedding, where over-18s have the chance to take photographs with the two waxwork figures. Waxworks of the rest of the Royal Family will also be on display on the new "Royal Balcony".
Madame Tussauds in New York also revealed its own Meghan Markle figure on Thursday, named the "American Princess".
The second figure, which has gone on display at the Times Square location, sports a replica of the lace and crepe midi-dress she wore last December for the Queen's pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.
Both the UK and US waxworks also have a replica of her diamond engagement ring, designed for her by Harry.
