Meghan Markle wax statue joins Prince Harry's at Madame Tussaud's ahead of royal wedding
Ever since Meghan Markle declared her engagement to Prince Harry, people have been wondering what it would be like to be up-close-and-personal with the royal bride to be. Well, the wait is over now, since Madame Tussaud's has unveiled Meghan Markle's first wax statue, days ahead of the royal wedding which is set to take place on May 19.
The famous London museum gave an idea of how it feels to get a closer look at the former actress to all the royal admirers on Wednesday when they debuted a wax figure of the former Suits star. And unsurprisingly, the statue is placed right next to a replica of Markle's fiancee, Prince Harry.
The wax figurine of Markle is donned in her famous green engagement dress from P.A.R.O.S.H., which she wore for her TV interview with Prince Harry after the engagement. There is even a replica of her diamond engagement ring, which can be spotted on the figure's left hand.
In order to not make Prince Harry's statue feel left out since it was unveiled in 2014 to mark his 30th birthday, the old replica has been spruced up for his future bride's satisfaction, and museum executives have also added a beard to his face.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren't the only royals who have a permanent house at the famous London museum. Madame Tussaud's also has statues of other members of the royal family, like Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla.
Although Markle's statue has not made its official public debut yet, admirers can certainly get a sneak peak on May 18, before it officially opens to the public on May 19, A.K.A the day of the royal wedding.
The museum is reportedly hosting a hen and stag party a day before the nuptials, complete with a bar and live DJ, and tourists will be allowed to take pictures with the statues against an array of backgrounds, including scenarios like Prince Harry and his future bride cutting their wedding cake, going on a beach vacation, etc.
According to reports, the museum will dress up Prince Harry and Markle's statues in complete wedding attire on the day of the royal wedding, all the while streaming the wedding live for spectators at the tourist attraction to watch.
The best part? If anyone with the name Harry or Meghan visits the museum, they'll get free entry to Madame Tussauds on the day.
But if you're worried that you won't really be able to make it to London for neither the statue nor the royal wedding, fear not. Madame Tussaud's sister location in New York is all set to unveil its own statue commemorating the future royal on May 9.
