William and Kate were the latest additions to the legendary hall of fame at Madame Tussauds.

Waxworks of the couple were unveiled this morning (Wednesday, April 4) at the museum in Marylebone Road.

The statues are replicas of the couple on their engagement day – an image that was seen by millions of people around the world.

The Duchess of Cambridge is wearing an exact copy of her blue engagement dress and a replica engagement ring, while Prince William is wearing a Gieves and Hawkes suit.

Liz Edwards, PR manager for the museum, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Duke and Duchess to Madame Tussauds London.

“We know guests are going to relish the opportunity to get up close to them and join them in celebrating their first wedding anniversary later this month.”

The figures took a team of artists four months to create and cost £150,000 each.

It is the first waxwork of Kate, but the last one of Prince William was made in 2003.
