William and Kate waxworks unveiled at Madame Tussauds
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.
