Now, more than a year after their wax figures at Madame Tussauds in London were moved from the royal family’s section, Harry and Markle are now on display in a “Hollywood” area of the tourist attraction.
In a statement to Reuters, a representative for the wax museum said the waxworks of Harry and Markle were moved on Thursday to mimic their move from Frogmore Cottage — their residence in the UK — to California.
“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,” the wax museum’s statement said.
Harry and Markle’s wax figures are displayed in front of glittery marquee lights.
The wax figures are also styled to look like outfits the couple wore for their last engagement in the UK as working royals in March 2020. They arrived at Endeavour Fund Awards in London sharing an umbrella amid a rainy backdrop, and it made for a now-viral snapshot captured by photographer Samir Hussein.
The couple’s wax statues were previously displayed by the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince William, and Kate Middleton.
In January 2020, after Harry and Markle announced in an Instagram post that they were taking a step back from their official roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Madame Tussauds removed the couple’s figures from the royal family’s section.
Madame Tussauds unveiled Markle and Harry’s waxworks before their royal wedding in May 2018.
The museum at one point split up Markle and Harry’s figures — placing Markle by other celebrities, and Harry with the royal family, according to The Independent.
Now living in Santa Barbara, California, the duke and duchess are expecting their second child — a baby girl — in the summer. Markle also wrote her first children’s book, “The Bench,” which goes on sale in the US on June 8. Illustrated by Christian Robinson, the book explores the bond between a father and a son through the eyes of a mother.
Markle said in a press release from Random House Children’s Books that she was inspired to write the book because of Harry’s relationship with their son, Archie, who turned 2 earlier in May.
