Harry and Meghan’s wax figures turn heads in Windsor

Madame Tusssaud’s made the figures which were shown outside Windsor Castle and Eton Bridge.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wax figures stopped traffic in Windsor on Wednesday afternoon during their first public unveiling before Saturday’s royal wedding.

Made by Madame Tussaud’s, the famous duo’s life-like figures were revealed to surprised passers-by outside Windsor Castle and Eton Bridge.

Prince Harry’s figure, which was originally created to mark his 30th birthday in 2014, has been updated for the special occasion.

Work on Ms Markle’s figure began when the couple announced their engagement in November 2017 and it includes the same dress she wore during their first TV interview.

Her engagement ring, designed by her husband to be, even includes a power supply to make it sparkle.

Waving union jacks and posing for selfies with the figures, locals and tourists enjoyed the surprise unveiling.

One of them, 55-year-old Jane from Eton, said: “The hype for the royal wedding has been absolutely wonderful. It’s very exciting. We will be there on Saturday!

“And the wax figures are amazing. They are very life-like.”

Diane, 53, from Minnesota, whose holiday to the UK happened to coincide with the royal wedding, said: “The wax figures are brilliant. They look perfect – look at her shoes! Her skin really does look like real skin.

“We are all very excited!”

The figures will be officially unveiled on Saturday at Madame Tussaud’s in London.

Neither Prince Harry nor Ms Markle had a sitting for the figures.
