Waxwork Will and Kate

Apr 2012

New waxworks models of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London, New York and Amsterdam.

In time to coincide with William and Catherine’s first wedding anniversary on 29 April 2012, Madame Tussauds has unveiled waxworks models of the Royal Couple across the world.

On Wednesday 4 April 2012, the world-famous museum unveiled the stunning wax figures in London, followed shortly by similar unveilings in New York and Amsterdam.

In the London museum, the waxwork figures, which are incredibly life-like, show The Duke and Duchess wearing the outfits they wore to announce their engagement in November 2010 – William in a smart suit, clasping his hand in front of him, and Kate in a copy of the now famous, blue Issa dress with her hair long and flowing.

While in Times Square, New York, the waxwork figures show The Duke and Duchess dressed in elegant evening wear, replicating outfits they wore during their Royal Tour to Canada and the USA in the summer of 2011.

In Amsterdam the waxwork Will and Kate are also dressed in evening wear, this time in the outfits the Royal Couple wore to the War Horse premiere event on the eve of Kate’s 30th birthday in January 2012.

It is estimated that the figures cost £150,000 each and took a team of artists four months to create.
