Kate and Wills in Wax

Madame Tussauds revealed one of four waxworks of William and Catherine in London this morning – with the Duchess dressed in exact replicas of some of her most famous fashion moments.

Each of the four figures is portrayed in a different outfit linked to a memorable Royal event. The London pair feature Kate and William announcing their engagement, with Kate wearing a replica of the blue Issa dress.

In Amsterdam, the Kate waxwork is dressed in the black Alice Temperley gown she wore to the War Horse premiere on the eve of her 30th birthday.

The other two Kate waxworks, in Madame Tussauds in New York and Blackpool, will be dressed in Alexander McQueen (the purple dress she wore to the BAFTA Brits To Watch event) and Jenny Packham from her appearance at the ARK Charity Dinner.

Far more realistic than some other celebrity waxworks we’ve seen, the couple were closely informed of work on the figures at every stage of creation, and join a long line of Royal figures (180 years-worth) who have been immortalized in wax. Each figure took four months and cost £150,000 to make – a sum we’re sure Tussauds will make back in the tourists who flock to see the figures at each respective museum.
