At least if you're in New York City and aren't allergic to wax. To mark the upcoming one year anniversary of their marriage, Madame Tussauds New York has unveiled the royal couple's wax figures.
This isn't a cheap imitation of them either! According to a Tussauds spokesperson, both William and Kate have been actively involved in the $200,000 (each) preparation of their likenesses. In a statement announcing the unveiling, the wax company wrote:
"Madame Tussauds enjoys a close relationship with the British Royal Family dating back to William IVth who was Monarch when the first attraction opened in London in 1835. The current Queen has been modeled by the attraction over 20 times and has given the studio team six personal sittings over the years. Their Highnesses have been closely involved and kept informed at every stage of the process."
We think these creations are some of the most marvelous wax figures to date too! Kate looks lovely in an exact copy of the Alexander McQueen gown she wore to the BAFTA Brits to Watch Awards, while William looks as handsome as ever in a Gieves & Hawkes two-piece tuxedo.
Will U be stopping by Madame Tussauds New York to pose with the royals?
