Madame Tussauds soups up Kate Middleton, Prince William Wax Figures

Madame Tussauds, the waxworks museum in London, has quite a story behind it. It is said that the original creator of the long list of famous artificial figures got her ideas for framing faces from the chopped heads that fell from the guillotines of the French Revolution.

Whatever the truth behind that grisly anecdote, nowadays almost all the really important people of the world have been included in the wax museum where people come to see the figures and have their photographs taken along with them. 

The figures of Prince William and Kate Middleton had been placed among the pantheon of the rich and famous two years ago. Yet it had fallen into dilapidation and was a bit passé. The reason was that the ensembles both wax figures wore were outdated and belonged to the time of their wedding ceremony.   

Well, the heads of the museum decided to take some steps to remedy the situation. They revamped and refurbished the waxen, life-sized statues with new clothes more suitable to today’s ultramodern times. 

Kate Middleton glows in an aquamarine gown and is shown holding a purse. Meanwhile, Prince William looks smart and suave in a black tuxedo. He also has a bow tie that makes him appear to be a thorough gentleman. 

The pair is currently situated in the royal area of the museum along with other monarchical figures such as William’s brother, Prince Harry, the Queen and the Prince of Wales. 

Matthew Clarkson, the marketing manager of Madame Tussauds London, said, "The Royal Family have always been the highlight of a visit for many guests to Madame Tussauds London.

"And the young royal couple have been particularly popular since their launch two years ago. After two years in the attraction, it seemed the perfect time to give them a glamorous makeover." 

The time was ripe to give the two a makeover and so the deed was done. The various workers for the museum got to work combing the wax figures’ hair and retouching their visages for the public.

Much of the public comes for the sake of watching the royal family in the vicarious form of the life-like models on display.

They are not disappointed by what they get to see since the figures are so realistic that standing next to them you cannot tell whether they are fake or actual in their existence.
