Madame Tussauds moves Prince Harry, Meghan's wax figures away

A day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced to step out as senior members from the family, Madame Tussauds wax museum removed the figures of the prince and his wife, on Thursday (January 10).

In response to the couple’s announcement, taking it to twitter, the museum tweeted, “We have got to respect their wishes.” The wax statues of the Duchess of Sussex which previously was kept alongside Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Prince William and Kate Middleton, will no longer kept in the Royal Family set, CNN reported the museum as saying.

According to a statement, Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said, “Alongside the rest of the world, we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior royals.”

“From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set. As two of our most popular and well-loved figures, they will, of course, remain an important feature at Madame Tussauds London as we watch to see what the next chapter holds for them,” Davies added.

Earlier this week, the couple said they want to “carve out a progressive new role” within the royal family and will “step back as ‘senior’ members, and work to become financially independent.”

Meghan’s wax figure was unveiled before the royal wedding in May 2018 and was positioned alongside Prince Harry in a room dedicated to celebrating their partnership.
