Meghan Markle's Wax Figure Has Been Unveiled—Here's the Verdict
It's here: Meghan Markle’s long-awaited Madame Tussauds wax figure has finally been unveiled.
Honestly, we’ve been pretty worried since the museum announced a replica of the royal bride-to-be would be added to its London location. Celebrity wax figures have a tendency to be either spot-on or completely off—remember whitewashed Beyoncé?
That being said, we were happily surprised by the accuracy of the Suits star’s rendering. No, really, it’s like, scary accurate.
Markle, in a deep green shift dress and beige pumps (which are more of a Kate Middelton staple, tbh) as well as a replica of her bling-y engagement ring, and Harry in a navy suit and tie, pose together in front of a massive LED screen that flashes between a tropical beach scene and a sappy image of their initials surrounded by falling rose petals—a move straight out of the Bachelor franchise playbook, if you ask us. The only possible error we can see is that Meghan isn’t clinging to her fiancé’s arm or hand, which she typically does in public settings.
While you may assume the museum’s London branch would give the utmost attention and precision to the future royal’s wax figure, this 2014 rendering of Duchess Kate Middleton may change your mind:
Praise be, Madame Tussauds—Meghan’s debut earns an “A” in our book.
