Published

Ah, wax sculptures. Some end up looking spot on, while others look a little… off (we’re looking at you, Wax-Beyoncé). Well, Madame Tussauds London gave the British royal family another reason to celebrate because they unveiled the new Meghan Markle waxwork and it is… pretty good, actually!

The Real Meghan

Meghan Markle is the American actress-turned-duchess who married Prince Harry on May 19, 2018. She starred on the television show Suits, and also appeared in CastleFringeCSI: Miami, and more. She started dating Prince Harry in 2016 and due to her charm, beauty, and style, she has been a media darling ever since.

Town & Country

Rest assured, the duchess won’t be living out her days resting on her laurels. She is involved with a number of charities and takes on issues such as gender equality, modern-day slavery, clean drinking water, and more.

The Sculpture

Markle’s sculpture now stands next to her husband’s. Harry’s sculpture has been updated to include his beard. Wax-Meghan is wearing the P.A.R.O.S.H. which became a hot commodity when she wore it the day her engagement to Harry was announced in November 2017.

OK! Magazine

It’s hard to find fault with the waxwork. It looks very lifelike and even features a replica of her stunning engagement ring. Madame Tussauds did a fantastic job. The hair, smile, and even freckles are all perfect copies to those of the newest member of the royal family.

In-Person Viewings

If you would like to get up close and personal to the statue, Madame Tussauds London opened it to the public on May 19. As a bonus, those named Meghan or Harry get in for free!

The waxen newlyweds stand in front of a 15-foot-wide video screen. This allows guests to select the background to use when they are photographed with the waxworks. Tickets are available online at Madame Tussauds’ website.

Did You Ever Notice These Actors Were Replaced On Your Favorite Shows?

The thing about television shows—especially long-running ones—is that they’re on the air for years at a time. Actors grow and develop, seek new opportunities and, as it relates to the younger among them, go off to college. It’s a perfectly natural thing that directors and producers regularly have to deal with, often through recasts and plot twists. One actor’s decision to quit a show can send shockwaves through a script, and fans are always along for the ride. Other times, minor characters are replaced and certain viewers might not even notice. Here are the television actors who were replaced like it was nothing—some of them are sure to surprise you.
