The Wax Sculpture Of Meghan Markle Actually Looks Pretty Good

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.

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.

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.

Can You Believe These Celebs Are Turning 50 This Year?

It can be easy to not see celebrities as actual people. The temptation to view actors and musicians as nothing more than their forever-young movie characters, song lyrics and magazine photos is all too real. But they are people – flesh and blood humans with very real ages. And as every year passes, they grow older, just like everyone else. The difference is they age in the entertainment spotlight, where bad angles and poor lighting can’t be avoided, yet somehow they seemingly manage to remain untouched by the sands of time. We’ve compiled a list of your favorite celebrities who are turning 50 in 2019. Warning: It might be hard to believe!
