Princess Kate - Kate Middleton Waxwork Planned

The London Eye, Tower of London, Big Ben these are just some of the usual tourist hot-spots for a day trip to London but, more often than not, Madame Tussauds features high on the list, particularly with younger generations. Well Madame Tussauds has recently announced that they will soon be adding a new statue to their royal collection and that statue will be in the form of Kate Middleton.

Preparation for the waxwork will begin shortly but it seems it will not be ready for public unveiling until quite later in the year. Tussauds waxworks generally take four months to create, and one would expect extra attention to detail will be taken for the statue of the princess-to-be.

A Madame Tussauds spokeswoman revealed the process for creating Kate’s waxwork saying: "It depends on what she wants and whether she can donate clothing". She continued that: "I imagine the sculptors will probably go to her and the sitting normally takes a couple of hours". Tussauds intend to have Kate visit for her sitting before the Royal Wedding on 29 April.

Madame Tussauds opened in 1835 and was originally known as the “Baker Street Bazaar”, before moving to its current location in Marylebone Road in 1884. The tourist attraction is home to life-size waxworks of all manner of celebrities and public figures including stars from screen, pop music, sport, fashion, world leaders and of course the Royal Family. Madame Tussauds already hosts Royals in wax including The Queen, Prince Phillip, Princes William and Harry. Let’s hope the Princess in the making proves as much as a hit as the real-life one.
