Kate Middleton and Prince William have been immortalised in wax
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been immortalised in wax – and fantastic they look, too.
Kate Middleton and Prince William’s six waxworks have been unveiled at the Madame Tussauds in London, Amsterdam and New York.
The doppelgangers each cost £150,000, meaning that the whole process, which took four months, has cost nearly £1 million.
Kate’s London waxwork is wearing a replica of the blue Issa dress she wore to announce her engagement to Prince William, and the Issa design team actually helped to recreate the look.
The two statues have taken pride of place in Madame Tussauds and tower over Princess Diana and Prince Harry.
In New York, the Kate waxwork will be dressed in the Alexander McQueen lilac dress she wore to the BAFTA’s ‘Brits to Watch’ gala in Los Angeles.
And in Amsterdam, Kate wears the gown she wore for the premiere of War Horse, a black lace number created by Alice Temperley.
Tussauds spokesperson Liz Edwards said: ‘The Queen is the most popular attraction but since the royal wedding fever we’ve had people coming in to see William when he was without Catherine.
‘Catherine has her own star quality so we are expecting a lot of people to come, especially with the Easter weekend coming.’
