Harry and Meghan finally reunited with Royal Family – at Madame Tussauds

It has been announced already that the Sussexes will make their controversial return home to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in early June, but Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already been reunited with the Royal Family in a different form.

Their wax figures have re-joined the Royal Family, albeit at Madame Tussauds in London, as the UK gears up to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70-year reign.

The reunion, for a limited time only, comes as the pair are set to bring their family back to the UK for the first time since leaving for the US in 2020 in acrimonious fashion.

The Royal Family’s figures include Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, the Queen and the inbound Sussexes.

The Queen’s figure is the 23rd of 24 created of Queen Elizabeth II by Madame Tussauds London across her 70–year reign. She is dressed in a recreation of the white and silver lace dress, worn in the official Diamond Jubilee portrait photography, and covered in 53,000 Swarovski elements complete with a blue silk sash adorned by The Queen’s Garter Badge, topped off by a replica of the diamond and pearl George IV State Diadem.

Tim Waters, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “With Harry and Meghan returning to the UK to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee it felt only right that our figures come together once more on our Royal Throne Room set to join in the family festivities.

“Our much-loved Royal Family figures have also been given an elegant new look ahead of the much-anticipated celebrations, decked out in their black tie finery to mark this once in a lifetime occasion.

“At Madame Tussauds London we have a long history with The Royal Family, with British monarchs doing us the honour of sitting for our artists since 1809. We’re so proud this has continued into the 20th century and we continue celebrating major milestones for Her Majesty The Queen.”

The news comes after Royal commentator Camilla Tominey said it is important the Duke and Duchess of Sussex do not take the limelight away from working members of the family at the Jubilee.

She said it is vital next month’s celebrations are about the Queen.

Speaking to The Telegraph, she explained: “You can include the Sussexes, but you don’t want some sort of Harry and Meghan side show going on when the main event must be HMQ the Queen and equally there will be other members of the Royal Family who are still doing the daily grind who will resent being overshadowed by Harry and Meghan even if they don’t admit it."
