Queen’s 23 stone wax figure makes ‘dramatic entrance’ after arriving on a carriage


In the background, one of her beloved corgis, made of wax too, seems to be hilariously relieving itself under a Buckingham Palace pillar and on the royal red carpet.

No doubt the public who will pose sitting next to the Queen will enjoy the touch of puppy mischief.

Her statuesque majesty will be part of a set next to Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“We are thrilled to have the brand-new figure of the Queen with us,” Stuart Jarman, general manager of Madame Tussauds Blackpool stated.

“She is an extremely popular attraction here and one that visitors, young and old, always want to see during their visit.

“We have never had a character make such a dramatic entrance, but if such an extravaganza was to happen for anyone, of course, it had to be for Her Majesty.”

The new figure of HM The Queen will replace the figure created in 2012 in celebration of the monarch’s Diamond Jubilee when she first appeared in Madame Tussauds Blackpool.

Over the course of her long, long life, 23 waxworks have been created of her, starting in 1928 when she was 2 years old.

“A team of the most skilled, artistic and passionate people around the world are involved in making the perfect wax figure and attention to detail is key,” said Mr Jarman.

“The eyes are hand-painted and every tiny detail is duplicated including using fine red silk threads as the veins in the whites of the eyes.

“Our costume department also works with some of the world’s most sought-after designers and stylists to ensure we’re getting the figure 100 percent right to ensure fans will love it.

“We even have donated items of clothing from celebrities’ personal wardrobes that they have previously worn to an event.”
