Prince William and Kate"s wax figures given a makeover

Prince William and Kate
New waxwork figures of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, have been unveiled at the Madame Tussauds museum in London.

The royal couple have undergone a glamorous makeover and touch up two years after they were introduced into the attraction, when they were first immortalised in the outfits they wore at their 2010 engagement.

Changing out of the royal blue Issa dress she wore at the announcement, Kate, 32, has been dressed in a floor-length teal evening gown that features a cinched waist and beaded collar. The mother-of-one has had her enviable brunette locks swept up into a half “do, showing off her matching earrings.

Prince William is seen standing by his wife”s side, clasping his hands together and looking sharp in a black tuxedo and bow tie.

William and Kate are not the only high-profile figures who have recently been revamped at the London branch. Just last month new versions of David and Victoria Beckham were unveiled ahead of the couple”s 15th wedding anniversary, which falls on Friday 4 July.

Suited and booted, football legend David wears a black Hugo Boss suit and matching dotted tie. The father-of-four has also been updated with his new tattoos, including the very visible ones on his hand that read “Victoria” and “Love”.
Designer Victoria, meanwhile, is dressed in one of her own SS14 ready-to-wear pieces – a deep V-neck fuchsia number that shows off her svelte figure.

Unlike William and Kate, David and Victoria”s models hadn”t been touched up for more than ten years.
