Wax figures of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle of the British Royal Family were removed from the exhibition of Madame Tussauds. This was reported in the British newspaper The Sun on Thursday, January 9.
The decision was made after the couple’s declaration of their desire to live separately.
“From today the figures of Meghan and Harry will no longer appear in our collection of the royal family,” – said the general manager of the museum, Steve Davis.
Now next to the Queen, Prince Philip, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge there is an “awkward gap,” the edition writes. It is noted that the wax items will remain in the Museum of Madame Tussauds, but it is still unclear where they will be placed.
On January 8, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reported to Instagram about their desire to give up the duties of senior members of the royal family and gain financial independence from Buckingham Palace. The spouses noted that they wanted to establish their own charity and also plan to live not only in the UK, but also in North America.
Queen Elizabeth II for her part reported that she was extremely disappointed that Harry and Markle decided to resign the royal family without talking to Buckingham Palace.
The media have repeatedly noted that Prince Harry and his wife feel particularly pressured by the public. In October, the prince sued The Sun Daily Mirror tabloids for access to voice mail.
In addition, Meghan Markle is regularly criticised by British journalists.
