Prince Harry Meghan markle statues removed at Madame Tussauds in London

Soon after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, announced that they want to “step back as senior members of the royal family” seeking to “carve out a progressive new role within this institution”, their wax statues at Madame Tussauds museum in London, were removed from the Royal Family set.

While sharing a photo of the same, the museum’s Twitter handle, shared with the caption, “We’ve got to respect their wishes ?‍♂️ #Megxit.”

Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, stated that “We are reacting to the surprising news that Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior Royals.” Likewise, he added that “Meghan and Harry’s statue will no longer be there in our Royal Family set.”

“However, both of them are most popular and well-loved figures. Therefore, they will remain an important feature at Madame Tussauds London,” Davies said further.

Meghan’s statue was unveiled in 2018 at London’s Madame Tussauds to coincide with Royal wedding. Meghan and Harry got married on May 19, 2018.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA
