Normally, wax figures give me the heebie jeebies. However, the newly created one of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge isn’t all that frightening. In fact, it’s pretty good (for a wax figure).
Her Royal Highness’s figure is dressed in the royal blue Issa wrap she wore to hers and Prince William‘s engagement announcement at Clarence House on November 16th, 2010. The famous blue sapphire ring, originally worn by Diana, Princess of Wales, hides behind a black clutch, which Catherine carries to many an occasion.
The Evening Standard pointed out to Madame Tussauds that Catherine’s mole – which is on the right side of her face, just above her lips – was too obvious. Louis Wiltsire, who created the figure, quickly corrected the mole. If you’ve noticed it, that means it’s not right,” Wiltshire said, adding “It’s there, we have not made it up.”
Royal aids provided footage and photos of the royal couple, who were unable to fit a sitting into their packed schedule. William’s figure went through an update, which finds him in a Gieves and Hawkes navy suit and wearing a copy of his Omega Seamaster watch.
Did you know that the hair’s on Catherine’s wax figure were placed individually? It took five weeks to sculpt her head.
In other Wills and Kate news, People is all abuzz with baby news surrounding the couple. This comes as no surprise, given that’s the next step for the Duke and Duchess, especially since it ensures their bloodline.
Let’s be clear, though. An heir in the oven is not official until Clarence House – TRH’s office – announces it.
