Wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been removed from the royal set at Madame Tussauds London.
The museum has separated Harry and Meghan from the rest of the royal family following the couple’s bombshell statement that they are to “step back” as senior royals.
Wax replicas of the pair previously stood next to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, but have now been moved.
Steve Davies, general manager at the attraction, said: “Alongside the rest of the world we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior royals.
“From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set.
“As two of our most popular and well-loved figures they will of course remain an important feature at Madame Tussauds London as we watch to see what the next chapter holds for the them.”

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
