Madame Tussauds Removes Harry And Meghan From Royal Family Set

Looks like the tension of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping back from their royal duties has reached fever point, as their waxwork models have now been removed from the Royal Family set at Madame Tussauds.

I KNOW.

Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, 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.
