'No Rash Decisions Here!' Australia's Wax Royals To Stay Together
Though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were unceremoniously removed from the Royal Family at Madame Tussauds in London, Sydney's museum says they're 'better together'.
Sydney said it had no intention to follow suit with London, as the royal exhibit is one of the prime attractions.
"Don’t worry Australia, we’re making no rash decisions here," general manager Mark Connolly said.
"We know how popular Meghan and Harry are with Australians – which we witnessed during their 2018 Royal visit.
"Taking a seat amongst the Royal Family is one of the most popular and iconic photos that our guests capture and we want to encourage this."
The British waxwork museum pulled the figures of the couple from its royal family display just a day after the couple announced they would be stepping down from their senior royal roles.
On Friday, a large empty space was seen to the left of the Queen.
A new home is yet to be found for the British wax figures of Harry and Megs -- but it won't be anywhere near the royals.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on Wednesday that they intend to divide their time between North America and the UK to carve out a “progressive new role” and step back from their senior positions.
Senior members of the royal family were disappointed by the move, a royal source 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," said general manager Steve Davies.
"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 them."
