Madame Tussauds unveils new waxwork

The royal wedding on AOL UK: Latest news, pictures and video

A waxwork figure of Meghan Markle has been unveiled less than a fortnight before the royal wedding.

The likeness of the American actress, standing alongside her groom Prince Harry, is the latest addition to Madame Tussauds London.

Ms Markle's waxwork sports the green PAROSH dress she wore for their engagement announcement as well as a replica of her diamond engagement ring.

Harry's figure, originally created to mark his 30th birthday, has been updated for the occasion.

The couple's waxworks were unveiled on Wednesday and will be accessible to the public the day before their nuptials on May 19.

Madame Tussauds London's general manager Edward Fuller said: "Excitement ahead of the royal wedding is reaching fever pitch and we have been inundated with questions about when people can finally meet 'Their Royal Likenesses'.

"There is a lot of love out there for Meghan and Harry and we're following their lead by inviting the great British public to join the couple in their wedding celebrations here at Madame Tussauds London."
