Wax William Debuts


The Brits seem to be fascinated by wax because there's always a stir when some new figure debuts at Madame Tussaud's. Remember the Posh and Becks manger scandal? The wax likeness of Prince William, which took three months to make, debuted today, standing beside his late mother Diana.


At what point do they decide they are going to immortalize someone, because many of the other members of the royal family (aside from Diana) seem to be captured in their withered later years? As the world has become more and more obsessed with youth and beauty, it seems to make sense that the world of wax might follow...

  1. CREEPY! Let's not forget that Mme Tussaud got her start by exhibiting the head of Marie Antoinette.

  2. I wonder if he's anatomically correct? ;)

  3. ...but not enough of a stir to actually be covered prominently anywhere in the mainstream British media ;)

    We'll wait for a waxwork of this guy before we get really excited:

  4.'s uncanny how much that replica of william looks like him...crazy..and yeah, doesn't suprise me that they're capturing him as a hottie rather than a wrinkled up old man...

  5. Yes, I'd agree with Alex; Harry is hot, hot, hot. But I'm still left wondering, "When will Towle get waxed?" ;-)

  7. Let's have pictures of boys kissing the wax likeness of William. I wonder if the security would allow it. I'm sure nady will post the pics!

  8. i wonder how strange it is for william to see himself like that, standing next to his mother..

    she has been gone since he was a child, and there they are, standing together as adults.

    they do look alot alike.

    Wasn't he 15? Hardly a child.

    But still odd to "see" yourself with your deceased mother.

    Where in the hell did you hear this????

  11. anyways, william is not paying attention to things like that. it would be odd seeing yourself standing with your deceased mum, though wax. however, i think the replica (esp. the face) of william is not as perfect as we can see in him personally.
