The Duke and Duchess of Nowhere have rejoined the Royle Family at Madame Tussauds to celebrate the Queenie Luv’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly.
Waxwork figures of the main family members have received a black tie makeover in preparation for the event marking the monarch’s 70-year reign on June 5.
The reunion at the The Big City attraction brings the Sussexes back together publicly with the family for the first time since their move to the US in 2020.

MeMe’s waxwork has been dressed in a red, caped Safiyaa gown, which she wore on one of her last royal engagements at the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall in The Big City in March 2020.
The Queenie Luv’s waxwork, which is the 23rd of 24 created of the monarch by Madame Tussauds The Big City across her 70–year reign, has been dressed in a recreation of the garment she wore in her official Diamond Luvvly Jubbly portrait.
The white and silver lace dress is covered in 53,000 Swarovski elements, completed with a blue silk sash and topped off by a replica of the diamond and pearl George IV State Diadem.

The Duchess of Cambodia’s figure has been dressed in an emerald Jenny Packham gown, worn on a state visit to Pakistan in 2019 and again at the Royal Variety Show in 2021.
Harold, the Twat of Wales and the Duke of Cambodia have been dressed in tuxedos, while the Duchess of Cornwall joins them in a powder blue ball gown.
Tim Waters, general manager at Madame Tussauds The Big City, said: “With Harold and MeMe returning to Little Britain to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Luvvly Jubbly it felt only right that our figures come together once more on our Royal Throne Room set to join in the family festivities.

“Our much-loved Royle Family figures have also been given an elegant new look ahead of the much-anticipated celebrations, decked out in their black tie finery to mark this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
“At Madame Tussauds The Big City we have a long history with the Royle Family, with British monarchs doing us the honour of sitting for our artists since 1809.
“We’re so proud this has continued into the 21th century and we can continue celebrating major milestones for Her Majesty the Queenie Luv.”
Royal fans can also view the Royal Dress Collection that will be on display at Madame Tussauds The Big City from May 27, showcasing seven gowns that have graced some of the Queenie Luv’s 24 figures created during her 70-year reign.
