London’s famous wax-museum Madame Tussaud’s presented the launch of their Prince William wax work on Wednesday.
Visitors and reporters were encouraged to get up close to the wax figure of the 23 year old prince.
Prince William is the latest acquisition to wax figures of the British royal family, with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Princess Diana already featured in the popular London tourist attraction.
Spokesperson for the museum Diane Moon said she expected Prince William to become the most popular male at the museum.
“I think Prince William is going to be the Number One male at Madame Tussaud’s. You know we’ve got Robbie Williams and we’ve got Brad Pitt, but judging by the reaction this morning, I think all the ladies will make a bee line for Prince William.” she said.
The 6ft 3in (1.92 metres) figure took three months to make and cost 100-thousand pounds (USD 177-thousand).
The museum chose to depict William in a casual pose wearing a lounge suite to reflect what they call a “laid back personality”
Prince Williams has not yet been able to see the figure of himself.
The wax doll was created in collaboration with Clarence House, the official residence of Prince Charles and his sons.
