Harry and Meghan figures pop up in Windsor ahead of royal wedding

WINDSOR, England (Reuters) - With just days to go ahead of their highly anticipated wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made an appearance in the town of Windsor on Wednesday — or rather life-size models of the couple did.

A team from the Madame Tussauds wax museum unveiled the figures on the bridge linking Windsor, where Britain’s sixth-in-line to the throne and his fiancée will marry on Saturday, to Eton, and passersby soon stopped to take pictures beside them.

The London-based museum last week unveiled the Meghan Markle figure, which it said was dressed in a dark green P.A.R.O.S.H. frock, the same outfit the American actress wore when the couple’s engagement was announced last year.

“I feel I should curtsy first of course,” Izzy Newman, 51, joked after taking a selfie with the figures while wearing glasses decorated with crowns.

“Let’s enjoy the romance and the fun of it all, and the pageantry and all that – Brits are great at that.”
