The Queen’s new Madame Tussaud’s statue has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, and just like Queen Elizabeth II’s striking personality, the entry of the Queen’s new Madame Tussaud’s statue was dramatic. The wax figure made its way in a horse and carriage in Blackpool, England, finally taking the centre stage at the museum.
More than the life-like wax statute, a smaller, cute detail about the statue has caught everyone’s attention. Knowing how much the Queen loves corgis, a mini corgi wax statue has also been place near that of the queen’s. Impeccably dressed in a blush pink ensemble, the Queen’s statue can be seen sitting elegantly in a chair, while the corgi is seen relieving itself near a Buckingham Palace pillar and on the royal red carpet.
The statue has been placed next to the models of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. “We are thrilled to have the brand-new figure of the Queen with us,” general manager of Madame Tussauds Blackpool Stuart Jarman stated. “She is an extremely popular attraction here and one that visitors, young and old, always want to see during their visit,” he added.

The new statue will replace the one commissioned back in 2012 in honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee that marked the 60th anniversary of the sovereign’s accession to the throne. The new figure has been installed to memorialise the monarch’s forthcoming Platinum Jubilee in 2022. Interestingly, 23 waxworks have been created for Queen Elizabeth II. The first one was created in 1928 when she was 2 years old.
“We have never had a character make such a dramatic entrance, but if such an extravaganza was to happen for anyone, of course, it had to be for Her Majesty,” Jarman revealed further. “A team of the most skilled, artistic and passionate people around the world are involved in making the perfect wax figure and attention to detail is key. The eyes are hand painted and every tiny detail is duplicated including using fine red silk threads as the veins in the whites of the eyes.
Our costume department also works with some of the world’s most sought-after designers and stylists to ensure we’re getting the figure 100% right to ensure fans will love it. We even have donated items of clothing from celebrities’ personal wardrobes that they have previously worn to an event,” he added.
