Already separated? Looks like this is the first real step at Megxit becoming a reality.
Madame Tussauds announced yesterday in a rather, petulant manner, that it had removed the wax figures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the royal section containing other members of the royal family, only one day after the royal couple made the announcement of taking a “step back” from their roles. However, we can’t help but wonder if this is how the museum should have announced the news:
Will the royal figures be removed completely from the museum? No.
Steve Davies, general manager at the attraction, said the couple were two of their most popular figures. “Alongside the rest of the world we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior royals,” he said. “From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set.” The figures will remain in the museum, but the exact location about their placement has not been announced yet. All we know is that they won’t be part of the royal section.
Is this a direct insult to the royal couple? The tweet might be but the moving around of the figures is something the tourist attraction has done before to reflect what’s happening around the world. In the past, upon the news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split, the wax figure of Brad Pitt was moved away from her’s, just like Pitt was shuffled around when he split with his previous wife, Jennifer Aniston.
The internet, however, is not thrilled about this “reshuffling”:
There's always so much to do when I visit London, so thanks for helping me cross one thing off the list. I guess I'm just surprised that your Twitter is run by a petty 14-year old.

That is a cop out! The fact that this is what the royals did with the news “hey let’s call Madame blah blah and get those wax figures down” you should be worried about Prince William extra curricular love life! So cheaters deserve a wax figure…comical
