Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Wax Masks Unveiled

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry donned Christmas jumpers and big smiles for a festive photoshoot in Berlin.

But if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's grins looked a little frozen, there's a good reason - they're moulded in latex. The waxworks arrived for the holiday season at Madame Tussauds in the German capital on Tuesday.

Unlike the museum's usual wax figures, the new moving figures are actors wearing silicone masks modelled on their subjects' features.

They decorate a tree, pose with visitors and gaze lovingly at each other. They are the the latest attraction at the Berlin museum, located not far away from the Brandenburg Gate.

Visitors had voted for Harry and Meghan as the next live wax figures performing at the museum, said Nina Zerbe, spokesperson for Berlin's branch of Madame Tussauds.
