The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are being separated - their waxworks, that is.

Meghan Markle’s figure will be moved alongside celebrities at Madame Tussauds London, to reflect her “independent celebrity status.”

The American former actress, who rose to fame in US legal drama ‘Suits’ and was a celebrity in her own right before marrying Harry, will now take up a spot next to her A-list wedding guests.

These include Tom Hardy, the Beckhams and actress Priyanka Chopra.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry will rejoin the rest of the Royal Family replicas in a different room.

Steve Davies, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: "We're always listening to what people have to say about their favourite stars.

"Meghan continues to carve out her own modern take on life as a royal and we want to mirror her independent celebrity status in the attraction.

"It's not necessarily forever - and we're not splitting our loved-up couple. We're just allowing Meghan to mingle in her more-familiar celebrity circle for a while."

The waxworks were first unveiled at the London gallery ahead of the royal wedding in May 2018.

The couple’s figures are wearing the outfits they wore to announce their engagement in November 2017 - Meghan is in her green sleeveless Parosh bow dress, while Harry wears a navy blue suit.
