The London museum shared an image on Twitter of the recent adjustments. Wax statues of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip stood in the middle of the display. To their left were Kate Middleton and Prince William. However, the couple was nowhere to be seen. “We’ve got to respect their wishes,” the museum posted with a shrugging emoji and the hashtag “Meghxit.”

He added, “From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set. As two of our most popular and well-loved figures they will of course remain an important feature at Madame Tussauds London as we watch to see what the next chapter holds for them.”

Madame Tussauds has separated wax figures to reflect real life events in the past. In 2016, the museum moved the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie statues away from each other after they announced their separation.

The wax museum unveiled the statue of the Duchess of Sussex in 2018 before Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, tied the knot. Harry’s figure was updated to reflect his beard.

On January 8, Meghan and Harry announced they intend to “make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.” “We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment,” they wrote on Instagram.
