(April 27 – Shanghai) The wedding ceremony of Prince William is just around the corner. Madame Tussauds Shanghai, located on the 10th floor of New World Building, No. 2-68, West Nanjing Road, is honored to witness the most touching moment before the royal marriage: the wax figures of Prince William and his dead mother Princess Diana are displayed together on the same stage. Prince William receives best wishes and eternal love of his dead mother from the most remote distance in the world.
The gathering of the two wax figures has miraculously shortened the most remote time and space in the world. After all these years, Princess Diana still looks gorgeous, elegant and pretty as a loving mother. As the second heir to the British throne, the handsome prince has golden hair and a melancholy look in his eyes just like his mother, which may be the best comfort to his regret that his mother could not attend his wedding ceremony. Although Princess Diana, hailed as the People’s Princess, had an unhappy royal marriage, she still hoped that her sons would have happy families and become kind-hearted leaders.
It is worthwhile to mention that this year is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Madame Tussauds and 5th anniversary of the opening of Madame Tussauds Shanghai, where visitors can not only have “zero distance” contact with their beloved idols, but also have an opportunity to feast their eyes on the wax figures of many celebrities including Yao Ming, Liu Xiang, Jackie Chen, Beckham, and Michael Jackson, as well as new faces like Chris Lee, Lady Gaga, Zhou Libo and Donnie Yen.
On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Madame Tussauds, we are very proud of our achievements and would like to thank you all for your support and love. With a history of more than two hundred years, Madame Tussauds Shanghai has witnessed the significant transition of celebrity culture.
