Madame Tussauds New York to Welcome “An American Princess"

She’s set to become the first U.S. citizen to join the British Royal Family in 80 years. Today, Madame Tussauds New York has announced Meghan Markle, will join husband-to-be Prince Harry in the world famous Times Square attraction ahead of the royal nuptials in May.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, and having already made her mark as a humanitarian, actress and role model, Meghan Markle will make history as the first American to ever receive the title of Her Royal Highness (HRH).

“Meghan Markle has captured the hearts and imaginations of people all around the world,” explains Christine Haughney, ‎Regional Head of Marketing, ‎Merlin Entertainments. “We’re so excited to give our fans the chance to ‘meet’ their “American Princess” and celebrate the Royal Wedding this Spring.”

With the unveiling of the finished figure scheduled to take place in May, the details (including “Her Royal Likeness’” chosen outfit and stance) remain a tightly guarded secret. The choice will reflect an iconic moment in Meghan’s royal journey so far. 

To celebrate the impending nuptials, Madame Tussauds New York has also announced a special “Meghans and Harrys go free” offer.  Guests named Meghan or Harry can visit the attraction free of charge from now until the May 19th wedding date (ID required). Learn More about our Royal Promotion!
