Tussauds attempts to capture Kate
Tuesday 28 December 2010
Madame Tussauds' sculptors have been set a task that the Royal Mint recently failed: to attain a likeness of a would-be princess.
The Mint has been criticised because a £5 coin commemorating the forthcoming marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton carries an image that is barely recognisable as the couple. The royal bride-to-be appears older and to have gained weight.
Now the wax sculpture museum is arranging a two-hour sitting with Ms Middleton – unlikely to take place before the royal wedding in April next year. Sculptors will then take four months to produce a model, which will join the other wax members of the Royal Family. The museum is waiting to hear if Ms Middleton will donate an outfit for the waxwork likeness to wear.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
