Wax figures don't always look like the people they're modeled on, but the team at London's Madame Tussauds got Prince William and Kate Middleton spot-on.
The waxworks – which were unveiled yesterday - cost more than $230,000 each and took a team of artist four months to complete. Kate's hair alone took six weeks and was crafted from thousands of strands of human hair.
The figures are dressed in copies of the outfits William and Kate wore to announce their engagement in 2010. Madame Tussauds have also recreated three other outfits, which the figures will be dressed in when they travel to other cities.
Spot the difference! The waxwork (left) and the real thing (right).
