New member here! I'm unsure if this thread has been made (searched for it so i'm hoping it hasn't been made) or of it belonged on the Royal Pictures section (i figured no considering these aren't exactly them lol) but yeah. Wax figures of royalty! If anyone knows of any other wax figures, please do contribute Smiley

Spanish Royal Family from Madame Tussauds



Empress Elisabeth of Austria in Vienna



British Royal Family




Wax figures of older royals are more interesting (ex. Sissi above) since they've long since passed away. Ones of existing royals are still pretty cute (or weird, depends on you) to take pics with though lol

Hi Elena!

Great Yarmouth's House of Wax was thought to be the world's worst waxworks. I went there and thought it was grim. Anyway, judge for yourselves!

The Royal Family:



Prince William...  Laugh bounce



Prince Charles...  Jumping



My, what big hands you have your majesty!



Diana, apparently!

Hello, Future Crayon!

OMG those look terrible  Dead I'd die of a heart attack if I was ever trapped in there for the night. Charles' wax figure is the stuff of nightmares x_x i'm sorry

More of Empress Elisabeth of Austria by Madame Tussauds





Sleeping Beauty - Modeled after Madame du Barry, Louis XV's chief mistress (not exactly "royal" but close enough Tongue not to mention it's also the oldest on display)

Future Crayon!!  Star Star

Fabulous to see how funny they look.   Laugh bounce  Banana Banana Banana
It seems that the Great Yarmouth's House of Wax features more in caricatures!
Charles, Diana and Philip show some likeness to the real people.
The hair looks like it actually grows on the figures!!  Blink
Charles has lost his medals and Philip has found a new wife.  Laugh bounce
I think I'd like to visit the wax works there - for the variety and entertainment value.  Thumb up

By comparison, Madame Tussauds 'Spanish Royal Family' looks too gloomy and stiff to be lively company.

Elena.  Star
Empress Elisabeth is gorgeously life like - I can almost see her breathe.  Champagne
Sleeping Beauty looks to be completely out of it!  Laugh bounce

How utterly creepy it must be go to to a waxworks and to see one's own image. Particularly when some of these likenesses are so horrible.

I think was museums have more or less served their purpose and aren't all that interesting in the modern times. After all, it's not like we are starved of images of famous people.

True, haha. I find the wax figures of older royals more interesting, and that we've never seen them in 3D before.

Madame Tussaud's history and place in the French revolution is also an interesting thing to look into, imo.

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go see a wax museum, but now that I've seen these photos, my desire to do so has departed.
