Madame Tussauds London has given the first makeovers for the wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge since the installment in 2012.

Kate Middleton and Prince William's wax figures at Madame Tussauds London get their first makeovers in two years. The installment of the wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in 2012 was intended to honor the royal couple's first wedding anniversary.

Tourists who are going to visit the wax museum will see new glamourous evening outfits of Kate and William's wax figures. Kate's model wears Issa London's full-length turquoise silk jersey gown, LK Bennett's shoes and envelope clutch with her hair half pulled-up. Meanwhile, William's model wears a traditional Gieves and Hawkes tuxedo.

The wax figures were previously created based on the photograph and footage taken from Kate and William's engagement announcement in 2010. The models are placed together with the models of Queen, Prince of Wales and Prince Harry in the royal zone at the wax museum.

Matthew Clarkson, the marketing manager of Madame Tussauds London, said, "The Royal Family have always been the highlight of a visit for many guests to Madame Tussauds London. And the young royal couple have been particularly popular since their launch two years ago. After two years in the attraction, it seemed the perfect time to give them a glamorous makeover."
