A NEW waxwork of Beyoncé has taken The Queen’s place in Madame Tussauds London’s royal display.
The figure, which pays homage to Queen Bey’s historic Coachella performance, was unveiled in the spot usually reserved for another royal – Queen Elizabeth.
The model of Beyoncé strikes her Run the World pose and wears her one of her most iconic Beychella looks – a bright yellow cropped hoodie complete with the historically black college and universities inspired logo, denim shorts and white heeled tasselled boots.
Steve Davies, general manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “Beyoncé is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders. If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen’s spot in our attraction for the very first time, it’s Beyoncé.
“HRH Queen Elizabeth II is famous for her mischievous sense of humour and we think a wry smile will cross her face when she sees that music royalty has temporarily filled her shoes.”
The stunt has been celebrated by Beyoncé’s fans across the world.
With previous Beyoncé wax figure fails in mind, fans praised the resemblance of Madame Tussauds latest addition. “They knew to have Beyoncé’s wax figure accurate or the Beyhive would swarm,” one wrote on Twitter.
While fans have rejoiced Queen Bey’s figure taking what they believe is its rightful place, the placement of the model is not permanent.
“In the words of Beyoncé herself, Her Majesty is most definitely ‘irreplaceable’ so Queen Bey will take her spot for one day only before her figure moves to own our music stage,” Davies said.
The Brown Skin Girl singer will be moved to the attraction’s music zone from tomorrow (Friday September 20th).
The Beyoncé figure in London is the first of two of the star set to join the world-famous attraction. A second figure will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas this October.
