Meanwhile, Prince William will be donning a double-breasted, six button two-piece tuxedo created by Gieves & Hawkes.
"Madame Tussauds shares a close relationship with the British Royal Family dating back to William IV, who was King when the first attraction opened in London in 1835," waxworks confirmed in a release regarding to display. "The current Queen has been modeled by the attraction over 20 times and has given the studio team six personal sittings over the years."
The replicas don't stop at NYC, as waxy versions of the royals will soon be unveiled in London, Amsterdam and Blackpool with different outfits for each location.
