There was quite the commotion around London yesterday afternoon as a very familiar looking duo (or maybe even trio) walked around London. First visiting Battersea Park and then to a pub in Fulham for a spot of lunch flanked by an entourage of journalists and the general public.
As part of Madame Tussauds new Live Figures feature, the perfectly recreated doppelgangers of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the day walking around the capital city. Flanked by a slightly less-waxy lookalike of Meghan’s own Beagle, Guy (a part filled by Urban Paws UK’s very own Capone the Beagle!)
‘Harry and Meghan’ started their day trip with a leisurely walk through Battersea Park, where they walked hand in hand in paw (okay, Capone was on a lead). After their midday stroll the ‘Happy Couple’ took a taxi to the dog-friendly Sands End pub in Fulham – one of their regular watering holes.
The pair were out promoting Madame Tussauds’ latest attraction featuring real models wearing realistic, perfectly-rendered masks, not unlike those sported in the Mission Impossible films. These Live Models allow the public to actively interact with the Madame Tussauds exhibits in ways previously impossible.
Guy the Beagle’s duplication process was achieved through Capone naturally looking very similar to Harry and Meghan’s now Kensington Palace-based dog, meaning no wax was needed! This is not to say that Capone had a cop-out, as he needed to act naturally for the day out. Employing his keen Beagle senses (mostly his Beagle nose) and comprehensive acting experience to help tie the experience together.
The realistic models were first revealed earlier this year live during Britain’s Got Talent with the Duke and Duchess-alikes attending the live finale. This tour around London helps to launch the new exhibit at Madame Tussauds’ Baker Street venue.
