For his father, King Charles, to be crowned on May 6, Prince Harry will be traveling back to the UK, Buckingham Palace announced last month.
But before that, his Madame Tussauds wax figure has been brought back into the royal family in anticipation of Charles and Camilla’s big day, so royal fans can see him reunite with his family.
Alongside his father and stepmother, a wax replica of Harry can be seen smiling and sporting a black-and-white suit in photos. The Royal Palace experience at our attraction has officially welcomed Prince Harry back as of today, according to Tim Waters, general manager of Madame Tussauds London.
“The temporary relocation ensures that visitors will be able to meet all members of the royal family present at this once-in-a-lifetime event, and it reflects the Duke of Sussex’s participation in the coronation.
After the coronation festivities are over, his figure will stay in The Royal Palace experience for a short while before returning to the Awards Party area of the attraction to stand by his wife’s side among our Hollywood A-listers.
While Meghan Markle will stay at home in California with the couple’s two young children, Prince Archie, who turns four on Saturday, and Princess Lilibet, who is one, while Harry attends the ceremony.
“Buckingham Palace is pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6,” the palace said in a statement. Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet will stay in California with the Duchess of Sussex.
The Duke will attend the coronation, according to a nearly identical statement from Archewell, Harry and Meghan’s charitable organization.
Harry’s attendance has been confirmed after months of rumors following the release of the Sussexes’ Netflix documentary and his frank memoir, Spare, in which he detailed his tumultuous relationship with the royal family.
