Wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been removed from the royal set at Madame Tussauds London.

The museum has separated Harry and Meghan from the rest of the royal family following the couple's bombshell statement that they are to "step back" as senior royals.

Madame Tussauds London moves its figures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from its Royal Family set to elsewhere in the attraction, in the wake of the announcement that they will take a step back as "senior members" of the royal family, dividing their time between the UK and North America.

Wax replicas of the pair previously stood next to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, but have now been moved.

Steve Davies, general manager at the attraction, said: "Alongside the rest of the world we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior royals.

"From today Meghan and Harry's figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set.

"As two of our most popular and well-loved figures they will of course remain an important feature at Madame Tussauds London as we watch to see what the next chapter holds for the them."
