Here are the William and Kate wax figurines!
Kate Middleton and Prince William: Check Out Their Wax Job! - E! Online

And thank you cepe for the compliment. I love sharing any info about the couple I come across.And of course I love doing updates anytime they have an appearance. Your right I shouldn't be upset by the article. I think people in the Falklands are over reacting personally.

I think I just died laughing:

Those figures are for the New York Madame Tussauds. Here are the wax figures for the London Madame Tussauds - a reproduction of the engagement press conference:

I have to say, this particular Kate in the blue 'Issa' dress is absolutely astounding. I would've said that was actually Kate. Well done to all involved.

The new waxfigures in Daily Mail:

I think it really looks like them.

The british ones are not bad. Regarding the NY ones I thought it was Liz Hurley and Shane Warne

The William's not brilliant, but I think the Kate is excellent. Apparently neither of them were able to actually sit for MT (even the Queen has done so in the past) but SJP gave them Kate's height.

It weirds me out the way the Daily Mail have Diana's wax figure gazing over at them in some of the photos. That's just wrong.

Kate Middleton Waxwork Unveiled

If you scroll down on this link you'll also see the Amsterdam figures, where Kate is wearing her lace Temperley dress. Again, the Kate figure is better than the William in my view.

IMO William looks like cross between Peter Phillips & Viscount Linley.

Do this wax figures wear original dresses from the mentioned designers or do they tailor replicas? (I suppose the Waxpuppets do NOT wear the dresses that were actually worn by the real person)

I believe the designers involved have made replicas of the gowns Kate was wearing. The blue engagement dress the wax figure is wearing has been made by Issa based on the original. Funnily, they don't have Kate's measurements as she bought the dress herself off the rack, all SJP would give MT was her height. The rest was apparently guess work.

Wax Kate really has an amazing resemblance to real Kate. And that's a fair resemblance to William; his toothy grin is certainly captured well enough!

Not impressed with William's waxwork, but Kate's actually looks like her - it's easily one of the best royal waxworks currently on exhibition, certainly better than the figures of (I assume) Prince Harry and Diana in the background.

The New York ones will be unveiled tomorrow. I have read that the Duke and Duchess did not do a sitting for the waxwork but were somewhat involved in the making process.

Fabulous! I think they were all well done. What a nice tribute to the happy couple one year later. :)
