Have Prince Harry and Meghan Markle already begun to bear the consequences of the shocking reveal? Well, the wax statues of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Madame Tussauds London have been removed from the royal set.

The change came just a day after Harry and Meghan officially announced their decision to step back as “senior members” of the Royal family on Instagram and become “financially independent” and devote their time to low-key charitable works.

The change is said to have shaken the staff at the iconic museum as they believe the statues of the Sussexes were one of the most popular figures in this space. “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,” said Steve Davies, the general manager.

“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 them,” Davies added. The wax figures were earlier positioned next to the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, with Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wax figures flanked on the other side.

The Instagram post, which has garnered over 1.4 million likes and 80,000 comments, is said to have angered The Queen beyond measure. The Buckingham Palace soon released a statement implying that a detailed talk with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was underway.

While the exact reason behind the move is not known as yet, Prince Harry amassed a lot of support for taking the best step. Prince Harry, who has been pegged as the “black sheep” of the royal family is being lauded for being such a support spouse.

A lot of fans believed that Harry’s genuine care and concern for his family spoke volumes and that leaving was in all honesty, a great decision to make. A volley of others also made a passing reference to Princess Diana about how she’d be alive if something similar had happened in the past.
