Here's why Madame Tussauds is splitting up The Duke and Duchess of Sussex

Cape Town – The Duke and Duchess are splitting up – the wax figures, that is.

Madame Tussauds confirmed they're separating Prince Harry from Meghan so she can also feature alongside a few Hollywood stars.

The general manager at Madame Tussauds London, Steve Davies explained, "Meghan continues to carve out her own modern take on life as a royal, and we want to mirror her independent celebrity status in the attraction."

"It's not necessarily forever – and we're not splitting our loved-up couple," he reassured. "We're just allowing Meghan to mingle in her... celebrity circle for a while."

Meghan Markle's wax figure was first unveiled in May 2018 around the same time The Duke and Duchess tied the knot, and placed next to a very happy Prince Harry.
