Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and the rest of the Royal Family have been seen back together, at Madame Tussauds.

The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge were joined by the Sussexes, prior to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The reunion isn't a permanent fixture, though.

The couple will rejoin the rest of the royal contingent for two weeks during the landmark event, marking the monarch's 70-year reign.

After it emerged that Princess Diana's youngest son and his celebrity wife were leaving the Royal Family in 2020, the London waxwork institution placed the couple in a separate display area.

Every royal figure at Madame Tussauds has received a wardrobe change, and are now resplendent in black tie.

The Duchess of Cambridge is now displayed in an emerald Jenny Packham gown she wore in 2019 in Pakistan.

The former Suits actress is seen in the red dress she wore during the Mountbatten Festival of Music at the Albert Hall in March 2020.

Whereas all three royal males are donned in tuxedos.

The Queen is dressed in a recreation of the white and silver lace dress, worn in the official Diamond Jubilee portrait photography.

Unsurprisingly, the most regal attire is reserved for the world's third-longest reigning monarch for her special celebration.

The silver silk garment is encrusted in more than 50,000 jewels, finished off with a blue sash emblazoned with the Queen's Garter Badge and the George IV State Diadem.

Tim Waters, Madame Tussauds London general manager, said: "With Harry and Meghan returning to the UK to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee it felt only right that our figures come together once more on our Royal Throne Room set to join in the family festivities.

"Our much-loved Royal Family figures have also been given an elegant new look ahead of the much-anticipated celebrations, decked out in their black-tie finery to mark this once in a lifetime occasion.

"At Madame Tussauds London we have a long history with The Royal Family, with British monarchs doing us the honour of sitting for our artists since 1809.

"We’re so proud this has continued into the 20th century and we continue celebrating major milestones for Her Majesty The Queen."
