The couple were two of the Museum's most popular figures.

Museum's general manager, Steve Davies, 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," he stated. "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."

The museum had unveiled the waxworks of the couple in May 2018, before they tied the knot in Windsor, England. However, the museum did not reveal where they would be placing the wax statue.
