Off With Their Heads

‘IF only life was as simple as it is in Madame Tussaud’s, which yesterday managed to get rid of half the Royal Family with barely a whimper of protest.

They got on Madame Tussaud’s wick too

The waxworks of Prince Edward and wife Sophie, along with Prince Andrew and Princess Anne, were all given the axe – quite literally.

In a move reminiscent of the origins of the exhibition, the heads of the four were chopped off and will be kept in the archives while the bodies are melted down.

The Mirror says the move comes as a result of a survey that showed little interest in the Royal Family, with visitors preferring something a bit more modern.

‘They will make way for a new star attraction – Prince William – if negotiations with the Palace later this year are successful,’ it explains.

That accounts for one of the four discarded waxworks, but what of the other three?

Perhaps, rumours that Jordan is to be immortalised in wax are true after all…
