Prince William and Kate Middleton

Prince William and Kate Middleton's wax figures will be unveiled in Madame Tussaud's in London, New York and Amsterdam to honour the couple ahead of their first wedding anniversary later this month.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will not be present at any of the ceremonies.

Middleton's figure in Tussauds London will be dressed in a recreation of her blue Issa London engagement dress.

At the Tussauds New York, she the model will wear a replica of the full-length Alexander McQueen gown that she wore for Bafta's "Brits to watch gala" last summer. She will also wear an exact copy of the sapphire and diamond engagement ring that previously belonged to Princess Diana.

As for William, he will be wearing a debonair navy suit at the Tussauds New York.

Tussauds Amsterdam will feature Kate in a lace Alice Temperley number that she wore during her recent appearance at the War Horse premiere.

"Madame Tussauds shares a close relationship with the British royal family dating back to William IV, who was king when the first attraction opened in London in 1835," the wax works release said.

The wax figures will also be unveiled in Blackpool on 18 April.
