    The British are coming.

    Madame Tussauds says its Washington location will start displaying wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge later this month.

    The British Deputy Ambassador to the United States, Patrick Davies, will unveil the figures of Prince William and his wife, formerly known as Catherine Middleton, on Sept. 12.

    Madame Tussauds says it took four months to create each figure. Catherine will be dressed in a copy of the pale lilac Alexander McQueen gown that she wore to a Los Angeles event in 2011 and a recreation of her sapphire and diamond engagement ring. William will wear a navy suit.

    This isn't the first time Madame Tussauds has recreated royals. Queen Elizabeth II has been modeled by the attraction over 20 times.
