Megxit is really happening.
Madame Tussauds London announced Thursday that it has removed wax figures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from the section containing other members of the royal family, just one day after the couple broke the news they will “step back” from their roles.

“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,” Steve Davies, general manager of the museum, told The Independent. “From today Meghan and Harry’s figures will no longer appear in our royal family set.”
He added that visitors will still be able to see the figures, albeit in a different part of the building.

“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.”

Madame Tussauds moved the wax figure of Brad Pitt away from Angelina Jolie after they split, just as the museum separated Pitt and his previous wife, Jennifer Aniston, when they decided to end their marriage.
However, another piece of pop culture, Netflix’s drama The Crown sadly won’t depict the 2020 news. One of the show’s producers told the United Kingdom’s PA Media that the series probably won’t ever cover royal events that are happening today.
