Even the Royal Family Wax Figures Can’t Escape Wearing Ugly Christmas Sweaters This Holiday Season

1 minute read

Madame Tussauds London is getting into the spirit of the season by attiring none other than the Royal Family wax figures in ugly Christmas sweaters — proving that even when you’re a royal, you’re still not exempt from humiliating holiday traditions.

In an Instagram posted by the Madame Tussauds official account, the adults of the royal family are clad in festive Christmas sweaters that reflect their public personas — to wit, William and Kate wear a conjoined couples’ sweater and Queen Elizabeth wears a cheery corgi-themed sweater. Although Princess Charlotte and Prince George are sadly not present, four real corgi dogs (an homage to the queens’ own famous corgis) lent their presence to the official photo shoot.

According to People, the museum dressed up the royal family wax figures in honor of the “Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day,” which will take place on December 16 and is a campaign that asks people to wear their favorite silly sweaters in exchange for donating to the nonprofit Save the Children.
