(AllHipHop News) Beyonce has replaced Queen Elizabeth II in Madame Tussauds London’s royal display.
A waxwork of the Formation singer, known as Queen Bey by her fans, was unveiled on Thursday and took the spot traditionally reserved for the British monarch at the tourist attraction, next to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Explaining the move in a press release, Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “Beyonce is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders. If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen’s spot in our attraction for the very first time, it’s Beyonce.
“HRH Queen Elizabeth II is famous for her mischievous sense of humor and we think a wry smile will cross her face when she sees that music royalty has temporarily filled her shoes.”
Beyonce’s wax likeness pays homage to the megastar’s Homecoming headline performance at Coachella last year and is dressed in a yellow Balmain hoodie and denim shorts – with a crown placed atop her head. She is also depicted raising her fist in her iconic Run the World power pose.
The swap will only last for one day, however, as Queen Elizabeth will return to her usual spot in the royal exhibition tomorrow, with Beyonce set to reign over the attraction’s music section.
