Prince William, Kate figures horrify at ‘worst’ wax museum: ‘Scared me’
Welcome to the home of Walk.
A Polish wax museum is getting an online meltdown over surprisingly bad replicas of Prince William and Kate Middleton – with users comparing the prince to “Hugh Grant after 20 Jagerbombs”. While these figures have been around for a while, they were recently brought to light by a TikTok showcase Over 13.5 million views.
“Come with me to Poland’s worst wax museum,” invites influencer Becca Blackburn in the clip.
For the uninitiated, Krakow Wax Museum – Which gets a modest 2.5 out of five stars on TripAdvisor – has become an international laughing stock for its slick celebrity wax figures, notorious for looking nothing like their subject matter. Highlights featured in the video include a cock-eyed Donald Trump, a jaundiced Jack Sparrow and a David Guetta who looks like the Cro-Magnon ancestor of the DJ and producer.
However, none have held a candle to the hideous doppelgangers of Prince William, 40, and his wife Kate, 41, who were infamously ripped apart in Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare.”
Their low-key wax “look-a-like” shows Middleton boasting a naturally large forehead and brown hair. While his other half wore the requisite red ceremonial uniform, his face was a far cry from the real Duke of Cambridge.
The figures have been unsurprisingly criticized online, with one TripAdvisor reviewer calling Middleton’s model “distorted”.
“Prince William scares me with his smile,” commented one disappointed TikTok gawker about his spouse.
“He thinks he has an itch he can’t scratch,” joked one commenter.
Other critics joked that sculptors at the Krakow Wax Museum carved their celebrities from memory, while others called it a “Wish.com” discount version of Madame Tussauds in London.
One visitor claimed they actually saw a baby crying because the museum’s sculptures were so scary.
A TripAdvisor reviewer said the exhibit is so “bad you have to see it.”
He wrote, “Wax works look nothing like people. “SpongeBob only has 1 hand, Harry Potter and co are just shop dummies with hats.”
He also weighed in on other images.
“Mr. Bean looks like he got hit by a bus… and worst of all… in Krakow…. in Poland… they thought it was a good idea to make a waxwork of Adolf Hitler! He pulled out. “It’s terrible…. to go!!!”
Unfortunately, Poland has become a mecca for shoddy wax museums.
Nearby is the funky Polonia Wax Museum, with a question mark that looks like Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger and other performers from the “House of Wax” museum when it was. to melt
