Prince William, Kate figures horrify at ‘worst’ wax museum: ‘Scared me’
Welcome to the house of wack.
A Polish wax museum is being melted down online over astonishingly bad facsimiles of Prince William and Kate Middleton – with users comparing the prince to ‘Hugh Grant after 20 Jagerbombs’. While the numbers have been circulating for a while, they recently came to light via a TikTok showcase with more than 13.5 million views.
“Come with me to Poland’s worst wax museum,” invites influencer Becka Blackburn in the clip.
For the uninitiated, Krakow’s Wax Museum — which has a measly 2.5 stars out of five on TripAdvisor – has become an international laughing stock for its dodgy wax figures of celebrities, notorious for being nothing like their subjects. Highlights depicted in the video include a crooked Donald Trump, a jaundiced Jack Sparrow, and a David Guetta who more closely resembles the DJ and producer’s Cro-Magnon ancestor.
However, no one is holding a candle to the failed doppelgängers of Prince William, 40, and his wife, Kate, 41, who were infamously torn apart in Prince Harry’s telling memoir “Spare”.
Their less-than-flattering wax “look-a-likes” depict Middleton with a supernaturally large forehead and brown hair. Although her other half wore the required red ceremonial uniform, his face bore no resemblance to the real Duke of Cambridge.
Unsurprisingly, the numbers are being criticized online, with one TripAdvisor critic calling Middleton’s model “sloppy.”
“Prince William scared me with his smile,” one bewildered TikTok gawker said of her husband.
“He looks like he’s itchy and can’t scratch,” one commenter scoffed.
Other critics joked that sculptors at Krakow’s wax museum carved their famous figures from memory, while others called it the “Wish.com” discount version of Madame Tussaud’s in London.
One visitor claimed they actually saw a child crying because the museum’s images were so creepy.
The exhibit is so “bad you MUST visit,” said one TripAdvisor reviewer.
“Waxworks are nothing like the humans,” they wrote. “SpongeBob only has 1 hand, Harry Potter and co are just shop dummies with hats.”
They also weighed in on other images.
Mr. Bean looks like he’s been hit by a bus…. And worst of all….. in Krakow…. In Poland… they thought it was a good idea to have a wax figure of Adolf Hitler!” they ventilated. “It’s awful…. GO!!!”
Unfortunately, Poland has become a bit of a mecca for shoddy wax museums.
Nearby is the equally laughable Polonia Wax Museum, featuring a questionable Leonardo DiCaprio, Mick Jagger, and other images seemingly ripped from the “House of Wax” museum when it was still in use. melting.
