Madame Tussauds Queen waxwork gets Jubilee update

The Queen's wax figure at Madame Tussauds is changed at least every ten years and the latest impression of Her Majesty will be unveiled this May to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.

Each creation takes up to six months to make, with the hair alone taking six weeks.

Sculptor and creator of the two most recent wax figures of the Queen at Madam Tussauds, Steve Swales, explains the process.
