Prince William and Catherine make wax work appearance in Vienna

Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge are the latest stars of Madame Tussauds in Vienna, Austria.

The royal replicas made their debut at a new exhibition in the Austrian capital Vienna this week beside the giant Riesenrad ferris wheel made famous in the classic movie, The Third Man.

Later the couple were taken to a more fitting setting at Schloss Schonnbrunn Palace, the former summer home of the Habsburg monarch, ancient relatives of the Windsors.

Kate - wearing a copy of the black lace Alice Temperley gown she wore at the premiere of the film War Horse earlier this year - looks every inch the princess.

But the couple tower over a new model of the Queen, who seemed more hair to the throne than sovereign.

"Her hair seems much longer than it does in real life - but so does William's so maybe that's the way they like it," said one fan.

The Royal waxworks are on show until 10th August in the Austrian capital at Madame Tussauds at the Vienna Prater.
