Royal wax figures wear Christmas sweaters


The waxwork figures of the Queen and her family were festively decorated with kitsch Christmas sweaters on Tuesday to help raise awareness for a children's charity appeal. The 90-year-old royal's waxwork at London's Madame Tussauds was dressed in a green jumper with a picture of a corgi dog on the front to mark Save The Children's annual Christmas Jumper Day on December 16.

"Everybody loves the royals and everybody loves the corgis so for us it's just been extremely important to have their contributions to the campaign," Save the Children's head of public relations, Helena Wiltshire, said.

The figures of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have been moved together to jointly wear a large double jumper. The waxworks of the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry were also dressed in Christmas tops and will be on display throughout December.
