On December 11, a Christmas display at Madame Tussauds in Berlin, Germany, featured a pair of actors wearing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle masks, but they weren’t exactly well received by the public, as some described them as “terrifying.”
As if the uncanny masks weren’t creepy enough, the actors impersonating the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were wearing typical ugly Christmas sweaters, something that probably none of the two stylish royals would ever do in public.
The display tried to portray the soon-to-be parents like they were an ordinary couple in a casual holiday party. The scenery included a couple of cozy couches and a Christmas tree. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
The actress who played the role of 37-year-old Markle even had her own baby bump and the two doubles decorated their own Christmas tree themselves, unlike the recently married couple at their Kensington Palace home.
32-year-old German royal Princess Xenia von Sachsen, who is the great-great-granddaughter of the last king of Saxony, Friedrich August III, visited the display and was photographed next to the pair.
The public took to social media to share their reactions to the holiday themed stunt, and most of them weren’t positive, with several users calling the masks “creepy.”
“I find this so incredibly creepy... on many levels,” Kelly Mathews tweeted. “Creepy and doesn't look right,” added Vanessa Gillieo. “Please stop with the wax figures. They are seriously creepy!” said LaVerne Mars.
“These Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wax figures are what you see right before you die.”

This is not the first time this wax masks have freaked people out. Back in August, faux Harry and Meghan were seen walking a dog and having a drink around London.
In March, Madame Tussauds in New York announced that Meghan Markle was getting her own wax figure from the prestigious house for the first time, to join her royal relatives at the museum.

The Duchess of Sussex’s wax figure was unveiled in May, not long before her wedding to Prince Harry, who was also portrayed, complete with his bearded look.
Just as her fans in New York City, the public at Markle’s new hometown, London, also have the chance to see a replica of the former TV star, and it definitely looks way better than the controversial masks.
