Ahead of the jubilee, even the waxwork of the queen is getting a makeover—at a cost of £150,000.

Madame Tussauds has made the wax queen a new head to match her official jubilee portrait. And new waxworks of Prince William and Kate have also been added at the cost of another £150,000 each.

The total of £450,000 would take the average worker around 18 years to earn.

Stuff the Jubilee badges are on sale at just £4 for 10 from Bookmarks. Go to www.bookmarksbookshop.co.uk or phone 020 7637 1848
