The Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker is not popular enough to have a waxwork model of herself in Madame Tussauds' even as Prince Harry's model was unveiled on Wednesday.

"We poll our guests on who they want to see, and Camilla isn't a very popular choice yet," said a spokeswoman of Madame Tussauds'.

She said that Madame Tussauds' had refused thousands of requests to put a likeness of Prince Harry on show, preferring to wait until he reached his 21st birthday.

"We've been inundated with requests to make Prince Harry since we launched Prince William's figure last year," said Nicky Marsh, Tussauds' marketing director.

"It seems only right to complete the circle of the immediate Royal Family by including him.

"We're sure he'll be very popular and may even steal Prince William's crown as our most popular male," Nicky said.

Prince Harry's likeness was placed alongside that of his brother Prince William joining a host of other royals on display at the attraction.

Like his older brother, Harry is kitted out in a double-breasted suit from Aquascutum, a shirt from the Saville Row tailor Gieves and Hawkes, a tie from Thomas Pink and shoes from Church's.

His model stands in Madame Tussauds' World Stage area close to effigies of other members of his family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and the late princess Diana.
