‘The Queen’ has undergone a touch up and is now back in place at Madam Tussauds in Blackpool, after first arriving at the attraction on the promenade in 2012.

The new and improved waxwork version of Her Majesty is seated on an ornate bench and accompanied by one of her beloved pet corgi dogs.

She arrived on a horse-drawn carriage accompanied by Royal Livery guards, to a red carpet reception, complete with a rendition of the National Anthem by the Royal Yorkshire Military Band.

Queen Elizabeth II is joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who are standing nearby, with all three royals ready for a picture or selfie.

The Queen was just two when her figure was first immortalised in Madame Tussauds in London in 1928. Since then, 23 waxworks of the monarch have been created.
