Now you can have the next best thing to a selfie with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Madame Tussauds, the arbiter and company behind Hollywood’s most iconic wax figures, just unveiled two new renditions of Harry and Meghan to appear in its London and New York City outposts. The figures, revealed on Wednesday, May 9, look remarkably similar to the bride and groom, who are set to wed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on May 19.

The Harry replica–a bearded version–stands tall in a navy suit complete with a matching tie and a white shirt. This isn’t Prince Harry’s first wax figure, as he already made his debut as part of the royal family unveiling back in 2014.

The real attraction now, though, is the addition of his soon-to-be wife Markle of Suits fame. The Meghan wax figure wears her iconic moss green dress by P.A.R.O.S.H., which she wore during the couple’s engagement announcement. Markle pulled a white coat over the piece at the time for the photo call, but later showed off her complete outfit during a sit-down interview with BBC News.

The initial wax figures are at the London location of Madame Tussauds. The New York City location released a separate replica with Markle in a different dress. The big reveal was shared on the Today show on Wednesday morning.

Madame Tussauds teased the wax figures back in March. “Meghan Markle has captured the hearts and imaginations of people all around the world,” Christine Haughney, ‎the Regional Head of Marketing at Merlin Entertainments, said at the time. “We’re so excited to give our fans the chance to ‘meet’ their ‘American Princess’ and celebrate the Royal Wedding this Spring.”

Watch the big reveal above, and highlights from the actual couple’s first sit-down interview.
