Cape Town – Queen Bey has finally taken her seat on the throne – well, sort of.

On Thursday Madame Tussauds London unveiled their new display of the royal family with one major change – Beyoncé on centre stage instead of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.

In a statement, they wrote, "Guests at Madame Tussauds London will see a whole new Royal Formation."

It was a one-day-only thing with Beyoncé new wax figure making her first appearance, dressed in the outfit she wore for her Coachella 2018 performance in her iconic Run the World power pose.

"We decided the only fitting way to laud official music royalty is to position her on the most regal of all stages alongside her Royal pals, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex," Madame Tussauds explained.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z met the royals for the first time at the premiere of The Lion King in July. The couples discussed Archie and shared parenting advice.

"The best advice I can give you, always find time for yourself," Jay-Z told Prince Harry.

Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said, "HRH Queen Elizabeth II is famous for her mischievous sense of humour and we think a wry smile will cross her face when she sees that music royalty has temporarily filled her shoes. In the words of Beyoncé herself, Her Majesty is most definitely 'irreplaceable' so Queen Bey will take her spot for one day only before her figure moves to own our music stage."
