These two lifelike wax figures have attracted many tourists to take photos with the handsome “Beckham” and the mysterious “guard”.
The guard in front of the Buckingham Palace with fur hats in head carrying the musket is full of great momentum of British royal family, while the soccer player Beckham who has superior footwork is the pride of the British. The two wax figures from Madame Tussauds were displayed in British Pavilion, so that visitors can experience the feeling as if they were in the native of England personally and have the opportunity to see the charm of super star without distance.
It is reported that the wax figure of David Beckham exhibited in the Pavilion is to replace the wax figure of Rooney which was displayed there two weeks before. It will station at the British Pavilion during the World Cup, and then will return to Shanghai Madame Tussauds. The “guard” was specifically borrowed from Madame Tussauds, which will station in the British Pavilion until the end of Expo 2010.
