The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are coming to Washington. Now that we’ve got your attention, here’s the less dramatic news: It will be as wax figures at Madame Tussauds, and the exhibit will not include a wax version of baby Prince George. At least not for now.

Mom and Dad will be unveiled next Thursday, September 12, at the attraction on F Street, Northwest, by the British Embassy’s deputy ambassador, Patrick Davies.

How will the royal couple be dressed? According to Madame Tussauds, Catherine’s likeness (sans baby bump) will wear “an exact copy of the one-of-a-kind pale lilac Alexander McQueen gown that she wore to the BAFTA Brits to Watch event in Los Angeles in July 2011,” and Prince William will be decked out in a “debonair” navy suit.

The royal couple will join wax interpretations of Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Tiger Woods, Justin Bieber, Stephen Colbert, and all 44 US presidents.
