The Real Reason Waxwork Of Queen Is Bald Underneath Her Hat

A waxwork museum in Germany has created a replica of the Queen, but people are baffled over her bald head.

The wax model, on display at museum Panoptikum, portrays the Queen in a pink suit, complete with pink hat. And it looks just like Her Majesty, except for the fact the model has no hair underneath the hat.

So why does the model have a bald patch?!

Well, Dr Susanne Faerber, managing partner of the museum explained all.

"As we are using real human hair for our waxworks which is very expensive, some figures which have hats don’t have complete hair,’ she told the Daily Mail.

"We just install the amount of hair which is visible for the visitors."

When she was asked if it was disrespectful to the Queen, she responded: "It is a waxwork, not the real person, this should always be kept in mind.

"Besides, the position of Her Majesty is in Germany different than the handling of the royal family in Great Britain, where the press have to be more sensitive dealing with them."

The museum reopened to the public this week after closing throughout January for renovations, which see the waxwork models cleaned, their hair washed, clothes specially dry cleaned and any damage repaired.

Ahead of its opening, the tourist attraction showed a look behind the scenes on Facebook, detailing exactly what goes on when the museum is closed.

In the posts, the waxwork figures can be seen being cleaned and vacuumed, while some could even be seen wearing rollers to perfect their hair.

The museum - which is located in Hamburg - has more than 120 waxwork models, including Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Greta Thunberg.
