NEW YORK (CBS) Kate Middleton is joining the royal family in more ways than one.

The 28-year-old is set to marry Prince William next year, and she will also be joining the royals (and other stars) at Madame Tussauds with her own wax figure.

BBC News reports that the famous wax museum will try to book a sitting with the bride-to-be after her nuptials in April.

A Madame Tussauds spokeswoman said, "It looks likely it will be shortly after the wedding and then it takes four months to complete."

The rep added that the sitting itself normally takes "a couple of hours."

As for whether the figure will replicate Middleton's stylish look, the rep said, "It depends on what she wants and whether she can donate clothing."

"We have always had a close working relationship with the palace and everyone from Princess Diana -who gave us her wedding dress - to Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, have sat for us," a spokesperson from the museum told People magazine on Tuesday.

Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Prince Harry are already cast in wax.
