William and Kate invited to Legoland to mark Windsor move
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been invited to meet their Lego lookalikes to celebrate their move to Windsor.
Legoland Windsor Resort has unveiled new Lego miniature models of William and Kate and their three children, showcasing a Royal Removal service to celebrate the news of their move to Adelaide Cottage next month.
William, Kate, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and dog Orla will be on display unpacking their Lego brick furniture.
Legoland model maker Will Metcalfe hopes the family can one day meet their miniature likenesses.
“If possible, we would like them to come, the members of the royal family, to pick up and meet in Lego,” he said.
“I think it would be pretty fun for them!”
The Cambridges are seeking a country life away from their official residence, Kensington Palace in west London, in a bid to put their children first and give them more freedom.
The Queen gave them permission to rent the four-bedroom 19th-century cottage, which belongs to the Crown Estate.
It was built for Queen Adelaide in 1831 and is a 10-minute walk from Windsor Castle in the private Home Park.
The move-in scene – which was built using 4,100 Lego bricks and took 19 hours to create – can be seen in the resort’s Miniland attraction from September until late autumn.
The figures will be placed outside the brick-built Lego creation of Windsor Castle, which includes 39,000 pieces.
Paula Laughton, Head Modeler at Legoland Windsor Resort, said: “The resort has always had a special connection with the Royal Family, so to welcome our new neighbours, our talented modelers are giving the Royal Family a housewarming gift in recreating the family in miniature.
“The Royal Removal scene will be on display throughout September, and we hope to welcome the Duke and Duchess and their family to the station to see their characters very soon.”
