WASHINGTON DC: It's time to bow down as 'Queen Bey' is here to claim her throne! Madame Tussauds London on Thursday unveiled Beyonce's wax figurine standing amidst the British Royals.

On Friday, her statue will be replaced with the Queen's and she will join the figures of her likes including Ed Sheeran, Adele, Rihanna.
"Beyonce is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders. If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen's spot in our attraction for the very first time, it's Beyonce," Entertainment Weekly quoted Steve Davies, general manager at Madame Tussauds London as saying.
"HRH Queen Elizabeth II is famous for her mischievous sense of humour and we think a wry smile will cross her face when she sees that music royalty has temporarily filled her shoes," he explained.
