LONDON, July 30 (Reuters) - Madame Tussauds' most famous
figures led by example and formed a socially distanced queue
outside the soon-to-be reopened wax museum on Thursday, with
Queen Elizabeth leading the way followed by British Prime
Minister Boris Johnson then musician Taylor Swift.
Britain's Prince Harry and his wife Meghan followed, with
U.S. President Donald Trump behind them.
One of London's most loved tourist attractions, Madame
Tussauds closed its doors on March 20 and will allow visitors
again from Saturday, August 1.
Strict social distancing measures will be in place to ensure
the safety of guests and staff, said the general manager of
Madame Tussauds London, Tim Waters.
"We're encouraging guests to wear their facemasks when they
come into the building. There'll be temperature checks as they
enter as well. And they'll be able to see our staff who are
wearing facemasks as well," he said.
"We've also limited capacity to ensure that we can make sure
that there's social distancing as we go through the attraction."
The wax figures of Trump and Johnson were the only famous
faces sporting masks in the star-studded queue.
