Small figurines of the British royal family show the Duke and Duchess of Sussex present at Windsor Castle following the coronation of King Charles as the royals are reunited in miniature.
Based in Torquay, Devon, Babbacombe Model Village has built a small coronation scene showing King Charles and Queen Camilla being led through the streets of Windsor as part of a royal procession after the coronation.
The scene, designed by artist Wayne Stott, who is pictured putting the finishing touches on his mini royals, features dozens of six-thumb figurines — including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The tiny replica of Meghan appears to be dressed in the outfit she wore when the couple were last seen in public at the Windsor Estate just after Queen Elizabeth died.
The couple walked out to greet royal fans who had gathered to offer their condolences following the monarch’s death at the age of 96 in September 2022.

Elsewhere among the figurines, King Charles and Queen Camilla have a post-coronation glow as they sit in a horse-drawn carriage clad in red and painted gold.
They drive past a grand (though much smaller) Windsor Castle along the way, which is filled with royal fans.
A series of Union Jack flags hang above them to celebrate the crowning of the King and Queen.
Babbacombe Model Village spokesman Mike Rhodes said: ‘Everything you see in the Model Village, from the model buildings to the miniature people, must have been handcrafted and it took about three months to create this exhibit.

As always with Babbacombe Model Village, touches of humor are added to the scene – along with a surprise visitor.
“The scene can be seen until the end of June.”
Harry and Meghan’s ‘reunion’ with the royals comes after the Sussexes confirmed that Prince Harry will attend his father’s coronation next month, but Meghan will stay home in California with the kids.
Buckingham Palace confirmed earlier this month: ‘Buckingham Palace are pleased to confirm that the Duke of Sussex will attend the coronation service at Westminster Abbey on 6 May.
“The Duchess of Sussex will stay in California with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.”
Charles will be crowned in a ceremony full of splendor and traditions stretching back 1,000 years, following the 70-year reign of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who died last September.
Omid Scobie, a trusted contact of the Sussexes, tweeted the news of Harry’s imminent presence, adding: “I understand Archie’s fourth birthday (also May 6) played a part in the couple’s decision.
“Expect it to be a fairly quick trip to the UK for Prince Harry, who will only attend the coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey.”
Elsewhere, toy brand Matchbox has released CGI images of its own little royal replicas in honor of the coronation.
The small model is a 1:64 scale replica of the 261-year-old carriage that will carry the newly crowned king and queen consort in a grand procession to Buckingham Palace on May 6.
