The Duchess of Cambridge will join her prince when she becomes immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds this spring, not once but four times.

Such is the popularity of the duchess and her enviable wardrobe, that the world famous waxwork attraction has decided to make four models of Kate, three of which will be unveiled simultaneously on April 4.

Making her debut alongside Prince William, she'll be wearing the iconic blue Issa engagement dress in London; in New York, the lilac Alexander McQueen frock from the BAFTA gala in Los Angeles; and, in Amsterdam, the black lace Temperley dress she wore to the London premiere of War Horse. A final waxwork will be unveiled at the U.K.'s Blackpool exhibition at a later date in April, for which she will be wearing Jenny Packham.

"It is the first time that we have had a member of the royal family make their debut in multiple locations," a rep for Madame Tussauds tells PEOPLE, adding, "all four designers have been involved in making the dresses and the Duke and Duchess have kept informed at every stage of the creation process."



The first ever member of the royal family to be immortalized in wax was William IV, who was monarch when Madame Tussauds first opened on London's Baker Street in 1835.
