Madame Tussauds unveiled new wax figures of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for the holidays, and they are exactly as weird as you’d expect.

No, scratch that — they’re weirder.

Unlike most Madame Tussauds wax figures, these are “live,” meaning that they can move around. The live wax masks are donned by actual human actors, who posed in a serious of strange positions for a photo shoot in Berlin this month. If you’re not terrified yet, just wait until you see all the photos.

In the pictures, the wax versions of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wear Christmas sweaters in a room full of holiday decorations.

The vibe is cheerful. But their faces. They’re downright demonic-looking.

Also, Wax Harry keeps clapping his hands together like a maniac, and Wax Meghan’s baby bump has an out-of-place Santa hat on it. At one point, she slumps down in a chair like someone snatched her soul (was it Harry?).

It just gets more and more creepy as the photo shoot goes on. Note to self: Never visit Madame Tussauds in Berlin. It’s probably now haunted.

Earlier this month, Madame Tussauds unveiled its latest wax versions of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The figures are housed at Madame Tussauds in Berlin, and for a photo shot, they displayed a new and improved feature: They moved around and struck various poses.

No, these are not wax figurines come to life (although they look just as creepy).

Instead, actors wore wax masks and dressed up in costume. They then posed for a photo shoot and exhibit.

As you can see, Wax Harry and Wax Meghan struck a series of inexplicable poses for the shoot.

Seriously, what are they doing in these photos? What was the direction here?

If you’re thinking, “Wow, demons ARE real,” you’re not the only one.

The general consensus is that these live wax figures are as creepy as they could possibly be. The world could have easily done without them, thanks.

“The Harry and Meghan live wax figures are back and scarier than ever,” one person tweeted.

“These are going to haunt me in my sleep,” another complained.

As if to make things worse, the museum also sent the live wax demons into the public to get people pumped up for the upcoming exhibit. According to Insider, they went to a Christmas market in Berlin, where people must have peed their pants.

Real question: WHY does Harry keep clapping his hands like that?! Why does Meghan keep passing out on the chair?

OK, I have too many questions to list.

Some people on social media have offered up a theory or two about who these wax figures really are.

Others don’t quite have the words to express their sheer terror.

If you need a palate cleanser, here’s a photo of the Queen’s wax figure, which is comparatively very normal and not scary at all.

Now go look at some puppies or something.
