Madame Tussauds London unveiled a Beyoncé figure that fans fell "Crazy in Love" with, as it bears such a strong resemblance to the 38-year-old singer. 

The work immortalizes Bey's 2018 Coachella performance with the figure clad in a yellow cropped sweatshirt, denim cutoffs and iridescent knee-high boots. 

"It's time to bow down to THE QUEEN," Madame Tussauds declared in an Instagram post debuting the likeness with fist held in the air.

The destination also placed the "Spirit" songstress among their other royal forms including Prince William, Duchess Kate, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan for another picture.

"Take your throne, Queen Bey," the caption read.

According to the destination's website, Beyoncé has taken Queen Elizabeth II's place among the British royals, just for a day.

“Beyoncé is a living legend, rightly crowned Queen Bey by her legions of fans and industry insiders," Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said in a post about the figure. "If anyone is fitting of a claim to The Queen’s spot in our attraction for the very first time, it’s Beyoncé."

"PERIODT. Y'all did THAT," a person remarked. "The artist that made this deserves a raise!"

"Thank you," posted a user. "Finally y'all did her justice"

"Finally a Beyoncé wax figure that doesn’t look like Shakira or Scarlett Johansson," commented another.

In 2017, Madame Tussauds faced criticism for another Beyoncé form, which some felt was whitewashed. In a statement to Entertainment Tonight, the museum originally explained: "Lighting within the attraction combined with flash photography may distort and misrepresent the color of our wax figures..."

Later, the destination told ET in a statement: "We have adjusted the styling and lighting of the figure and she is on display at Madame Tussauds New York.”
