The hat of the 95-year-old was removed for maintenance and the minimal hair that it had was combed. 

Managers of the museum talked about why the queen was bald and said that it is a tactic that allows them to save money.

Dr. Susanne Faerber, the managing partner of the museum, was interviewed by Mail Online about the images.

During the images, Dr. Susanne said:

As we are using real human hair for our waxworks which is very expensive, some figures which have hats don’t have complete hair. We just install the amount of hair which is visible for the visitors.

She was also asked if they thought it was disrespectful to put the bald monarch on display.

Dr. Susanne said that the statue “is a waxwork, not the real person, this should always be kept in mind”. 

She also pointed out that the position of Her Majesty in Germany is different when compared to how she is viewed in Great Britain.
