We’re just eight days away from the biggest wedding of the year but fans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been left baffled by a new Lego exhibition of the couple.

Legoland Windsor unveiled their new royal wedding scene this week, which features a massive Windsor Castle replica, as well as royal family and wedding guests Lego figures and tiny Meghan Markle and Prince Harry replicas.

However, royal fans on Twitter have blasted the exhibition over the colour they chose for 36-year-old Mghan Markle’s skin.

“To celebrate HRH Prince Harry & Ms. Meghan Markle’s wedding we proudly announce the creation of our very own LEGO Windsor Castle and #RoyalWedding scene,” the tweet from Legoland Windsor read.

People were quick to repond, with one person simply asking: “Why is the bride white?” and another person saying: “I mean really?”

“Why is Meghan white tho?” another person commented.

Others thought the exhibition looked ‘wonderful’ and some said they couldn’t wait to go visit it.

According to Lego Windsor, It’s the first time they have ever created a permanent building specifically to celebrate a royal event.

The exhibition is made up of 39,960 Lego bricks and took 592 hours to build.

It was unveiled just days before the loved-up royal couple are due to walk down the aisle and say ‘I do’.

The world will be glued to their TV screens on May 19th when Meghan Markle arrives at Windsor Castle with her mother Doria Ragland.
