A Truly Royal Doll

Move over Barbie – the future Queen of England has been turned into a doll.
The Kate Middleton Royal Engagement Vinyl Portrait Doll, which comes complete with the blue dress she wore to the public announcement of her engagement to Prince William, as well as a miniature replica of her necklace, earrings and engagement ring, is being sold for a whopping $195 (£120).

The Franklin Mint – the same US collectables company that won a multi-million pound lawsuit against the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, in 2004 – is only issuing 5,000 of the figurines worldwide, with a portion of the proceeds from sales going to charity.

Collectors can also pre-order a Portrait of a Princess Kate Middleton Bridal Doll, in full wedding attire, which will be released after the royal couple’s big day on 29 April.
