The Kate Collector’s Doll Is Here! Eat Your Heart Out Barbie!
We are just 50 days away from Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s big day, but the never-ending amounts of royal wedding loot just keeps expanding. Thanks to the easy accessibility of the internet, most everyone has a chance to indulge in this merry occasion.
If the “KaTEA” bags (or sick bag?) or “No More Waity, Katie” nail polish aren’t your thing, perhaps Franklin Mint has the appropriate royal wedding item for your collection: a Kate royal engagement doll.
The limited edition 16-inch doll is decked in a replica royal blue Issa dress that Kate made famous during her and William’s royal engagement announcement last November. Kate’s gorgeous brown tresses are just right, too. Only 5,000 dolls have been made, so act fast and pony up $195 (£120).
For the ultra fans out there, a royal wedding doll will be available sometime this summer for the combined price of $490 (£302). And if you just can’t get enough, Franklin Mint does have quite the selection of Princess Diana dolls.
“Our Princess Diana collection is probably the largest audience we’ve ever had,” Franklin Mint Chief Marketing Officer Gwynne Gorr told CNN. “The doll collectors for that are embracing Kate Middleton with the same zeal they had for her. But Kate Middleton is a breath of fresh air.”
