The Kate Middleton Bridal Doll

While you were enjoying your weekend, the Franklin Mint was hard at work making the official Kate Middleton Royal Bridal Doll, available now for pre-order at $295. You will be relieved to know that:

Nothing has been overlooked. From the sparkling Scroll Tiara loaned to her by the Queen, first presented to the Queen Mother by George the VI in 1936 to the delicately hand-applied floral laces on her bodice to the amazing satin train, every element defining those precious moments in time can now be yours. She even wears both rings; the sapphire engagement in the hand holding her lovely bouquet and her new wedding band, securely fit on her left.

And although there's only one review so far — which is fair, as the dolls won't ship until summer 2011 — it's a positive one.

I don't know what I would do without this splendid memory of the best day of my life. I will dress up every day with what I wore as I watched the wedding with my precious kate doll! BEST USES: Daily worship.

Oh my god, I really wish I were creepy enough to buy this doll. I don't think I'm quite there yet. But it's something to aspire to.

Whoever did the description in grey got it wrong. Kate wore the Halo Tiara, which was a present to then Princess Elizabeth on her 18th birthday.

@Jillian T.@twitter Half n' half: It is the Halo tiara - but it was originally commissioned in 1936 by George VI for Elizabeth (The Queen mother) who in turn gave it to Princess Elizabeth on her 18th birthday in 1946.


Bonus: Doll is scaled down, but bouquet is actual size!


Poor Mr. Franklin. I'm glad he never knew his legacy would be this. This and kites.


I want to be friends with Trevor the Brilliant from Bath.


EZ, was that review really written by you?


@Vivien Smith-Smythe-Smith That's what I'm choosing to believe.

The real dress didn't have that tacky shit at the bottom, did it?


@manshan: Yes, but it was much less noticeable - and a lot less tacky - in real life.


I'm not buying it unless I get a BOGO deal with Pippa thrown in.

@dabbyfanny Agreed!

It's weird that this barbie's waist isn't small enough to be fully realistic.
