Kate Middleton is a doll. Of course, most everyone who has met the soon-to-be princess says she is. But in reality, she is really and truly a doll--one that is manufactured by the Franklin Royal Mint.
According to a report from RadarOnline, the Franklin Royal Mint announced on Wednesday that the doll has been created, and that only 5,000 of them will be released for sale.
The doll is made in the likeness of Middleton, with long brown hair and her pretty smile, and is called, of course, the Kate Middleton Doll. She is wearing a royal blue dress made by Issa, and has tiny replica jewels, too, including her engagement ring with simulated sapphires. She also wears earrings and a necklace.
If you plan to buy a Kate Middleton Doll, be prepared to spend some money. Although she is made much the same as a Barbie Doll, Kate Middleton will set you back about $195. Of course, the doll will be accompanied by a display stand and official certificate of authenticity.
Doll collectors or people who collect royalty memorabilia will probably be clamoring to purchase one of the 5,000 Kate Middleton Dolls for their collections. It is doubtful, however, that too many people will be buying them solely for their little girls to play with.
People can pre-order the Kate Middleton Doll now, but it won't be released until after she and Prince William have taken their wedding vows, on April 29.
