Kate Middleton – the doll

Isn’t it thought that when a doll is made in the image of a newly-minted celebrity, then the celebrity has well and truly made it?

I’m sure Kate Middleton is in no doubt that she’s made it! But if you’re like me and wanting to spread that Royal Wedding 2011 joy a little further, secure a limited edition Princess Catherine Engagement Doll.

A host of British designers have collaborated on everything from Kate’s make-up to her shoes – no detail has been overlooked for this doll. I particularly like the sensational Beatrix Ong gold shoes and the Katherine Elizabeth Millinery ‘Bucklebury Fascinator’ (named for the Berkshire village and home of Kate).  Thankfully the Babette Wasserman Io Ring is a genuine purple amethyst made from sterling silver, plated with rose gold and set amongst twenty-four brilliant-cut cubic zirconias – the detail allows me to get over the fact that it’s not a sapphire (as per Kate’s engagement ring).

The Princess Catherine Engagement Doll is available exclusively in Australia at Monkey Caboose for $69.95.
