Kate Middleton Doll for Sale. Really. IN THE NEWS

Jump to Comments

Well, that didn’t take long.  The Franklin Mint is selling Kate Middleton Royal Wedding Doll, complete with a replica wedding gown!   Here’s how the website describes the doll:

Regal Splendor…..Amazing Grace…..Classic Beauty……and a new Princess has been born. On April 29, 2011, as Kate Middleton became Her Royal Highness, the world watched in amazement with the graceful elegance she displayed during that memorable ride to Westminster Abbey and walk down the aisle to marry her Prince.

The Franklin Mint has now captured that magically majestic moment forever with The Kate Middleton Royal Bridal Doll. And because you are one of our most cherished collectors, YOU are the first to see this commemorative doll, in all her splendor and detail.

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 it can be yours for just, ahem — $295!   What do you think?  Is this a worthwhile purchase?
