It has been 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II assumed the throne, marking the longest tenure of service by a British monarch. In honor of this historic achievement and Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, Mattel has launched a particular version Barbie doll on April 21, the queen’s 96th birthday.
Featuring a chic white robe with a fragile floral print, a blue sash, silver jewellery, and naturally, a twinkling crown, the brand new Barbie displays the monarch’s stately type in addition to her royal lineage. The gown, as an illustration, is paying homage to the clothes she wears in her official portraits, and the group of ribbons connected to the sash symbolize the Royal Family Orders. Likewise, the ornate headwear relies on Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara, which Queen Elizabeth wore on her marriage ceremony day. Additionally, the doll comes with a collectible field that appears like Buckingham Palace’s throne room.
This gorgeous figurine is the primary Barbie doll modeled after a dwelling royal. “For fans who may want to keep the doll in her box to preserve its collectible value, the packaging conveys the majesty and importance of the doll within. Inspired by Buckingham Palace, the packaging shows a hint of the throne and the red carpeting inside the palace throne room and features a crest-shaped logo and a badge commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne,” Mattel says.
Mattel launched a particular Platinum Jubilee-edition Barbie doll Queen Elizabeth II celebrating the monarch’s 70 years of service.
