The iconic Barbie doll is honoring another legend — Queen Elizabeth II.
Mattel announced that it will be marking the queen’s 70 years on the throne with their latest Barbie doll, one made in the regent’s image.
The Queen Elizabeth II doll is part of Barbie’s Tribute Collection, BBC News reported. The product line was launched in 2021 with a doll of Lucille Ball and marks “visionary individuals with an outstanding impact and legacy.”
The collectible comes dressed in an ivory gown with a blue sash draped across that holds miniature medallions and ribbons.
A tiara based on the one she wore at her wedding sits atop the doll.
The box includes a 70th-anniversary graphic marking her seven decades on the throne. On the back of the box, it reads, “Barbie celebrates the longest ruling monarch in British history, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, whose extraordinary reign has seen her lead with an immeasurable devotion to duty and a life of service.”
It also includes a quote from the queen — “It’s worth remembering it is often the small steps, not the giant leaps, that bring about the most lasting change.”
The dolls, which were debuted for the queens’ 96th birthday, will be sold in stores such as Harrods, Selfridges and Hamleys before June’s Platinum Jubilee events, Reuters reported. It is also available online.
