Barbie debuts Queen Elizabeth II Tribute Collection doll

In celebration of The Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee, Barbie is recognising Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the longest-ruling monarch in British history, with a Tribute Collection Barbie doll made in her likeness.

The Queen Elizabeth II Barbie Doll is instantly recognisable in an elegant ivory gown and blue riband adorned with decorations of order. The tiara is based on Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara – famously worn by The Queen on her wedding day – and miniature medallions on ribbons are inspired by the Royal Family Orders. The pink ribbon was given to The Queen by her father George VI, and the pale blue by her grandfather George V.

The Queen Elizabeth II Barbie Doll is part of Barbie’s Tribute Collection, which was launched last year to celebrate visionaries for their incredible contributions, impact and legacy as trailblazers. It comes presented in a box with a 3D ornate die-cut border which frames the doll, and an inner panel showing a throne and the red carpeting inspired by the palace throne room. The box is printed with a crest-shaped logo and a badge commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne.

The Queen Elizabeth II doll will be sold at Amazon, Harrods, Hamleys, Selfridges and John Lewis from today, April 21, ahead of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on June 2.
