With one of the most watched weddings of all time wearing possibly the most copied and famous wedding dress ever, toy company Arklu has capitalised on the wedding of Kate and Will.
The dolls can be purchased as a pair for $99.95
According to the website, for every unit sold £1 will be donated to the RNLI, to reflect the fact that the Royal Couple’s first joint official public engagement was the launch of a lifeboat at the RNLI base at Trearddur Bay, in Anglesey, North Wales.
According to the website The “Catherine Wedding Doll has been individually designed to showcase the very best of British style, combining tradition with sophisticated modernity”
The website describes each piece on the doll in detail:
The wedding dress: The Arklu™ Princess Catherine Wedding Doll dress design is inspired by, and pays homage to, the original wedding dress. This is a dress that “epitomises timeless British craftsmanship, combining tradition and modernity with a distinctive, contemporary and feminine character”.
Earrings: The Princess Catherine Doll wears stunning ear-rings in the style of those created for Catherine Middleton’s wedding day by leading boutique jeweller Robinson Pelham.
Tiara: Just as eye-catching as the original, the tiara has been designed by Dower & Hall, the creators of exceptional British designer jewellery.
Engagement ring: The Princess Catherine Wedding Doll’s ring is inspired by Kate Middleton’s engagement ring, which was originally Princess Diana’s. The doll’s Io Ring boasts a replica purple Amethyst central stone set amongst 24 brilliant-cut replica diamante cubic zirconias. It has been created by award-winning British jewellery designer Babette Wasserman.
Wedding ring: A kilogram of pure Clogau Welsh gold was donated to The Royal Family in 1923 and has since been used to create generations of Royal Family wedding rings, including those of The Queen, The Queen Mother and Princess Diana. The marriage between Prince William and Catherine ensured the 88-year continuation of this tradition by choosing a pure Welsh gold wedding band. The doll’s gold-coloured wedding band evokes this tradition.
Bridal bouquet: Florist to the stars and royalty, Judith Blacklock has created a bridal bouquet for the Princess Catherine Wedding Doll. The bouquet offers another British touch as it is evocative of the delicate and understated shield-shaped wired bouquet of seasonal British flowers, especially lily-of-the-valley, carried by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
‘Something Blue’ knickers: The award-winning Gilda & Pearl creates vintage-inspired lingerie to love. The “Something Blue” knickers are a sweet and lovely child-like version and feature the acclaimed British designer’s signature ribbons and attention to detail.
Shoes: Luxury British shoe designer Aruna Seth has created the perfect shoes with replica crystal-embellished heels, fit for a wedding day princess.
Hair: HRH Catherine’s bridal hair is inspired by the Demi-Chignon hairstyle created by the Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa salon team; “an up-do style, which combines a classic bridal look with a regal, couture finish”.
Make-up: Louise Constad is the make-up artist of choice for many of the world’s most beautiful women and high-profile celebrities, so who better to add the finishing touches to the beautiful Princess Catherine Wedding Doll?
