Britain’s Queen Elizabeth is being honored with a Barbie doll in her likeness to mark her platinum anniversary this year.
Toy maker Mattel said Thursday it was commemorating the monarch’s 70 years on the throne with a Tribute Collection Barbie doll.
Dressed in an ivory dress with a blue sash decorated with miniature medallions and ribbons, the figure also has a tiara based on the tiara Elizabeth wore on her wedding day.
Elizabeth, who turns 96 on Thursday, ascended to the throne after the death of her father, King George VI, on February 6, 1952. She is the longest-reigning monarch in British history.
The doll will be sold in London stores Harrods, Selfridges and Hamleys ahead of the official platinum anniversary celebrations in early June.
