Kate Middleton doll goes on sale

Kate Middleton doll goes on sale :

A doll modelled on Kate Middleton has gone on sale in London's famous toy store Hamleys.

The limited edition Princess Catherine Engagement Doll by Arklu, is fashioned to resemble Prince William's fiancée and features her famous blue Issa dress.

On sale for £35, the toy is on the expensive side, but the designers have at least managed to make the doll resemble Middleton more than the Royal Mint's commemorative £5 coin.

Lucie Follett, director of Artklu, said: "The British fashion industry contributes 22 billion pounds to the UK economy.

"That's a big figure so in some senses what we're doing here is promoting British designers and put them out there and say hey it's all about British style and that explains the brand's name which is Champions of British Style."
