Queen Elizabeth II has got her own Barbie in honor of her 96th birthday and Platinum Jubilee. California-based toymaker Mattel released the doll on the monarch’s birthday in commemoration of her 70 years of service, which will be celebrated beginning on June 2. The limited-edition doll priced online at USD 75 has the monarch’s likeness dressed in an ivory gown with details drawn from the Queen’s past. It features a tiara modelled on her ancestor Queen Mary’s fringe tiara, which Queen Elizabeth II wore on her own wedding day. A pink ribbon imitates one given to a young Elizabeth by her father George VI, and a pale blue imitates one from her grandfather George V. Queen Elizabeth II is marking her birthday privately, retreating to the Sandringham estate in eastern England that has offered the monarch and her late husband, Prince Philip, a refuge from the affairs of state. The actual date of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee was February 6, 2022, but plans had been made to celebrate the event in June. The Queen’s 96th birthday will be formally celebrated as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, a big royal milestone for the country’s longest-serving monarch. It will be made up of a four-day weekend from June 2 to June 5 and will include the Queen opening her private estate grounds for public visits and some of the world’s biggest stars performing outside Buckingham Palace in London.
