Queen Elizabeth’s historic Platinum Jubilee is to be commemorated by the Barbie brand with the creation of an honorary doll in her image.

The Queen Elizabeth II Barbie, released on the Queen’s 96th birthday on Thursday, will be “instantly recognisable”, fitted with an ivory gown and blue ribbon adorned with decorations of order.

It will also feature a tiara modelled on Queen Mary’s fringe tiara, which the Queen wore on her wedding day.

The pink ribbon on the doll imitates one given to the Queen by her father George VI, and the pale blue imitates one from her grandfather George V.

The doll will be part of Barbie’s Tribute Collection, which was launched last year in celebration of “visionary individuals with an outstanding impact and legacy within society”.

It is presented in a box inspired by the styles of Buckingham Palace, made from a 3D ornate die-cut border framing the figure, and an inner panel showing the throne and the red carpet of the throne room.
