The Queen Elizabeth II has been transformed into a Barbie doll for her Platinum Jubilee by toymaker Mattel, to commemorate her 70 years on the throne. The doll features details drawn from the monarch’s past. It is dressed in an ivory gown with blue ribbon and wears a recreation of the tiara worn by the Queen on her wedding day. „Queen Elizabeth II’s reign has been one of extraordinary impact, holding a position that few women have. The longest-reigning British monarch, and the first to reach a Platinum Jubilee, The Queen has dedicated herself to service and duty and seen the world change immeasurably,” (…) As Her Majesty celebrates this milestone jubilee it is wonderful to see an iconic brand like Barbie share important historical female figures impact as leaders, creators and pioneers to new generations,” Historian and Professor Kate Williams, author of Our Queen Elizabeth, said. Barbie’s Tribute Series launched last year, with the first doll in the collection paying tribute to iconic actress Lucille Ball.
