I am not sure that Princess Catherine Doll is back but she has been found again. An absolute standout on Page 7 of a Google search for British Designers before 2015.
Several of Britain’s best-known fashion designers got together to make the Princess Catherine Doll, a unique and highly collectable toy that shows off British style.
The Princess Catherine Doll is made to look like Catherine “Kate” Middleton, right down to the Eaton clutch bag, fascinator, and shoes. It oozes British style and shows the country’s natural attention to detail.
Some people might say that the Princess Catherine Doll is a little strange or even kitsch, but being odd is also a very British thing to do!
Only 10,000 made
The Princess Catherine Engagement Doll is expected to be a must-have for Royal Wedding collectors because only 10,000 were made.
There’s also no doubt that kids will want a doll that they can dress up to look like a real princess.
A spokesperson for Champions of British StyleTM, Lucie Follett, said, “Kate’s outfits have been scrutinised in the fashion world since she became famous and after she got engaged to Prince William.
True British Style
Attention to detail and a truly luxurious British style go into the Princess Catherine Doll.
The Princess Catherine Doll has been dressed and accessorised by seven British fashion and design leaders.
Pussy Willow, a London-based design company, made The Catherine Dress in the style of their simple, elegant cuts that are shaped to the body.
The blue dress has a tight waist, ruched pleating at the shoulders, and a deep “V” at the front and back. The dress also has a bright pink Pussy Willow couture label that was made just for it.
The award-winning Katherine Elizabeth Millinery is the only company to make the Bucklebury Fascinator. It is named after the Berkshire village where Catherine “Kate” Middleton lives. With its bright fuchsia colour and intricate lattice-work design, it shows Kate’s love for wearing fascinators to Society events, which has been well-documented.
Princess Catherine Doll Ring
The Princess Catherine Doll ring is a tribute to Kate Middleton’s engagement ring, which used to belong to Princess Diana. The Io Ring on the doll has a purple Amethyst stone in the middle. It is made of sterling silver that has been plated with rose gold, and it is set with 24 brilliant-cut cubic zirconias. It was made by British jewellery designer Babette Wasserman, who has won awards for her work.
Catherine Middleton loves the Eaton Clutch Bag, and she has been seen with it many times. It is made by the up-and-coming British luxury goods brand Aspinal of London and has a charming handmade look. The Princess Catherine Doll looks like a real person because the Eaton Clutch Bag is an exact copy. Its gold faux snakeskin look, horseshoe clasp, and gold chain add to its authentic look.
Beatrix Ong Shoes
The Princess Catherine Doll high-heeled slingback shoes have details like the buckle, pale gold colour, and glitter effect that are typical of top British shoe designer Beatrix Ong’s style. Beatrix Ong shoes are known all over the world for being new and stylish, versatile and classic, and always easy to wear. On the inside of the doll’s shoe is a tiny Beatrix Ong label.
Many of the world’s most beautiful women and famous people choose Louise Constad as their makeup artist, so who better to put the finishing touches on the beautiful Princess Catherine Doll?
Prince William met his future wife in Scotland. In honour of this event, the inside of the Princess Catherine Doll box has a print of Harris Tweed, a high-end Scottish cloth that has a long history of being made by hand and has long been a favourite of royalty. Kate Middleton has been seen wearing Harris Tweed jackets a lot, so it’s clear that she also likes them.
