Many experts say that the above price will increase even more when the Platinum festival, a series of monumental events to celebrate the Queen’s 70th year on the throne takes place everywhere in early June.
Why is the Queen of England doll so hot?
This Barbie doll was released on the occasion of the Queen’s 96th birthday in April. Only 20,000 products were sold in the market. This is a limited edition, rare and hard to find, so the product is even more sought after by royal fans.
The Queen Elizabeth II version of the Barbie doll depicts the head of the royal family wearing an ivory evening gown and sparkling silver hair. The limited edition doll’s regal look is made perfect with a crown designed based on a treasure called Fringe.
This is the tiara that originally belonged to Queen Mary, later worn by the Queen of England at her wedding to Prince Philip, among other accessories. The product was born to mark the most memorable historical milestone of the Queen of England, so its value has been doubled.

Historian and lecturer Kate Williams, author of Our Queen Elizabeth, says: “The reign of Queen Elizabeth II was phenomenally influential, playing a role very few women have. As Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, the first to celebrate Platinum, the Queen paid tribute. devote himself to serving, working, and seeing the world change dramatically.
In 1952, when the Queen ascended the throne, women were not encouraged to take on this role.
