Take a peek at Harry and Meghan dolls
Here’s something for those who live and breathe royals. The Ashton-Drake Galleries has introduced the Meghan, Royal Princess Bride and Harry, Royal Romance Groom Collector’s Editions.
The dolls can be viewed and pre-ordered online. The dolls were unveiled on Ashton-Drake’s website hours after the wedding.
Weeks before the wedding, master doll artisans began sculpting authentic likenesses of the couple. Crafted of fine bisque porcelain and hand-painted, the dolls are impressively sized and created to scale. The finest fabrics were procured in advance so that as the wedding was being broadcast, seamstresses had everything they needed to design representations of the bride and groom's attire.
“Everyone in the division was on site and working by 5 a.m. when William and Catherine were married, and we did the same thing the morning of May 19th. There was so much excitement and enthusiasm, it was a lot of fun to be part of it,” said Karen Cox, vice president of Ashton-Drake. “I'll never forget the first sighting of Meghan in her wedding dress. So classic and elegant, she looked stunning walking up the steps of St. George's Chapel as the adorable attendants held her long veil. Meghan and Harry captivated all of us with their fairy-tale wedding, and it's that magic we want people to feel when they see our dolls.”
The dolls cost $159.99. Pre-order and watch a video of the dolls’ creation at ashtondrake.com.
