Celebrity, Royal Wedding

No, that's not a life-size wax likeness of Kate Middleton, although one such statue will be unveiled in London's Madame Tussauds post-wedding. This Kate-Middleton-Mini-Me measuring at just 16 inches is a limited edition collectible from The Franklin Mint. Along with a handmade wig and miniature jewelry (notice the tiny sapphire engagement ring), the doll also wears a (pretty spot-on) re-creation of Kate's Issa London blue wrap dress designed by Daniella Issa Helayel.

But this collectible is only for the most devoted of royal watchers. The engagement Kate doll alone is $195, and when paired with the forthcoming wedding-day replica the price racks up to $490. What are the chances the second doll will wear a gown made from a scrap of Kate's actual dress? For more things Kate and Will, check out our Royal Wedding Index page.—Phillip B. Crook
