Why stop at one Kate Middleton doll?

Three weeks after the Franklin Mint unveiled its Kate collectible, the Princess Catherine Doll has made her debut.

And this doll’s been shopping.

Champions of British style debuted their dolls this week after photographing them out and about at several of the real Kate’s favorite London haunts – a fitting move, considering who dressed the doll in the first place.

The Princess Catherine doll (which retails for 34.95 British pounds, or about $57 U.S. – a portion benefits the British charity Help for Heroes) comes accessorized from head to toe. Her wares include a fascinator designed by Katherine Elizabeth Millinery, the Eaton Clutch bag by Aspinal of London and chic gold sling backs by Beatrix Ong.

Wonder what she bought at Harrods …
