As Kate Middleton makes her last public appearance before her big day on April 29, her mini doppelgänger is doing plenty of leg work on behalf of the princess-to-be. Here, the limited-edition Princess Catherine doll, £34.95, is spotted next to London's iconic double-decker bus – not that you'd actually catch Kate riding public transportation.

Ah, the memories! Mini Kate, who made her debut April 7 at London toy store Hamleys and has her very own Facebook page detailing her London whereabouts, visits one of her favorite haunts – Boujis! – in South Kensington. It was here, after all, that the real princess-to-be and Prince William were snapped on a secret date in 2007, following their brief split.

While Kate's official engagement portrait was snapped by fashion photographer Mario Testino inside St. James's Palace, Mini Kate looks equally fetching in this plein air shot outside the stately Tudor building.

What has a decidedly nice ring to it – why, Garrard! Mini Kate pops by the former crown jeweler to the royal family, perhaps to try on some baubles that would complement her iconic Garrard sapphire engagement sparkler.

She's come a long way, baby! Once an accessories buyer for British clothing chain Jigsaw, Mini Kate visits her old stomping grounds in the Duke of York Square on Kings Road in Chelsea.

Mini Kate joins the more than 50,000 visitors from all over the world to pay a visit to Buckingham Palace, where William's granny Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip conduct their royal business. Once she joins the Windsor clan, we imagine Mini Kate can skip the tourist queues and be whisked right in.

Thankfully the royals did away with all manner of beheadings, torture and hangings by the late 18th-century at the Tower of London, where Mini Kate is about to take one of the many guided tours of the historic landmark – perhaps the popular "Dark Tales of the Tower" tour?

After a day of visiting some of her favorite London spots, it's no wonder a windswept Mini Kate heads back to her go-to stylist, Richard Ward, in Chelsea for a touch-up.

Never fear, Mr. Whippy's here! After a long day of popping up throughout London, Mini Kate deserves a treat. Now, will that be with or without sprinkles on that 99 Flake?
