Barbie was given to Queen Elizabeth on her 96th birthday

Queen Elizabeth is getting a Barbie doll in her likeness to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee this year.

Mattel announced on Thursday a Tribute Collection Barbie doll to mark the monarch’s 70 years on the throne.

Elizabeth’s tiara matches the ivory gown and blue sash of the figure.

Elizabeth, who turns 96 on Thursday, succeeded her father King George VI on February 6, 1952. She is Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.

The doll will be offered in Harrods, Selfridges, and Hamleys in London in early June.

Queen Elizabeth is spending her birthday alone at Sandringham, her late husband Prince Philip’s country house in eastern England, according to The Associated Press.

While Thursday’s ceremonies were low-key, public celebrations will be held June 2-5, coinciding with the monarch’s formal anniversary.
