It was really only a matter of time. And sure enough, in the current issue of Parade was the full-page ad from the Danbury Mint featuring the Princess Kate Bride Doll. She looks radiant. Her smile is beaming. And for only $159 (plus shipping and handling) you can have her all to yourself!

On the other hand, collectors may have reason to avoid this purchase. For one thing, according to the ad, "the details of her bridal gown remain a royal secret," so what you will have in your hands is an artist's rendering. I was also disappointed to learn it isn't life-size.
