Queen Camilla honored with Barbie doll: ‘You’ve taken about 50 years off my life’

Queen Camilla just got the Barbie treatment.

During a reception for the Women of the World Foundation’s International Women’s Day celebration at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, Camilla, 76, was presented with the doll. The doll was a spitting mini-image of the queen, sporting the same royal blue dress and WOW badge on the black cape draped over her shoulders.

The queen was honored with the doll for her work as president of the foundation, which promotes gender equality and equity, and celebrates the accomplishments of women and girls through festivals, events and programming. The International Women’s Day event also marked the end of the WOW Girls Festival bus tour.

Other celebrities at the event included Helen Mirren, Spice Girl Mel B and her daughter, Phoenix Brown.

Camilla shared her delight over the doll in a video by Sky News. “You’ve taken about 50 years off my life,” she said. “We should all have a Barbie.”

Queen Camilla joins a list of stars who have recently gotten the Barbie treatment, including Mariah Carey, Stevie Nicks and Shania Twain. Twain is part of a star-studded Global Role Model Lineup, including Viola Davis, Kylie Minogue and Mirren, which spotlights groundbreaking women with one-of-a-kind commemorative Barbies.

The role model doll, an emblem of Mattel’s highest honor, is not available for purchase. Mattel celebrated the doll’s 65th anniversary last month.

Camilla honored amid tumultuous time for royal family
Camilla also seemed unfazed despite the tumultuous happenings of the royal family.

The queen has remained strong amid King Charles III’s cancer battle, which Buckingham Palace confirmed on Feb. 5 that he was diagnosed with “a form of cancer.” He was recently hospitalized and underwent a procedure for benign prostate enlargement, and the cancer was identified via diagnostic tests after a “separate issue of concern was noted.”

The king has appeared publicly since the diagnosis, telling U.K. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak in a meeting at the palace last month that he’s received “so many wonderful messages and cards. It’s reduced me to tears most of the time.”
The outing also comes as daughter-in-law Princess Kate is embroiled in controversy after a photo shared on the Prince and Princess of Wales’ Instagram account was found to have been photoshopped by several major photo agencies. The image and subsequent apology have escalated existing speculation and media backlash around the royal family member, who has been seen few times since her abdominal surgery in January.
