The doll is dressed in ivory complete with a blue sash and a tiara modelled on the one the Queen wore on her wedding day. It costs $75 online.

Queen Elizabeth II is marked her birthday privately, retreating to the Sandringham estate in eastern England that has offered the monarch and her late husband, Prince Philip, a refuge from the affairs of state.

While Thursday’s were low-key, public celebrations will take place June 2-5, when four days of jubilee festivities have been scheduled to coincide with the monarch’s official anniversary.
