(CBS) Kate Middleton's face has been put on everything from towels to teabags since her engagement to Prince William was announced last November. And now, the future princess also has a Barbie-style doll fashioned in her likeness.

The "Princess Catherine" doll, wearing a blue dress and sporting a mane of brown hair, has gone on sale at London toy store Hamleys, Britain's Daily Mail reported Friday.

The doll comes with a replica of Middleton's gold Eton clutch purse, with a horseshoe clasp and gold chain, and gold heels inspired by British designer Beatrix Ong. It also comes with a purple fascinator - a tribute to Middleton's penchant for distinctive hats and hairpieces.

Middleton's doll retails for 35 pounds (about $57), and just 10,000 of them have been made, according to the report.

Head over to the Daily Mail's article to see pictures of the doll posing in front of London landmarks like Piccadilly Circus, Westminster Abbey (the site of the royal wedding ceremony) and Buckingham Palace.

The real Middleton will marry William on April 29.
