EXCERPTED INFO: “...The Duke and Duchess are each represented by two dolls. The Duke’s 14 costumes include his most impressive uniforms and robes of state, among them those he wore for his investiture as Prince of Wales and as Royal Commander of the Guards. Here, too, are his Royal Navy and Bengal Lancer ceremonial uniforms, his elegant attire for the races, his finely tailored suits and casual wear, and, of course, the omnipresent Windsor knot, which he originated. The 14 costumes for the Duchess include the gown she wore for presentation at Court in 1934; dresses she wore on her honeymoon in Venice and Austria; gowns by Mainbocher, Chanel and Dior; and casual attire. All are fully accessorized, including selections from the Duchess’s celebrated jewels. Her costumes and those of the Duke, are classic examples of French couture and British tailoring in their finest hour.”
