These Royal Wedding Dolls of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Getting Major Backlash: Here’s Why
With royal fever in full swing thanks to both Kate Middleton’s pregnancy and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent engagement, enthusiasts are no doubt snapping up all of the memorabilia they can find to commemorate the exciting event. There’s one item in particular they may want to pass over, however: a set of royal wedding dolls that looks nothing like the royal couple.
Sold via the HistoryWearz Etsy shop, New Jersey based artist Shirlee Corsey is offering the duo for $175. Those who have come across the dolls have made a few *pointed* observations in regard to the miniature versions of the famed twosome, however: notably, the fact that the resemblance to their RL counterparts is slim to none.

Not only does Prince Harry appear to be sporting a bowl cut (a style we can’t ever recall seeing him in) in doll form, his ‘do also happens to be a brown-ish shade that’s a far cry from his signature ginger locks. On top of that, the toy features brown eyes where the royal’s are bright blue.
When it comes to mini Meghan Markle, sans for the long dark hair and sleek brows, there’s not really much likeness between the doll and the former actress, either.
Shoppers were unimpressed, to say the least.

I’m not sure which is more unnerving: the Harry and Meghan Dolls themselves, or the fact that people actually want them. pic.twitter.com/5QkZVIgHfK

I think the Harry doll has borrowed Lord Farquad's (from Shrek) hair pic.twitter.com/QSApAwTvxl
