Diana, Princess of Wales, Paper Doll: The Charity Auction Dresses (Dover Royal Paper Dolls) Reviews
I purchased this for my mom, who is a life-long British Royalty fanatic. She absolutely loved it, and appreciated the fact that each dress what historically accurate to what Diana really wore to important events.
Cute but the paper doll was not cardboard. It was paper just like the dresses. I was so disappointed. Will not buy again.
Back when Diana became popular in the early 80's; they had paper dolls of her, Charles, and the kids. This book is paper dolls that reflect dress Diana wore when she was in the royal family. It's not expensive-nice keep sake. If you look at the royal paper dolls of her back in the 80's they have gone up alot so it does appericate in vaule over time.
So I am a Princess Diana fan and have a lot of the books on her style. This had a lot of the dresses I loved from her collection that was sold at Christies. I wouldn't mind one of her day dresses/suits. These are all evening wear.
Loved the paper dolls! Good price, as advertised, and received on time. Thank you
Very pleased with this paperdoll set. My only wish is that it came with two dolls instead of one. But very lovely still.
Lifelike portrait Diana doll, highly detailed gowns and outfits. If you want a Princess Diana paper doll book solely about her, this is the one you should buy.
Beautiful clothes, just like she was.
