Queen Camilla is now a Barbie girl.

During Tuesday's Women of the World reception at Buckingham Palace, Queen Camilla, 75, was presented with a one-of-a-king Barbie doll made in her likeness, even dressed in a replica of her elegant ensemble: a stunning blue Fiona Clare dress paired with an Amanda Wakeley coat.

"Thank you very, very much indeed. It's brilliant," Queen Camilla said. "You've taken about 50 years off my life."

She added, "We should all have a Barbie!"

Queen Camilla, who currently serves as the president of WOW, was joined by Dame Helen Mirren, Baroness Doreen Lawrence, Spice Girl Mel B and Dame Kelly Holmes at the event. Also in attendance were the Duchess of Gloucester and Queen Mathilde of Belgium, who wore a bright pink dress paired with tan heels.

During the event, Queen Camilla and Queen Mathilde boarded the WOW Girls Festival Bus, which had been traveling to schools and community centers around England to promote gender equality. The bus featured a recording studio and library and was sponsored by Barbie manufacturer, Mattel.

At the reception, Queen Camilla gave a speech where she recounted a story from May 1914 when two suffragettes broke the palace windows by throwing stones. She said in the address how at the time Queen Mary, wife of King George V, ordered for the stones to be kept.

"I believe they represented hope to the women who threw them – hope that, in the future, they would not be victims of their history, nor of the social and economic forces that were ranged against gender equality," Camilla said, holding up the stones. "Above all, they represented the hope that it was possible."

She continued, "Today, 110 years later, you have been invited into Buckingham Palace because you too represent hope for women in the present and in the future."

Queen Camilla isn't the first royal to be transformed into a doll form.

In April 2022, Queen Elizabeth became a Barbie in honor of her 96th birthday and Platinum Jubilee, which celebrated her historic 70 years on the throne.

The doll was inspired by one of her most iconic looks: an elegant ivory gown and blue ribbon adorned with decorations of order. The doll was also completed with a tiara, similar to the one Queen Elizabeth wore for her wedding to Prince Philip.
