A batch of fake Duchess Kate Middleton dolls have been seized on their way into the UK because they contain chemicals which can cause cancer.

The children’s toy, dubbed the ‘Princess Catherine Doll’, allegedly has dangerous levels of the compound DEHP, reports Daily Mail.

Fears that parents may have already bought the doll, which is supposed to resemble the Duchess of Cambridge, as children’s Christmas presents.

The dolls have flowing dark hair and are wearing a gold metallic sequined gown.

Officials have voiced concern that children who are unknowingly gifted the toy by parents or relatives may chew the dolls or suck their hands after playing with it.

Other risks include the possibility that it could make the children infertile later in life and is therefore banned in all child-related products.

If you have a little Duchess fan please do not buy them this doll!

  • This is a real worry, thanks for the update!


  • Good to see them removed from the market. These dolls don’t look anywhere near to Kate Middleton ;)


  • So pleased they were seized coming in to the UK. Problem might be if anyone sourced the doll online.


  • I’m also concerned they may be able to pull bits off or chew the tiara.


  • Cheap often means cutting corners – sometimes dangerous ones.


  • This is terrible for the kids… Hope there isn’t anymore roaming around the toy stores


  • That’s not good, I hope people return them as soon as possible


  • I hope no-one bought this doll. Who would make this doll and try to sell it to children are sickos. To think it could do this to children is disgusting.


  • Good information and sharing. The more people that know the better … do not buy this doll!!


  • Ew hope that’s the only toy they produced.


  • Oh my goodness, how do any company make these products knowing the possible health concerns. I just can’t fathom how they can live with themselves.


  • How terrible these harmful chemicals end up in children’s products!


  • It’s a dreadful replica anyway. i don’t know that many people would even buy it!


  • Thankfully it was stopped! The dolls dress looks cheap and nasty too lol


  • That’s a worry ! Chemicals like this should be nowhere near when manufacturing kids toys !!
