Queen Elizabeth II dolls sell out in seconds

A one-of-a-kind, never-before-seen Barbie doll sold out in just seconds after the sale as toy lovers stormed.

A Queen Barbie doll to mark her Platinum Jubilee sold out in just three seconds after its release.

The queen was recently immortalized as one of the iconic dolls to mark her 70 years on the throne.

But UK department store John Lewis said its stock of the GBP95 doll ($168) sold out – seen as a key piece of royal memorabilia – in three seconds, with eBay sellers hoping to sell the sought-after collectible for a good profit.

Barbie Queen Elizabeth II doll comes in an ivory dress and blue sash adorned with order decorations – while her miniature tiara is based on Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara – famously worn by the Queen on her wedding day.

Meanwhile, never-before-seen footage of the queen throughout her life has been released in anticipation of an upcoming documentary.

The teaser for Elizabeth: The Invisible Queen was first broadcast on the BBC One TV channel on Thursday.

Her Majesty is seen as a young princess, jumping on the Royal Yacht Britannia, smiling at the camera as a teenager with her younger sister Princess Margaret.
