By Peggy Nesbit, this doll was considered a "play doll" not just a collectible to display. Numbered 3180 from the House of Nisbet, this 18" Vinyl Baby Doll depicts His Royal Highness: Prince William, in his Sunday Best at Buckingham Palace. Issued in 1984, and produced in an Excellent quality vinyl the Prince William doll was available in two different outfits; this costume is considered his "Sunday Best" attire for Buckingham Palace. Baby Prince William is dressed in a royal blue velvet suit of shorts and a vest, a frilly white shirt, a red bow tie, and a matching blue velvet hat. He is wearing white socks and black shoes.
His legs are jointed at the hips and will move to a sitting or laying position. His arms are also jointed at the shoulder and will raise up and down. His charming blue eyes open and close and have eyelashes. His wiry hair is a longish blond which looks best under his cap or peeking out from under.
Prince William's "Sunday Best" costume is in Excellent Condition. The shirt is actually very bright white though the photos don't seem to portray the true white. The doll himself is in Very Good Condition and is much more handsome than the photos show. He does have a few brown stains (like freckles) under his socks. The same stains were on his now nice white socks and washed out but have stubbornly remained on his ankles. No other issues are found and he remains a very handsome Prince!
His manufacturer's tag remains tied on his wrist identifying his model no. and his royal history. His P. N. (Peggy Nesbit) logo is on his neck.
