Our very own royal baby: Australian collector has Prince George replica doll
AUSTRALIAN royal collector Jan Hugo celebrated the birth of Prince George in a unique way - by having a replica doll made of him. The doll, made by "reborn" artist Cathy Brady, was modelled on the first photos released of the royal baby and lies in a brass cradle in a christening robe. Jan, from Nulkaba in New South Wales, has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars amassing a collection of around 10,000 pieces of British royal family memorabilia and lives with husband David - an electrician who describes himself as "the royal servant". Jan's house includes mannequins of Prince Charles, Prince William, Queen Elizabeth and Camilla - as well as a throne-shaped toilet - and she is planning to travel to Sydney for Kate and Wills' visit to Oz this month.
