Limited Signature Edition 19

Royal Wedding

H R H Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer

Limited to 4000 Sets - Issued in 1981

The wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer took place on July 29, 1981, at St Paul’s Cathedral.   More than 600,000 people lined the roads of London, hoping to glimpse the happy couple, and many millions more watched it on TV around the world.

The Royal Wedding Group pictured above is really composed of two parts :

The Limited Edition dolls, whose issue quantity was capped at 4000 sets, comprised Prince Charles and Lady Diana only.

The Archbishop and the two bridesmaids were not part of the Limited Edition set, but were sold to complete it - hence their inclusion here.

The model of Princess Diana is very unusual amongst Nisbet dolls, because she does not have a mohair wig - instead, she has a moulded plastic hairpiece.   (We think that Lady Diana's short hairstyle could not be properly reproduced with a mohair wig - and the moulded hairpiece was the better option)

Robert Runcie served with distinction as a Tank Commander in the Scots Guards, and was awarded the Military Cross.   Later, he became Bishop of St Albans, and was appointed Archbishop of Canterbury in 1980.

Lady Sarah, (the dark haired bridesmaid), is the second child of Princess Margaret and the Earl of Snowdon.   She was seventeen years old at the time of the Wedding

Clementine (blonde haired) is the Great Granddaughter of Sir Winston Churchill, and was only five years old when she was Bridesmaid at the Royal Wedding

The complete Limited Edition set consisted of the following two dolls :

  • P/1004 - H R H Prince Charles, Prince of Wales
  • P/1005 - Lady Diana Spencer
The three dolls listed below are not part of the LSE 19 set, but were issued to complete it, as "Royal Wedding Commemorative Dolls" :
  • P/429 - Archbishop of Canterbury
  • P/430 - Elder Bridesmaid (Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones)
  • P/431 - Younger Bridesmaid (Clementine Hambro)

Important Announcement


My dear wife, Christine, passed away on the 8th December, 2021after 8 weeks in hospital. I was by her side, when she slipped away from me peacefully, with no pain or suffering.


Chris had been struggling with a slow decline in health, associated with a progressive, untreatable, and ultimately terminal lung disease, and finally succumbed to her old adversary, Pneumonia.


We had been friends for 55 years, together as a couple for 50 years, and married just a month short of 48 years, when she died.   


This website was Chris's idea, and I did all the technical stuff, to make it work.   After news of Chris's passing reached her close friends in the doll collecting world, I was deeply touched and gratified to hear their tributes to my dear wife, and I must thank them all for their kindness and support.   Ultimately, it was her doll friends that gave me the courage to continue with the website.


In the months before her eventual hospitalisation, Chris had outlined a number of additions and changes she wanted to make to the website, and it is my intention to honour those wishes, and to implement the changes we had considered, over the coming weeks and months.


I must apologise to all those who have written to us via the website, only to have your emails go unanswered.   Unfortunately, the email system had been hacked aroung the time Chris was going into hospital, and many emails must have been lost, as a result.


As you might imagine, I felt completely broken by Chris's loss, and it is only now, almost 22 months after her passing, that I have felt strong enough to even look at the website again.   


My aim is to continue with the website, and to implement Chris's aims for her many new ideas as soon as I can.   In the meantime, I have hopefully got the email system sorted out, and I will attempt to answer any enquiries as soon as I can, and to send replies with the same high degree of accuracy that a reply from Chris would have had.


From now on, I will be flying solo, whilst my co-pilot and guide will be soaring much higher, (though she is always in my heart, and in my thoughts).


My thanks to all our website visitors for your continued support


Dave (also known as Arthur), and Chris, (my lost love, Guinevere)
