A rare doll of the Queen as a toddler that incurred the wrath of her mother because it made her look 'too chubby' has sold for almost £1,000.<br />
<br />
The Queen Mother was so displeased with the German-made model of a three-year-old Princess Elizabeth that she refused to give it the royal seal of approval.
