Kate Middleton And Prince William Immortalised As Barbie Dolls

Move over Malibu Barbie and Ken, there is a new couple in town.

Barbie makers Mattel are set to launch their first collectors' range, the 'Prince William and Catherine Royal Wedding' dolls to commemorate the royal couple's first wedding anniversary.

Taking the lead from the 'Princess Catherine Engagement' doll by Hamleys prior to the big day, the new dolls are decked in their wedding gear complete with a replica of Kate’s lace Alexander McQueen dress and that engagement ring and Will’s Guards uniform and Order of Garter sash.

But before you agree to add this to your child's Barbie collection, you should be aware that the pair wil set you back £99 - so they're perhaps more suited to the collector's display cabinet than the battered toy box.

Watch this space for a matching Pippa Middleton doll.

The dolls will be available from April at Amazon.
