Wills, Kate Barbie dolls to hit shelves

2012-02-16 15:11

London - Most newlyweds have to make do with photos to immortalise the moment they say "I do". But Prince William and his wife Catherine will have their special day captured forever - in Barbie doll form.

"Available in April timed to their one year wedding anniversary, the gift set features the two wearing outfits inspired by their regal wedding day attire," said a spokesperson for Barbie-maker Mattel.

The Catherine doll wears a miniature version of her Alexander McQueen-designed wedding gown and a radiant plastic smile.

William's doll features his red military jacket and, rather generously, a full head of hair.

The second in line to the throne and his bride Kate Middleton married in a glittering London ceremony on April 29 last year, which was broadcast around the world.

Aimed at adult collectors, the Will and Kate dolls can be pre-ordered for $157 for the pair.

The prince, 29, is currently on a deployment in the Falkland Islands as part of his role as a Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot, but still found time to send his 30-year-old wife a Valentine's card and flowers.
