They´re a Prince and Duchess, in a Barbie World…

15 Feb

Launched to coincide with their one-year wedding anniversary this April, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have been turned into Barbie dolls, Mattel announced yesterday.

Each doll, measuring 11.5 inches tall, comes dressed in full wedding costume replicating the originals worn at Westminster Abbey for the April 29 nuptials. The Kate doll wears a floor-length ivory gown with a lace torso and full skirt (a miniature version of  the Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen royal wedding dress she wore on her big day), a delicate ivory veil, a sparkling tiara and matching drop earrings, and a posy of seasonal flowers in one hand. Prince William is dressed in his specially commissioned scarlet Irish Guards colonel’s uniform topped with a blue Order of the Garter sash stitched with the RAF wings.

The Barbie collector William and Catherine royal wedding gift set will be released on April 7 and is currently available for £99.99 to pre-order via Amazon.

This is the second set of dolls to be released of the couple, last August, Hamleys unveiled the Prince William and Princess Catherine Wedding Dolls by British toy company Arklu priced at £100 with £1 from every sale being donated to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (to date proceeds have helped raise more than £16,000!).
