Prince William and Kate Middleton get the Barbie treatment

02/16/2012 by Olivia Allin

It's been nearly a year since Kate Middleton wed Prince William at Westminster Abbey and to celebrate the occasion, the Royals have received the Barbie treatment.

Mattel announced this week that they would release limited edition Barbie dolls in the likeness of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to celebrate the couple's one-year wedding anniversary on April.

"William and Catherine are like a modern day Barbie and Ken," a Mattel spokesperson said in a statement to ABC News. "The whole world watched as the two were married in what was a real-life fairytale wedding... As a fashion icon, it is only appropriate that Barbie would pay tribute to this unforgettable fashion moment."

The dolls, who are clothed in miniature versions of their wedding garb, are available for pre-order in the United Kingdom for 99.99, or approximately $158.

Duchess Catherine's doll is shown wearing a replica of her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown, complete with an ivory veil, tiara and drop earrings.

Meanwhile, Prince Williams' doll is shown wearing the red Irish Guards colonel's uniform with a blue Order of the Garter sash.

Middleton recently celebrated her 30th birthday with a "low-key and private" affair. She is several months older than her husband, who will turn 30 in June.
