William and Kate become Barbies

They're not the first famous faces to be transformed into Barbies, but we imagine this Royal gift set will be a sell out.

To mark "one year since Barbie and Ken announced their reconciliation" (we never knew they were apart?!), Mattel have decided to honour another famous couple celebrating a year of marital bliss - William and Catherine of Cambridge.

Released in April to mark their first year wedding anniversary, the Prince William and Catherine Middleton Barbie dolls are dressed in miniature versions of their now iconic big day outfits - with Ken/William in a traditional uniform of red jacket and blue sash, and Barbie/Catherine in an homage to that McQueen dress, ivory veil, tiara and matching drop earrings.

Whilst Catherine looks a bit too much like your average Barbie for our liking, we think the William doll is uncanny. But would you buy them? What do you think of the doll's likeness? Let us know @StylistMagazine.

The Barbie Collector William and Catherine Royal Wedding Giftset is now on sale for £99 at and
