The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to be immortalised as a pair of Barbie dolls, Mattel has said.

The models depict the royal couple on their wedding day, with Kate wearing a white dress with lace and a veil inspired by the Alexander McQueen design she wore on the big day and William in his red Irish Guards uniform.

The dolls, which are aimed at adult collectors, will be on sale from April to coincide with the pair's first anniversary but can be pre-ordered now.

A spokesman for toy manufacturer Mattel said: "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."

The Barbie Collector Royal Wedding William and Catherine Doll Set can be bought on Amazon for £99.99.
