England’s Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton will celebrate their first anniversary on April 29 alongside their Barbie clones. Toy maker Mattel will have ready the dolls for purchase on April 7.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge now have their own royal versions of Barbie and Ken, People reports, and the dolls will be decked out in their wedding garb. (RELATED: Full coverage of the entertainment world)

William is presented in his red military jacket with a blue sash, and Middleton is dressed in a mini-version of her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, complete with tiara, and her sapphire engagement ring.

The imperial couple may not be quite as fake or perfect as the original Ken and Barbie, but collectors still might find some value in the soon-to-be dolls.

Royal-watchers in America, however, are out of luck: The collectables will not be available for purchase in the United States. European shoppers can buy them when they go on sale April 7 on Amazon’s UK website.
