GOOD NEWS for Barbie collectors and British royal family fans alike: Mattel is set to produce special dolls to commemorate the first anniversary of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.

The dolls will wear costumes based on the couple’s wedding attire – the Irish Guards outfit sported by the groom and the bride’s Sarah Burton-designed dress. The set is due for release in April and will retail at $100.

The toy company is planning to celebrate a second famous wedding from 2011: Mattel recently announced the release of commemorative Bella and Edward dolls based on the main characters of the Twilight vampire romance series.

“Edward, the eternal heartthrob, of course looks smashing in his tuxedo,” according to a company statement. “But this is Bella’s ultimate fashion moment, and she is absolutely breathtaking.”

The Twilight wedding characters are being released as part of Mattel’s Spring 2012 collection.

The world’s most expensive Barbie doll was sold at auction in 2010 for $302,500. The custom-made doll sported a diamond necklace featuring a one-carat pink diamond, according to the Telegraph.

Here are some pictures of the Bella and Edward pair:
