Royal wedding? There's an "app" for that

British divorce lawyers have words of warning for Prince William: Not all fairy tales have happy endings. The prince is set to wed his longtime love Kate Middleton on April 29, but if history is any guide, divorce lawyers say the heir to the British throne would be well advised to sign a prenuptial agreement. Britain's royal family has been plagued by a string of failed marriages. Three of Queen Elizabeth II's four children have been divorced, and William's uncle on his mother's side, Charles Spencer, has two ex-wives.

Britain's monarchy says it is launching its first official "Royal App," which will focus on past royal weddings.

Available for download just days before Prince William and Kate Middleton's April 29 wedding, the application will tell the story of seven royal nuptials.

It will showcase images of wedding dresses, jewelry, wedding cakes and flowers from those weddings - from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1840, to Prince Charles and Camilla in 2005.

Jemima Rellie at the Royal Collection said Wednesday the app will offer "a wealth of historical context" for the upcoming royal wedding.

The application will cost 1.79 pounds (about $3) and be available in eight languages. iPhone and Android uses can download it beginning on April 18.

The app is the royal family's latest foray into modern technology. The monarchy also maintains presences on TwitterFacebookFlickr and YouTube.
