Britain's monarchy announced it will launch its first official "Royal App" for smartphones.

The application will be available for download just days before Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding April 29. It will focus on seven royal nuptials.

The app will highlight 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.

Officials said the app will offer a wealth of historical context for the upcoming royal wedding.

The application will be available in eight languages and can be downloaded for iPhones and Android from April 18.
