Want to show your respect to Prince William and Kate Middleton? Carphone Warehouse has the perfect gift – the Royal Wedding mobile phone!

The candy bar mobile phone, retailing for £14.95 and built by Alcatel, features a Union Flag on the front and the royal couple’s initials and wedding date inscribed on the reverse.

And, in case you’re thinking there’s a typo (or that the CW stands for Carphone Warehouse), for the wedding Kate will be known as Catherine!

Pre-loaded content includes a customised wallpaper and Felix Mendelssohn’s ‘Wedding March’ ringtone. The phone has a 1.5-inch colour display, with an FM radio, alarm clock and calculator down as some of its key features. In other words, the phone isn’t going to be replacing your iPhone – but will your iPhone capture the spirit of the wedding? We think not.

The handset goes on sale on March 22nd at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy stores throughout the UK.
