New applications launched by the Government of Canada will allow more people across the country and around the world to follow The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they embark on their tour of Canada beginning on June 30. The iPhone and mobile applications were launched today by the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
“Royal Tours are opportunities for all Canadians, particularly young people, to take pride in our country and our history, and to show to the world all that this great country has to offer” said Minister Moore. “Launching this application will offer Canadians the opportunity to connect with the Royal Tour and interact with friends and colleagues in exciting new ways.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make seven official stops in four provinces and one territory over nine days, from June 30 to July 8. The upcoming Royal Tour will be the first international tour for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as a married couple.
The new 2011 Royal Tour iPhone application is available for free on iTunes and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices running iOS 4.0 or later. Blackberry and other mobile platform users can access the content at m.royaltour.ca.
