If you want to keep up with all of the latest on the big wedding, these Royal Wedding apps will help. I waited patiently for my invitation, but Kate must have lost my address so I’ll be Keeping Up With The Royals in other ways.
Past Royal Wedding
I remember the last Royal Wedding as if it was just a few years ago. It was in July and my family was on vacation somewhere in Colorado. I was about the same age as my daughter is now. We were in our camper and I remember my sister, my mom and I getting up really early to watch the Royal Wedding on the little TV we brought with us (just for the wedding.) We had rabbit ears & tin foil so we could get the best picture while out in the
wilderness campground with all the luxuries of home. In just a few weeks, there will be another Royal Wedding and since it is a school day, I won’t be getting my girls up to watch it.
Royal Wedding Apps
I’ve been keeping up with all of the Royal Wedding news with these apps on my iPhone and iPad.
The Royal Wedding by NBC News (iPhone & iPad version) – This Royal Wedding app is my favorite because it is very interactive and has a really interesting family tree feature where you can track the royal ancestors. There are tons of pictures and stories from all the NBC news shows and you can easily share on Twitter and Facebook. (free)
Royal Wedding Insider (iPhone/iPad) – this is the BBC America Royal Wedding app. You can get all the latest news, videos and pictures. There is also a place to plan a Royal Wedding of your own and wedding tips from BRIDES magazine.(free)

Watch the Royal Wedding Online
As it turns out, I will be covering a different wedding event that morning and I won’t even be near a TV. I will have my iPhone with me, so I decided to look for Royal Wedding Apps. I’m sharing this with you since it isn’t considered a holiday here in the USA so many of us will be working that day.
Yahoo! iPhone App) – Yahoo! Shine has a whole section devoted to the Ro(
yal Wedding and will be showing it live on April 29.
CNN Royal Wedding on Twitter – CNN will have coverage live on Twitter if you can’t access video on your phone.
I’m sure there will be live coverage in more places, but these are the ones that I could verify.. The wedding is scheduled to begin at 11:00 a.m. London time (6:00 a.m. Eastern.)
