albums in one sophisticated package.
The iPad app features top Times writers such as Ben Macintyre, Simon
Barnes, Lynne Truss and Caitlin Moran, and brings together modern life, royal
history and Times reporting in one edition that won't curl at the corners, or
age too fast.

fly-through of the procession route; Times royal wedding coverage since our
first report in 1795; Derwent May's interactive nature guide to birds on the
Mall and an animated guide to the lines of royal succession.

download the Times Royal Wedding Souvenir Edition from iTunes as part of
their subscription. Non-subscribers can also download the free preview
edition at the iTunes app store.
On April 30 the full edition will be available in all territories,
updated with the best of our coverage of the wedding including video, photo
galleries and interactive graphics. The full edition is again free for Times
digital subscribers. Non-subscribers can purchase the full souvenir edition
for GBP4.99. Internationally the app is priced at 5.99 Euros or 7.99 US
