All the highlights from day five of the Royal Canadian Tour.

On day five of the Canadian Royal Tour, hundreds flocked to the streets to welcome the Royals to Whitehorse with a lively street party.

The couple had just come from the MacBride Museum of Yukon History, where they were welcomed by legendary Yukon wireless telegraph operator, 90-year-old Doug Bell.

The couple participated in the the history-making, telegraph-to-tweet, becoming the first visitors to sign into the Museum’s digital guest book using the brand new technology.

“It was still in me, just like tapping out an alphabet,” said Bell,

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh visited the same telegraph office in 1959.

Following on from their museum visit, the couple received a traditional welcome from the Carcross/Tagish First Nation and were invited to tour the public spaces and important cultural projects.
