The Duchess of Cambridge Names Royal Princess


In a spectacular ceremony in Southampton yesterday, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge named the new ship Royal Princess when she released a bottle of champagne that smashed against its hull.

Standing on the naming platform with the ship's Captain Tony Draper, The Duchess pronounced, "I name this ship Royal Princess. May God bless her and all who sail in her." She then cut the rope that sent a giant Nebuchadnezzar-size bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne toward the ship, officially welcoming Royal Princess into the fleet of Princess Cruises, one of the world's largest international cruise lines.

"We can think of no more fitting godmother for our magnificent new Royal Princess," Princess Cruises President and CEO Alan Buckelew said.

"Her Royal Highness is an inspiring ambassador for Britain - with whom Princess Cruises shares strong ties – and she is admired around the world for her style and grace. We're so honoured she accepted our invitation to become godmother to our new ship."
