Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton Announced as Royal Princess Godmother

Date Posted: 09 Apr 2013
Category:

Princess Cruises have just unveiled that the brand new Royal Princess ship will, appropriately, be officially named by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. The event takes place in just over two months on June 13th 2013 in Southampton, where the ship will be based before embarking on her first cruise.

Royal Princess is due in Southampton on Fri June 7th, where she will enjoy a week of festivities in the lead up to the inauguration. Princess Cruises have a wonderful history of previous cruise ship Godmothers, including the late Margaret Thatcher and Diana Princess of Wales.

Following a few short previous tours, Royal Princess’ maiden voyage will begin on June 16th, as she sets sail on her first of many Grand Mediterranean cruises, before switching to the Caribbean in the autumn.

It’s an excellent and fitting choice of Godmother, for a cruise line with such an elegant British heritage. We’ll be attending on June 13th to cover the event in detail, for what will no doubt be a fantastic event.
