Duchess of Cornwall to christen Queen Victoria

Date Posted: 12 Sep 2007
It has been confirmed that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall will officially name the Queen Victoria in a ceremony to be held on December 10th.

The day before the newest arrival to the Cunard Cruises fleet sets sail on its maiden voyage, the Duchess of Cornwall along with her husband, the Prince of Wales, will attend the ceremony in Southampton in order to formally name the liner.

According to Cunard Cruises, the event will be a "milestone" in Cunard and British maritime history and will be witnessed by 2,000 special guests.

"This will be an historic occasion," commented Carol Marlow, President of Cunard Cruises.

Ms Marlow added that each Cunard ship has been named by a member of the royal family and that she is "delighted that Queen Victoria will follow in that tradition".

As Queen Victoria comes into service, her sister ship the Queen Elizabeth 2 will be preparing for her retirement, scheduled for late 2008.
