Just yesterday, Princess Cruises celebrated the christening of the new Royal Princess with godmother Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, who officially named the vessel and cut the cord to release the crash of champagne upon her bow. Her selection as godmother to perform these duties is fitting since Princess Diana christened the original Royal Princess in 1984 before her.
“We can think of no more fitting godmother for our magnificent new Royal Princess,” said Alan Buckelew, Princess Cruises’ president and CEO. “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 honored she accepted our invitation to become godmother to our new ship.”
