An Announcement from Cunard Line

Cunard

We are honoured and proud to announce that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will name our new Cunarder QUEEN ELIZABETH on Monday 11 October


Cunard Line is pleased to announce that Her Majesty The Queen will name the company’s new Queen Elizabeth, the third Cunard ship to bear the name, at a ceremony to take place in Southampton on Monday 11 October 2010. The naming will be a milestone in British maritime history and will be a major event of worldwide interest.
"The naming of a Cunard Queen is a very special occasion and this will be an historic event in the true sense of the word. The Queen launched Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1967 and named our current flagship Queen Mary 2 in 2004," said Peter Shanks, President and Managing Director. "We are both honoured and proud that Her Majesty will name our new liner Queen Elizabeth," he added.

Her Majesty was also present at the age of 12 at the launch of the first Queen Elizabeth on 27 September 1938 when she accompanied her mother, Queen Elizabeth, to Clydebank for the launch.

The Christening will take place in Southampton on Monday 11 October and Queen Elizabeth will set sail on her maiden voyage the following day.

  1. Perhaps an invitation to the people of the land of Golden Urn. Awaiting mine.
