The pregnantDuchess of Cambridgemade her final solo engagement before she heads off on maternity leave at the launch of Princess Cruises’ new ship, Royal Princess, ahead of its maiden voyage on 16 June. She looked as stylish as ever in an animal print mac with an A-line silhouette by the high street store, which costs £169 and is currently still available at House of Fraser and on the Hobbs website. She teamed the mac with a white clutch, a statement hat in black and matching courts.
The mum-to-be, who is due to give birth to the royal baby on 13 July, was the main focus of the ceremony, going on board sans Prince William for a brief tour of the impressive vessel – which features 27 bars and restaurants, a 280-seat entertainment area and a glass-bottomed walkway.
As the ship’s Godmother,Kate Middletonalso took part in an official blessing of the liner, which involved the celebratory tradition of smashing a bottle over the hull of the ship as she named it, as well as a performance by the Royal Marines Band and the pipers of the Irish Guards.
Tonight,Kate Middletonand her blossoming baby bump will also attend a glittering gala dinner after launching the new ship. It’s understood that teachers Danuta Tomasz and Dave Flowitt have been invited to dine with the pregnant Duchess at the celebrations. The teachers’ school partners the Skill Force charity, of which Prince William is a patron.
