Britannia cruise ship named by the Queen in lavish ceremony - Telegraph
Quote:
The naming of a ship, followed by liquid spillage over the bow, is a long-held tradition, an honour previously bestowed on icons such as Sixties 'it' girls (Twiggy), Italian sex symbols (Sophia Loren); the queen of cakes (Mary Berry), and the Duchess of Cambridge (who can forget the heavily pregnant Kate in a Dalmatian print dress smashing a Swarovski-studded Nebuchadnezzar against the cruise ship Royal Princess?).

The Vikings did it with blood. Today it's usually bubbly; wine if it's a Cunard ship. Today the Queen christened P&O Cruises' gleaming white, red and blue Britannia in Southampton with a Nebuchadnezzar of sparkling wine from the Wiston Estate Winery in Sussex.

The Queen has previously christened the Royal Yacht Britannia and four other cruise ships: the QE2, the Oriana (another P&O ship) and Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth.

But her presence here today was significant for the cruise line which has spent nearly half a billion pounds building a contemporary ship, a "modern classic" for the British cruising market.

I guess the name "Britannia" brought some bittersweet memories for HM today ...

I only hope HMQ was given decent brooch for performing what must have been a rather [emotionally] difficult engagement...

I'm sure The Queen and Prince Philip's thought were with The Royal Yacht Britannia at this ceremony. Such a shame it was never replaced and any replacements talks are shot down.

The Queen looked beautiful, but so did the artist that sung the National Anthem. What's her name?
