Blah,blah,blah... extended corporate advertisment for the liner company...

IMO it's a shame the Duchess is involved with this.

I like that the recipients from Catherine, William and Harry's charities were there at the ceremony today.

I quite agree - and it goes a long way to mitigate the issues people have with commercialism. In this case - it also sends the message from the Duchess that though she will be on hiatus, she remains focused on the charities. I thought it was a masterstroke idea from her/William/their handlers.

I'm not a fan of the print, but the shape of the dress was great and her hair looked terrific. I understand why people don't want the Duchess to get involved in commercialism, but I think that there is only one British cruiseline, so she is promoting the British economy, which all the royals do.

Royals from around the world are constantly "shilling" for companies. Many people consider this type of "economic development" part other job in the era of figurehead/constitutional monarchies.

In the past, when HMQ or other members of Royal Families launched a ship,if it were televised, the coverage didn't include an extended promotional 'tour' of the vessel, nor a speech from the chairman extolling the virtues of the 'worlds largest floating pastry shop'...

i'm glad people from the Duchess' charities were included, but i still find the whole 'shebang' rather cheap.

The samething happened when The Queen launched QM2 and when the Duchess of Cornwall launched the Queen Victoria. There were TV coverage's and lots of promotions.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".
