Look forward to this occasion - very fitting that Kate is following Diana in the role she performed for the original liner to bear this name.

PRobably because of the number of people that would know anyway. Ship launching in Southampton is a really big event

Very excited about this. I was wondering when Catherine will have a chance to launch a ship. Very nice to see her follow her late mother-in-law's footsteps in launching the Royal Princess liners.

Following in Diana's footstep? Didn't the Queen launch a ship in the early days of her reign?

Yeah but we are talking about the Royal Princess liners. Diana christened a Royal Princess liner I think around 1984 in Southampton.

Most likely they compared her to The Queen or Princess Grace.

Good to hear about Catherine's new engagement.

I think she'll attend the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation Service at Westmisnter Abbey on the 4th June, Trooping the Colour on 15th June and Order of the Garter on the 17th June.

I don't know about the Percy TVS wedding since it closer to July and up in Northumberland. I can't imagine going past Berkshire as it gets closer to the due date. The royals events in early June will probably be it for her.
