Duchess of Cambridge names Royal Princess Cruise Ship

The Duchess of Cambridge named the new ship Royal Princess yesterday. She stood on the naming platform with the ship's captain, Tony Draper, and released a bottle of champagne that smashed against its hull. The Duchess said, "I name this ship Royal Princess. May God bless her and all who sail in her."

The duchess then cut the rope that sent a giant Moet & Chandon champagne bottle toward the ship. The pregnant Duchess wore a Dalmatian print coat dress by Hobbs for the ceremony. Take a look:
