Kate is shown a portrait of herself by President and CEO of Princess Cruises Alan Buckelew, which will be displayed in the ship's art gallery.
“It is a great honor for Princess Cruises that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge has accepted our invitation to become the godmother to Royal Princess,” said Alan Buckelew, president and CEO of Princess Cruises, in a statement. “We are delighted that the Duchess will launch our new ship and can think of no better way to celebrate our company’s British heritage and our commitment to the country.”
Clearly elated that 8-months pregnant Kate chose to wear a £169 "Dalmatian Mac" coat dress from Hobbs Spring/Summer 2013 collection, a spokesperson for the brand told Marie Claire magazine, "It is an honor whenever the Duchess of Cambridge chooses to wear the UK high street."
Kate accessorized the outfit with a black hat that featured a large bow and classic black suede court shoes. The Duchess finished her look with a small cream box clutch.
