Final solo appearance before baby

– A glowing Duchess of Cambridge on Thursday christened a cruise ship named the Royal Princess.

Palace officials said it is planned as her final solo public appearance before she is expected to give birth in mid-July.

The former Kate Middleton, as she was known before her marriage two years ago to Prince William, used a 4-gallon, $1,500 bottle of Moet and Chandon Champagne to do the job – it was so heavy she couldn’t swing it herself, but she cut a ribbon that launched the bottle toward the hull, where it smashed as crowds cheered.

“I name this ship Royal Princess, may God bless her and all who sail in her,” the duchess said, whose baby bump was clearly outlined against her black and white print coat.

The Duchess of Cambridge has been officially designated the godmother of the new ship, a symbolic title dating back to an earlier nautical era.

She and William are expecting their first child.

William’s mother, the late Princess Diana, performed a similar cruise ship christening on the same spot nearly three decades ago.
