 At the age of 12 Her Majesty was also present at the launch of the first Queen Elizabeth on 27 September 1938 when she accompanied her mother, Queen Elizabeth, to Clydebank for the launch.

The Queen launched Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1967 and named Cunard's current flagship, Queen Mary 2, in 2004.
