The Queen to name new Cunard ship

Cunard Line  announced that Her Majesty The Queen will name the company's new Queen Elizabeth, the third Cunard ship to bear the name, at a ceremony to take place in Southampton on Monday 11 October 2010. After the Naming Ceremony the ship will set sail on her maiden voyage the following day.

 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.
