Princess Cruises announced Tuesday that Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and wife of Prince William, will officially name the company’s newest cruise ship — the Royal Princess.

The ceremony takes place in Southhampton, England, on June 13 and is part of a week-long inaugural celebration of the new ship, according to a media notice released by Santa Clarita-based Princess Cruises.

The ceremony includes a blessing, performance by the Royal Marines Band and the pipers of the Irish Guards.

“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,” said Alan Buckelew, president and CEO.

The Royal Princess is expected to arrive at the Ocean Terminal in Southampton on Friday, June 7. The ship’s inaugural celebrations will conclude with her maiden voyage on June 16.
