We Are Cunard
Posted in: Updates
Amongst all the challenges around the world – at last we all have some good news to celebrate – and at Cunard we plan to celebrate it in style. When Diana married Prince Charles in 1981 I was sharing a flat with friends in Palace St, London – just round the corner from Buckingham Palace. It seemed as though the whole country had come to London to celebrate. As the happy couple drove back down The Mall in their open top horse drawn carriage we all stood on the pavement and watched them pass close up. We also saw the famous kiss from the balcony. There is something unique and special about our Royal Family – I will always remember that day and I am sure that this wedding will be just as magnificent. It’s good news, something for us all to be proud of and something to celebrate. This time I plan to watch it from home over a BBQ – but I expect we will all feel the emotion as we see William kiss his Princess just as his mother kissed her Prince all those years ago.
And that is exactly what we plan to do – celebrate it in style with 6,600 of our guests across the fleet. We are fortunate to have close links to our Royal Family and that should create an extra special atmosphere. Have a look at this video – we filmed the preparation onboard Queen Mary 2 in New York earlier this week.
We will have blog reports and photos from each of our ships for you to read after the weekend – and I hope that you enjoy the moment wherever you are around the world.
