Princess Cruises to air Royal Wedding on 17 ships around the world

Princess Cruises is to air Saturday's Royal Wedding live on all 17 of its ships.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s marriage will be shown on the ships’ top deck cinema screens, in bar lounges and on stateroom TVs.

Princess’ ships are positioned all around the world and will beam the event across the ocean, from Alaska to Asia to the South Pacific.

The line’s fleet of ships includes the aptly-named Royal Princess – launched by Prince Harry’s sister-in-law, The Duchess of Cambridge, in 2013 – which is currently based in Southampton and sailing round Britain. The ship will call at Greenock, near Glasgow, on the day of the wedding.

Diana Princess of Wales, Prince Harry’s mother, launched the original Royal Princess in Southampton in 1984.

A host of onboard activities are being arranged to celebrate the nuptials including parties, themed menus and Royal-related quizzes.

Tony Roberts, Princess Cruises’ vice president UK and Europe, said: “It’s particularly fitting that guests are able to watch the big day on Princess’ ships given our Royal connections.

“There’s huge demand to see the wedding, whether at sea or on land, so we’ll ensure we have the celebratory fizz at the ready as our guests onboard raise a toast to the happy couple.”
