British pop star Natasha Bedingfield to headline Royal Princess naming celebration
British singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield is to perform at the naming ceremony of the new cruise ship Royal Princess in Southampton.
She will make a special appearance at the celebration on 13 June, when the Duchess of Cambridge will officially name the ship.
Natasha Bedingfield will be headlining the christening ceremony of Royal Princess
Ever since her Brit and Grammy-nominated multi-platinum solo debut album “Unwritten” in 2004, the British-born Bedingfield has been one of the world’s most inspiring and innovative contemporary female singer-songwriters at the top of the charts.
With three albums under her belt, she is known for her powerfully soulful voice and heartfelt and contagious pop anthems.
Paul Ludlow, Princess Cruises UK director, said: “We are delighted that Natasha will be joining us at the naming celebrations. Her music will add a contemporary twist to the traditional elements of the ceremony along with a few other surprises.”
In addition to Bedingfield’s performance, the Royal Princess inaugural ceremony will feature many British ship-naming traditions, including a blessing of the vessel, and a performance by the the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band) and the pipers of the Irish Guards.
The christening of the vessel by the Duchess of Cambridge, when she breaks the champagne bottle on the bow of the ship, will be the highlight of week-long inaugural celebrations to welcome the ship into service.
Royal Princess will arrive at the Ocean Terminal in Southampton on Friday 7 June and will depart on her maiden voyage on the 16th. After her maiden voyage to Barcelona, the ship will sail Grand Mediterranean cruises throughout the summer, followed by Eastern Caribbean cruises beginning in the autumn.
