Kate Middleton to name cruise ship

London - The Duchess of Cambridge will officially name the new "Royal Princess" cruise liner at a gala ceremony.

The former Kate Middleton plans to board the vessel for the naming ceremony, which will include a blessing and the traditional smashing of a bottle across the hull.

The ceremony in Southampton on Thursday will include a brief tour of the ship for the duchess, who is expected to give birth to her and Prince William's first child in mid-July.

It is expected to be her final planned solo event before the birth.

The new 3 600-passenger ship is scheduled to begin cruising the Mediterranean this summer.

    Is "Kate Middleton" still the appropriate name for her?
