Cunard celebrates Royal arrival

Cunard-clebrates-May4

Cunard’s fleet of Three Queens – flagship Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth – welcomed the new Royal Baby with a simultaneous sounding of the ships’ whistles (foghorns) on May 2.

Following the time-honoured Magpie rhyme beginning “One for sorrow, Two for joy,” the fleet sounded their whistles three times in unison, “Three for a girl (four for a boy).”

The three ships arrived into Southampton on May 3, inaugurating the start of Cunard’s 175th anniversary year.
