The Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton – has made her last solo public appearance before she is due to give birth.
The duchess attended a naming ceremony for a cruise ship, the ‘Royal Princess’ in Southampton, England.
In keeping with tradition, she smashed a bottle of champagne on the ship’s hull and blessed the boat.
Kate’s final public appearance will come this weekend at Trooping the Colour, along with other members of the royal family.
She is expected to deliver the future heir to the royal throne in July.
