Cunard’s three Queens arrive in Southampton for QM2’s 10th anniversary

All three Queens arrived in Southampton late last week to celebrate Queen Mary 2’s 10th anniversary.

The luxury liner was joined by her sisters – Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria – for a rare gathering of the line’s entire fleet.

Southampton is the only place in the world to have hosted the three Queens three times.

His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh was also part of the celebration, boarding Queen Mary 2 for a behind-the-scenes tour.

He was taken to staff quarters, the bridge as well as work areas such as the laundry room and crew gym.

The Prince Phillip was also taken to the bar where he showed off his sense of humour saying: “So here are all the alcoholics.”
