Romance Lives!

Cunard’s world-famous flagship Queen Mary 2 became the Queen of Hearts today, arriving in Sydney on Valentine’s Day with a giant marriage proposal for one lucky Sydneysider.

Sporting a 25-metre long, five-metre high banner with the question “Marry Me Jess?” below her funnel, Queen Mary 2 sailed into the Harbour about 6am, leaving sightseers wondering who Jess was.

The question on everyone’s lips was answered when pilot Stefan Libon dropped to his knee and proposed to his girlfriend of nearly six years, Jess McGarrity, at Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, with Queen Mary 2 in full view.
