The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Birkenhead today, for the naming ceremony of the ship the public voted to be named ‘Boaty McBoatface’.

The research vessel, which has officially been named after Sir David Attenborough, will enable world-leading research to be carried out in Antarctica and the Arctic over the next three decades.

Their Royal Highnesses will meet a team of engineers from Cammell Laird who have been involved in the ship’s build, including young apprentices.

The couple are accompanied by Sir David Attenborough, who will join them as they visit the flight deck to meet scientists who will demonstrate how the state-of-the-art equipment is used to carry out research while out at sea.

The ceremony will see the Duchess, who is the ship’s sponsor, smash a bottle of Champagne on the ship’s hull - a tradition which dates back hundreds of years.

For the occasion, Kate opted to rewear her customised coat dress from Alexander McQueen. It is a clear favourite for the Duchess, who first debuted the coat back in 2014 when she attended a remembrance service for New Zealand’s war dead.
