Kate shows off smashing style at launch of ship

KATE Middleton was all smiles as she christened a new liner – her last solo engagement before her baby is born.

The British royal let fly a huge bottle of champagne against the hull of the ship Royal Princess.

Kate, who is due to give birth in mid-July, flew to Southampton by helicopter for the naming ceremony of Princess Cruises' 3,600-passenger liner.

Meanwhile, mum Carole and sister Pippa (inset) took in Andy Murray and Nicolas Mahut's tennis match at Queens Club in London.
