A smashing success!

Kate Middleton celebrated the naming of the new Royal Princess Cruise ship yesterday in Southampton, England.

The expectant royal helped to christen the 3,600-passenger ocean liner with a massive $1,500 bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial.

The Duchess of Cambridge cut a ceremonial rope, which sent the 4-gallon bottle crashing into the ship.

Middleton gave a formal blessing over the ship, saying, "I name this ship Royal Princess, may God bless her and all who sail in her."

The special occasion marked the last pre-baby solo public appearance by the royal.

Middleton looked as radiant as ever in a gorgeous Hobbs Dalmatian print dress with a black fascinator cap.

Maybe Middleton and Prince William will set sail on the ship after their baby arrives!
