The Coronation of the King and Queen
As we join the nation in celebrating the historic coronation of King Charles III, we are immensely proud to be able to reflect on some of the significant moments that we have shared with the royal family, dating back to August 1861 when Prince Alfred sailed from Halifax to Liverpool on Cunard’s SS Arabia.
Our ships have been a preferred mode of luxury transport for the British monarchy for decades. The first visit aboard a Cunard Queen by a reigning monarch took place in Liverpool in July 1913 when King George V and Queen Mary visited RMS Mauretania.
