There was a special job for the Queen to do in Southampton this week.
The monarch named the new Queen Elizabeth cruise ship at a ceremony in the city.
Stars including Sir Ben Kingsley and Sir Jimmy Saville were in attendance as the ship was named with a bottle of fine wine rather than the customary champagne.
The 2,000 capacity, Italian-built vessel - which is nearly 1,000ft long - cost about £365 million to make.
It embarked on its sell-out maiden voyage on Tuesday – a trip to the Canary Islands.
Tickets for the cruise ranged from £1,489 per person to £15,799.
