Cunard’s three Queens are due to sail together from Southampton tomorrow and the The Red Arrows will be performing a display above.
The fly-past of the RAF jets is planned to start at 7:30pm with a flying display over Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.
The three ships will also receive a send off from yachtsmen and spectators at Cowes and The Royal Yacht Squadron at 5:30pm as they head for the Isle of Wight.
According to Cunard, it will be the first time in the line’s 178 year history that guests will have had such an opportunity and will be the first time all three Queens have docked together in Southampton since 2016.
As part of the celebrations, Cunard is hosting a ‘captain for the day’ experience for five children who have won competitions to visit the three ships.
In order to win, the winners had to write in explaining why they deserved to be a captain, and they were judged on the creativity of their entries.
The children will tour Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth, spend time with the captains and take part in bridge visits.
It also includes lunch on board and their day will finish with a trip round all three Queens in a speedboat.
Shoreside viewing is recommended from Lee-on-the-Solent, East Cowes Esplanade, West Cowes, Stokes Bay and Sea View, Ryde Esplanade or Southsea.
