The Carnival Corporation-owned subsidiary Cunard Line announced a millinery masterpiece designed via partnership with the popular milliner (women's hats designer and producer) Stephen Jones OBE on RMS Queen Mary 2.

Jones, who has designed for royalties like Princess Diana, Princess Eugenie, Duchess of Sussex, has drawn inspiration for the hat from Cunard’s rich heritage and the experience one gets while sailing across the Atlantic Ocean on the luxury liner.
