Cunard liners drop British flag
Luxury cruise company Cunard has announced its ships will stop sailing under the British flag.
The company said it was being done to allow weddings to be held on board as ships registered in the UK cannot conduct marriages.
The company's three ships Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth will instead fly the flag of Bermuda.
The port of Hamilton will also replace the name of Southampton on the stern from next spring.
