Liverpool is a city that will forever be part of Cunard’s history, having been Cunard’s home from the beginning in 1840, until 1967. When Queen Mary 2 arrived on 24 May 2015, she hosted a Champagne reception and lunch. On 25 May all three Queens reunited in Liverpool for the first time in history. Sailing in formation and meeting on the famous waterfront of their spiritual home, the fleet performed a water ballet together, creating a spectacular one-off event. Thousands of people viewed the display from the banks of the Mersey which was later concluded with a brilliant firework display.
On this day I was fortunate enough to be on the Mersey Dazzle ferry which led the 3 Queens down the River back towards the city. What a spectacular occasion it was and my vantage point provided a brilliant opportunity to photograph the 3 Queens close up. I have also included some other superb images taken from other locations on the day.
Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth meet in the Mersey, Liverpool for a gathering in front of the Three Graces and thousands of people on the riverside.
I was onboard the brightly coloured Razzle ferry on the day.
