The course helps to give young people the skills and confidence to find a job in the customer services industry and included work placements across four Cunard departments.

Cunard is a gold patron, having enjoyed a long and successful relationship with the youth charity since 2007 and has so far raised over £800,000 for The Trust.

Peter Shanks, Cunard’s President and Managing Director, said:

We are proud to support The Prince’s Trust – helping young people in today’s challenging world is something we are committed to.

Her Royal Highness was making a special return visit to the Cunard liner she named five years ago, to mark the fifth birthday celebrations.
