The Diary hears that naming Abbey's racing yacht proved to be far from plain sailing for Park Row PR Jo Smith.
As she uttered the immortal words:”I name this ship ”, she hoped it would bring her one step closer to a royal title. All that was missing was the turquoise hat and handbag.
But the Diary hears she may still have some way to go before she is invited to crack another bottle of champers over the bow of a sailing vessel.
Jo named the yacht Trident rather than Triton, its real name.
