PM heralds HMS Queen Elizabeth as “a symbol of the United Kingdom as a great global, maritime nation”

HMS Queen Elizabeth sailed into Portsmouth, UK Wednesday 17th August 2017 to great acclaim.

The Prime Minister Theresa May reinforced the might of Britain as a maritime nation in her address: “Britain truly has the best sailors, marines and officers in the world and I believe that you deserve the very best equipment. That is what we have with HMS Queen Elizabeth. This ship is a symbol of the United Kingdom as a great global, maritime nation”.

First Sea Lord‏, Admiral Philip Jones, shared “Navies are strategic in nature. @HMSQNLZ will sit at the heart of our defence for 50 years. Today is a triumph of national ambition.” (Above photo credit)

The Royal Navy posted this video to commemorate the occasion and really shows the scale of the vessel.
