The News today publishes a special supplement in celebration of HMS Queen

Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.

AS the first sailors join HMS Queen Elizabeth, it is time to celebrate the bright future of the Royal Navy and the massive impact its two new aircraft carriers will have on Portsmouth when they arrive here later this decade.

The 65,000-tonne warships are the largest vessels ever built for the senior service.

The eight-page supplement features exclusive insights and analysis of the £6bn project to build the nation’s new flagships.
