The meeting of the two ships

The Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier is currently on contractor sea trials and was at anchor just off the coast of Invergordon.

The cruise ship made a close pass to the mighty carrier so that ships company and contractors alike on HMS Queen Elizabeth could get a close look at the liner.
