HMS Queen Elizabeth: 13 amazing pictures of the Royal Navy carrier during her trip to New York City 

HMS Queen Elizabeth is set to return to the USA later in 2019 which gives the perfect excuse to look back over he last trip. 

While the dates for the £3.1bn Royal Navy aircraft carrier’s second trip across the Atlantic have not been confirmed, we do know it will be this year. On her last deployment to the States, she spent a week in New York City. Here are a collection of pictures from her stay in the Big Apple:
