Her Majesty the Queen names UK's future flagship

The Prime Minister, Secretary of State for Defence and First Sea Lord joined the celebrations, along with allies from around the world and more than 3,500 people involved in the design and construction of the largest warship ever built in the UK.
The event marked the first time in more than 15 years that the Queen has christened a Royal Navy warship and in time honoured tradition, Her Majesty gave her blessing as a bottle of finest Scotch whisky shattered against her hull.
The Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows joined the celebrations in a dramatic fly past. An airborne procession showcasing the Royal Navy’s past and present air capabilities followed. This included several Sea Hawks and present day Merlin, Lynx Wildcat, Chinook and Sea King.
