Queen Elizabeth meet Queen Elizabeth

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth luxury cruise liner met HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time July 6. The rendezvous of the two ships, that share the same name and who were both christened by The Queen, took place in the Moray Firth off the coast of Scotland. Cunard’s Captain of Queen Elizabeth, Inger Klein Thorhauge, said, β€œIt is a huge honour for myself and the crew of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth to meet HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time. To share the sea with the Royal Navy’s lead ship of the Queen Elizabeth-class of aircraft carrier and the largest warship ever built for the UK is a pleasure and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Commander Kyd and his crew well with their sea trials.”
