HMS Queen Elizabeth supercarrier to arrive in Portsmouth in the ‘next few weeks’

Reported in the UK Defence Journal is that the supercarrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, will arrive in its home port of Portsmouth in the ‘next few weeks’. The report said,

We asked a contact what they were told would be the most likely date:

“17th-19th of this month with Friday 18th being most likely. Obviously subject to change, weather, breakdowns, tides etc, but the tidal conditions and time frame is when best suits the RN/BAE best… currently”

Defence Minister, Harriet Baldwin MP announced the completion of dredging to enable HMS Queen Elizabeth to dock in Portsmouth.

Definitely worth a trip to Portsmouth to see it arrive.
