The new flagship of Great Britain – Blick

The ship succeeds the Royal Yacht Britannia, which was decommissioned in 1997 and has since been anchored as a museum in Scotland. Construction of the new ship is set to begin in 2022. Trade shows, summits and diplomatic talks will be held there, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 56, announced Sunday night. The car does not yet have a name.

Johnson said the ship “will reflect Britain’s burgeoning position as a large and independent maritime trading nation.” It is “a clear and powerful symbol of our commitment to being an active player on the world stage”. The cost should be around 200 million pounds sterling (255 million Swiss francs), and the vessel should have been in operation for about 30 years. Conservative MPs are urging the building to be named after Prince Philip (99), the recently deceased husband of Queen Elizabeth II (95).
