Cunard’s ocean liner Queen Elizabeth met HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time on Thursday off the coast of Scotland. The two ships, which were both christened by The Queen, met in the Moray Firth during Queen Elizabeth‘s 13-night tour of the British Isles.
“It is a huge honour for myself and the crew of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth to meet HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time,” said Captain Inger Klein Thorhauge of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth. “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.”
