Kate jokes with Royal Navy staff as she carries out important role given to her by Queen

Date:


Kate, the Princess of Wales met with staff from the Royal Navy Ship’s Company of HMS Glasgow today as she takes on the role of sponsor of the 21st-century warship that is still in construction. The role was approved by Queen Elizabeth II in June 2021.

The Princess posted pictures of her meeting Royal Navy staff in a Tweet on her and Prince William’s personal account.

The pictures were captioned: “A pleasure to meet some of the @RoyalNavy Ship’s Company of HMS Glasgow, learning more about their roles and what’s next on the route to getting her in the water.”

In the photos, Kate is seen with a wide smile speaking and listening to the crew.

HMS Glasgow is being built alongside River Clyde, Glasgow as the first in a new generation of frigates called the City-class.

Her flight deck will be able to accommodate helicopters up to the size of the RAF’s Chinooks.

She will also be equipped with a loading bay that can quickly adapt to house and deploy vessels, vehicles and containers, according to the Royal Navy’s website.

The ship will carry 161 personnel on board and is being developed as an anti-submarine warfare vessel.

Once deployed, HMS Glasgow will provide essential protection to the British army’s nuclear deterrent and aircraft carriers.
