    "In exactly 100 days, the Royal Navy’s biggest ever warship will be named by the Queen, who will smash a bottle of champagne on the 65,000 tonne aircraft carrier’s bow and name the vessel after herself.

    The ceremony will mark 16 years of work on the £6.2bn project which now employs 10,000 people at 100 firms working in every region of the country."

    "Scale of new Royal Navy’s new aircraft revealed"

    "Massive in both scale and complexity, the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carriers are approaching a “major milestone” in their construction, with just 100 days to go until the formal ceremony to name the first ship, say project heads.

    HMS Queen Elizabeth will be officially christened by the Queen in a ceremony at Rosyth in Fife, where it is currently being fitted out, 
on 4 July."

  4. I would not choose Titanic to compare it to. That one didn't turn out so well. You may have heard about it, There were newspaper reports.
  5. I wouldn't compare it to the Houses of Parliament either, ones full of bone idle freeloaders, the others the seat of government ;)
