HMS Queen Elizabeth's first deployment

On Saturday, Britain's new flagship aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, set off on its maiden operational deployment to demonstrate our commitment to confronting future threats alongside international partners and seize new opportunities for Global Britain.

  • As we embrace our future as a truly Global Britain, the UK government is committed to working with our friends in the international community to tackle the challenges of tomorrow.
     
  • That is why Britain's new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, is leading our Carrier Strike Group across the globe, covering 26,000 nautical miles, to work hand-in-hand with our friends - demonstrating our commitment to the Indo-Pacific region, and upholding the rules-based international order.
     
  • This deployment symbolises Global Britain in action - showing that we are strong on our own, but even stronger with our allies as we work together to defend our shared values across the world.
