Queen Elizabeth II formally commissioned into the British navy the UK's newest and biggest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, at a ceremony today.

The 65,000-tonne HMS Queen Elizabeth is the largest and most powerful warship ever built in the UK.

She said: "We are gathered here in Portsmouth today just a short distance from HMS Victory, a flagship of our seafaring past and a reminder of the debt we owe to the Royal Navy, which for more than 500 years has protected the people of this country and our interests around the world".

"HMS Queen Elizabeth embodies the best of British technology and innovation", Elizabeth II said at the ceremony on board the ship in Portsmouth on England's south coast.

"She will in the years and decades ahead represent the country's resolve on the global stage", she said.

Denisse Campos le envió duro recado a su hermana Daniella
Daniella Campos volvió a la palestra el pasado martes al hablar sobre el distanciamiento que vive con su hermana Denisse . A pesar de que en sus inicios en la televisión se mostraban muy unidas, una pelea hizo que todo cambiara.

Sections of the 920ft-long carrier were then assembled at Rosyth Dockyard from 2011.

The confection weighed nearly 24 stone and was made by Scottish cake-makers 3D Cakes.

"We love a challenge at 3D cakes so when we were given the brief to create the 8ft replica ship we knew that it would be hard but also something that we would never forget".

She added: "As the daughter, wife and mother of naval officers, I recognise the unique demands our nation asks of you and I will always value my special link with HMS Queen Elizabeth, her ship's company and their families".

That is why in May the Royal Navy tasked 3D Bakers, in Scotland, to bake a cake for HMS Queen Elizabeth's commissioning ceremony. I've been in the Royal Navy 28 years and I genuinely believe this is the best commissioning cake I've ever seen.
