Rule, Britannia!

The Royal Navy arrived in New York Harbor Sunday, with the flagship aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth steaming in to host an Atlantic Future Forum on board. The carrier was accompanied by the frigate HMS Richmond, which came up the North River to dock at Pier 88 as the carrier anchored in the Upper Bay. A carrier based Merlin HM2 helicopter flew up the North River ahead of the Queen’s arrival and made several loops up the River during the day. Meanwhile, tanker traffic on the River was heavy.
