Excellent.  I had a feeling it was going to be 2 x 40-50,000 tonne carriers.

this is one time I want to see the usual inflation not "forseen" in government plans....   ie instead of 2X65k ton ships, we get 2X90k ton ships....     :-)

They'll be the Royal Navy's first full-sized aircraft carriers since 1978.

I suppose it would have to be Queen Elizabeth II to refer to your present Monarch, so I take it the ship is named for Henry and Anne B's daughter of 1588 Armada fame etc.
