The Queen Has Arrived
The most powerful warship in the British navy has ignored China’s warnings.
By MARIO ALVARO LIMOS   |   3 days ago

Her Majesty’s Ship (HMS) Queen Elizabeth and her escorts of submarines, destroyers, and attack cruisers have ignored China’s warnings and have finally entered the much disputed South China Sea. The warships comprise the U.K.’s Carrier Strike Group 21, the kingdom's largest and most formidable strike group.

The HMS Queen Elizabeth and its escorts are in the region to enforce the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Seas (UNCLOS) by conducting freedom of navigation operations (FONOPS) in the hotly contested waters. The strike group has entered the South China Sea through the Bashi Channel between Taiwan and the Philippines on October 4.
