The spokesman added: “HMS Prince of Wales will cross the Atlantic with her task force ready to push the boundaries of unmanned technology and the tactics used by Britain’s two new Queen Elizabeth-class airlines.

“Along with notable port stops in New York, Halifax in Canada and the Caribbean, the Prince of Wales Task Force will work closely with US allies over the next three months, using F-35B jets and unmanned aerial vehicles to support the Royal Naval Aviation of the future.

“As the flagship of the fleet HMS Queen Elizabeth will also be deployed this autumn in the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas at the heart of a powerful Royal Navy task force, this means that both British aircraft carriers will use F-35B jets that can carry thousands of miles apart.”

Commander Captain Richard Hewitt said: “Bringing the HMS Prince of Wales Task Force across the Atlantic for the remainder of this year will not only push the boundaries of UK aviation activity, but strengthen our close working relationship with our closest ally. .
