HMS Prince of Wales has completed Basic Sea Training helping to establish her lethality and ability to sustain operations.

The 65,000-tonne Royal Navy vessel has been undergoing numerous different simulations to prepare for active deployment, and will now move on to Carrier Sea Training later this year.

In a tweet from the carrier's official Twitter account, Prince of Wales said the training had been rounded off by an inspection from the head of Commander Fleet Operational Sea Training.

"A final inspection by Commodore Stacey, head of rounded off a month of training today!

"Definitely some happy faces this afternoon.

"Onward to Carrier Sea Training later this year."

Earlier this month the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier took part in training with three British Army Apaches developing their take-off and landing capabilities.

The training marked the first time an Apache and an F-35 have operated from the same flight deck.
