HMS Prince of Wales' planned departure from Portsmouth this evening has been postponed.
She had been due to set sail from the city in order to continue her training.
HMNB Portsmouth's official Twitter account posted an update, which read: "HMS Prince of Wales will not sail this evening."
Chinooks from 7 Squadron have been helping to train the carrier's air department alongside commando-carrying Merlins of 846 Naval Air Squadron from RNAS Yeovilton.
She is working towards becoming fully operational and preparing her ship's company.
Earlier this evening, HMS Prince of Wales posted a tweet about National Fish and Chip Day.
The next stage of training for the carrier is set to include working with Apache helicopters from 4 Regiment Army Air Corps.
