The largest and most powerful ship ever built for the Royal Navy is leaving her home port for the first time today to begin sea trials.  

The Royal Navy have shared a Facebook Live video of the HMS Queen Elizabeth, a 280-metre, 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier.

She's making her maiden voyage from Rosyth on the Firth of Forth.

The behemoth, which is set to be the nation's future flagship, has taken more than eight years to build and is the first of two new carriers built since HMS Ark Royal was scrapped in 2010.
