HMS Daring Gets Royal Visit

One of the Royal Navy’s most advanced warships hosted two royal guests within five days during a brief stay alongside her Portsmouth home.

Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring showed off her readiness to Her Royal Highness The Countess of Wessex, the ship’s sponsor who launched the ship in 2006, and His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent.

Both royal guests were updated on the ship’s recent activities which included a recent visit to her affiliated island of Guernsey.

They were also briefed on the role of the Type 45 destroyers which are committed around the world hunting pirates, drug runners or submarines, defending the fleet from air attack and providing humanitarian aid after natural disasters.
