Elizabeth II et Philip: cinquième jour en Ecosse

La reine Elizabeth II a baptisé vendredi un porte-avions géant à son nom, fierté de la Royal Navy, lors d'une cérémonie grandiose au chantier naval écossais de Rosyth (Fife). Elle a brisé une bouteille de whisky sur la coque au lieu de l'habituel champagne.

With whisky replacing the more traditional champagne at the ceremony, Queen Elizabeth II will smash a bottle of Islay malt whisky against the HMS Queen Elizabeth at the event at Rosyth Dockyard, where the 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier has been assembled and fitted out.Queen Elizabeth II and First Sea Lord Admiral Sir George Zambellas at the formal naming ceremony for HMS Queen Elizabeth, the Royal Navy's biggest ever ship, on July 4, 2014 in Fife, Scotland.
