Camilla pays trib­ute to crew of new sub­ma­rine

The Scotsman - - News -

THE Duchess of Rothe­say told the crew of the first of the UK’s new class of at­tack sub­marines they were a “great credit” to the coun­try as the ves­sel was for­mally ac­cepted by the Royal Navy.

Naval dig­ni­taries, the ship’s crew and their fam­i­lies gath­ered on the quay­side in bril­liant sun­shine for the HMS As­tute com- mis­sion­ing cer­e­mony at Faslane on the Clyde yes­ter­day. Camilla, spon­sor of the ship, was guest of hon­our at the ser­vice where the sub­ma­rine be­came an HMS.

Dressed in a cream skirt suit by Anna Valen­tine and feath­ered Philip Treacy hat, she stopped to chat to the sub­mariners and band mem­bers.
