Royal Navy warship HMS Diamond has arrived in London today (Tuesday 2nd May) in advance of the forthcoming coronation.
The ship sailed up the Thames this morning from its home port in Portsmouth, garnering a fair bit of attention in Woolwich.
Constructed between 2005 and 2007 at Govan, the Type 45 Destroyer was in the news this past winter winter after it helped rescue five people aboard a sinking yacht.
A painting of another vessel that shares the same name – the HMS Diamond launched in 1874 – resides at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
