The Future King - The Armed Forces celebrated the birth to HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge of a son across the world.   Whist the obvious focus was the pageantry of events at Buckingham Palace and various gun salutes the Royal Navy made its own unique marking of the event.    All of HM Ships in home or international waters flew the Royal Navy Ensign from their Main Mast to mark the birth of the Prince.      The “Queen’s Frigate”, the Type 23 Frigate LANCASTER currently deployed on Atlantic Patrol Task (North) in the Caribbean the Ships’ companies added their own special congratulatory message by spelling out “Boy!” on the deck of the ship with matelots.
