Commissioned by the Warrior Preservation Trust, this painting commemorates the tenth anniversary of the return of HMS ‘Warrior’ to Portsmouth in June 1997 after restoration in Hartlepool. The painting depicts Princess Alexandra of Denmark’s journey to England to marry the Prince of Wales, the future Edward VII. Travelling from Antwerp to Gravesend on the Royal Yacht, she was escorted by the HMS ‘Warrior’ and the Channel Fleet.
