HRH The Princess Royal officially reopened HMS Caroline in Belfast on April 25th. As patron of the National Museum of the Royal Navy, she viewed the extensive restoration which has been undertaken on this World War I ship.

Built in 1914, this ship is the last surviving warship from the Battle of Jutland in 1916. Brought to Belfast in 1924, she has been in the city for almost 100 years. She was finally decommissioned in 2011, with the distinction of being the second-longest serving ship in navy history. 

Caroline has undergone major restoration through funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Northern Ireland Department for the Economy.
