Britannia in Belfast

The Prince of Wales began a three-day visit to Northern Ireland in June, 1996. HRH arrived in Belfast aboard HM Yacht Britannia.

Britannia's captain was Commodore AJC Morrow CVO.

Prince Charles was greeted by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, the Rt Hon Sir Patrick Mayhew QC MP (now the Lord Mayhew of Twysden PC QC).

I took these pictures of the royal yacht myself, when it was docked at the port of Belfast.
