Britannia: Secrets of the Royal Yacht airs Saturday 4 November 2023 on Channel 5.

What is this episode about

The Royal Yacht Britannia has sailed more than a million miles around the world and has worn many guises, from floating palace to rescue vessel, both of which Rob Bell uncovers.

Rob explores the ship from bow to stern, going from the engine room to the crew quarters, from the galley to the sitting room of Queen Elizabeth II.

He learns the Royal Yacht’s fascinating backstory, including how it was commissioned in the days before King George VI’s death, built in Clydebank, Scotland by the John Brown & Company shipyard on April 16, 1953, and based on the design of a ferry.

After 44 years of service, experts and royal commentators shed light on Britannia’s pivotal role in both public and private royal events around the world. Find out how the ship hosted royal honeymooners, served as the Queen’s floating vacation home during her annual tour of Scotland’s Western Isles, and even brought Her Majesty back to South Africa in 1995 so she could meet Nelson Mandela for the first time since 1947.
