I watched the short video and there it said that the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh had arrived in the HMS Magpie. I believe that was the Duke’s command! I had no idea he had captained it around the Mediterranean with his wife on board! Very cool!
I always found it interesting how the Queen only visited Greece once, but it must have made sense if they were in the area!
