At her Diamond Jubilee Review at Spithead on 26th June 1897, Queen Victoria was represented by the Prince of Wales. He was in the Royal yacht 'Victoria and Albert II', which can be seen to the right, flying the Royal standard. The Prince is reviewing the fleet including 21 battleships and 56 cruisers. On the left the 'Renown' leads the line of the Majestic-class battleships. Contemporary accounts state that when the Royal yacht reached the 'Renown', she anchored and made a signal that the Prince desired on board the presence of all the flag-officers and their immediate members of staffs.
