Royal visit to Mary Rose museum in Portsmouth

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have toured the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth, 38 years after the prince first dived down to the wreck of the Tudor warship.

The £36m museum, opened last May, reunited the wreck with the 19,000 artefacts discovered with it.

The prince, who is president of the Mary Rose Trust, described watching the ship being raised from the seabed of the Solent in 1982.

The royal couple also visited HMS Illustrious, which spent Christmas in the Philippines helping victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
