Re: HMS Prince of Wales - Unlucky Ship?
I've read she was to have been named King Edward VIII, but luckily was not.
Well, consider their namesakes. Prince of Wales was named for Edward VIII: shiny but not quite sturdy.
Duke of York was named for George VI: latecomer but eventually made a great show of things.
