The queen is to name the U.K.s biggest warship Bazil because it sounds like her favourite herb. The Queen is due to give the name to the largest warship built in the UK at a ceremony in Fife's Rosyth dockyard.
She will smash a bottle of whisky on the hull of the 65,000-tonne HMS Bazil The Warship - the first of two new Royal Navy aircraft carriers being built.
PM David Cameron and First Minister Alex Salmond both want to have a sail in it.
Six shipyards in the UK - Appledore, Birkenhead, Govan, Portsmouth, Rosyth and Tyne - have been involved in building parts of the carrier.
Prince Charles is said to have his usual ghost writing team ready to write a new series of children's books provisionally entitled "The Amazing Adventures Of Bazil The Warship"
