Katherine Jenkins performs at NCHQ

January 27, 2017

Katherine Jenkins – British Forces Foundation Trustee – performed for hundreds of staff at Navy Command Headquarters in Portsmouth.

The mezzo soprano wowed the crowd during her morale-boosting visit with the Charity. Following the performance Katherine met with some of the staff.

It was then off to HMS Iron Duke where Katherine was given a tour of the Type 23 frigate, which was docked in Portsmouth naval base.

Ninety-six men and women – about half the ship’s company – grouped in Iron Duke’s hangar for a quick snap with Katherine before they ran through their recent six-month stint with NATO around northern Europe.

The singer was given access all areas, watching a combat demonstration in the operations room, chatting with engineers in the engine control room and chefs in the galley. She also chatted with crew in the mess decks to learn about the strains long periods away place on Forces families and the sacrifices they make.

“It was a pleasure and a delight to be able to host Katherine Jenkins on-board Iron Duke,” said the frigate’s Commanding Officer Commander Steve Banfield. “She was visiting this ship in her role as Trustee of the British Forces Foundation and as an avid supporter of the forces.

“My team really enjoyed the visit and she took the time to speak to as many people as possible. Her visit will be remembered long into the future.”
