HMS Princess Royal. One of two Lion class battlecruisers. The next British battlecruiser, HMS Queen Mary, was very similar. Built 1909-1913. Powerful for the time main armament of 8x13.5 inch guns. Insufficent armor protection. These ships were disappointments, never obtaining their designed speed of 33 kts. Princess Royal overstrained her engines making 28 kts. during trials. "Expensive second-rate ships" and "the least satisfactory ships built for the RN in modern times."
