HMS Royal Prince
HMS Prince (sometimes also referred to as Royal Prince) was a 100-gun first rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built by Phineas Pett the Younger at Deptford Dockyard and launched in 1670. A contemporary shipyard model (today at the Science Museum London) and a drawing by Willem van de Velde the Elder (today in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam) give a good impression how she looked. Especially her stern was extensively decorated with gilded carvings.
During the Third Anglo-Dutch War she served as a flagship of the Lord High Admiral the Duke of York (later James II & VII.) During the Battle of Solebay (1672) she was in the centre of the English fleet that was attacked by the Dutch centre led by Admiral Michiel de Ruyter. The Prince was heavily damaged by De Ruyter's flagship De Zeven Provinciën in a two hours' duel and Captain of the Fleet Sir John Cox was killed on board. The Duke of York was forced to shift his flag to HMS St Michael. The Prince's second captain, John Narborough, however conducted himself with such conspicuous valour that he won special approbation and was knighted shortly afterwards.
HMS Prince was rebuilt by Robert Lee at Chatham Dockyard in 1692, and renamed at the same time as HMS Royal William. During the War of the Grand Alliance the ship saw action at the Battle of Barfleur of 19 May 1692. The Prince belonged to the red squadron and carried the flag of Rear Admiral of the Red Sir Cloudesley Shovell. She was the first ship to break the French line during the battle.
Later she was rebuilt for a second time by John Naish at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1714, relaunching on 3 September 1719. She was laid up after her re-launch and saw no service at all until she was reduced to an 84-gun Second rate ship in 1756. One year later, she was part of an unsuccessful expedition against Rochefort led by Admiral Sir Edward Hawke. Her squadron, under Vice-Admiral Charles Knowles, attacked the Île-d'Aix and forced her garrison to surrender. In 1758 she participated in Boscawen's and Wolfe's attack on the French Fortress of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia) and an indecisive skirmish with a French squadron. The following year the Royal William returned to Canada under the command of Captain Hugh Pigot to join the attack on Quebec. After the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the capture of Quebec she sailed back to England with the body of General Wolfe. In 1760 the Royal William was Boscawen's flagship when he took command of the fleet in Quiberon Bay. However, after a severe gale he was forced to return and shift his flag to the Namur. During the expedition against Belle Île of 1761 she was detached with several other ships to cruise off Brest and prevent a French counter-attack from there.
The Seven Years' War seems to be the last time that the Royal William played an active role. She was broken up in 1813.

Holy Ship! Lifelike replica HMS Royal William ship up for Auction on June 19th, 2013
On average, it takes an average 2 years for a condo project to be constructed and ready to move into in Canada. And to build a replica ship? Victor Jankovic took six... Victor Jankovic with replica ship up for Auction Victor Jankovic is a Vancouver resident who has had the ultimate retirement project. He decided to build a 1/32 scale model of the HMS Royal William – a ship launched in 1670 by the British Navy in 1672 as the “HMS Prince.” Although Victor has built approximately 18-20 model-ships in his lifetime using Italian Euromodel Kits, he wanted a model-ship that could sail in the water and not simply sit in a museum; realistic enough that it would merge with its surroundings. It was a major challenge to ensure that model-ship was not too heavy, was waterproof, remained upright when sailing, had easy access to the inner hull for motor placement and, above all, retained its aesthetic qualities. Did you know? Victor constructed the 1/32 model entirely from 2-D references. He used a composite of two versions of the HMS Royal William including: plan drawings from his Italian Euromodel Kit photos of the dockyard model provided by the U.S. Naval Academy Museum at Annapolis Six years later Victor achieved his goal of creating a model-ship that would not look out of place at the Smithsonian Institute or the Vancouver Maritime Museum. Eight feet long, six feet tall, 17 inches wide and 45 pounds in weight, the model-ship barely fits through a doorway and takes two people to move it anywhere. Did you know? Victor’s 1/32 model of the HMS Royal William ship is due to appear this June in a hardcover periodical book Shipwright: The International Annual of Maritime History & Ship Modelmaking (published by Conway Publishing & edited by Jean Hood) Auction Date Victor’s HMS Royal William will go up for auction on Wednesday, June 19, at 11:00 a.m. Maynards Auction House 1837 Main Street, Vancouver
