HMS Prince of Wales was a King George V-class battleship of the Royal Navy. It was laid down on January 1, 1937, at the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead.

The King George V-class battleships were designed to adhere to naval treaties' limitations on tonnage and armament, specifically the Washington Naval Treaty.

The primary armament of HMS Prince of Wales included ten 14-inch (356 mm) guns, housed in twin turrets.

It also had secondary armament, including 5.25-inch (133 mm) dual-purpose guns for anti-aircraft defence.

HMS Prince of Wales was commissioned into the Royal Navy on January 19, 1941.

One of its earliest missions was escorting convoys in the North Atlantic.

HMS Prince of Wales gained significant attention for its participation in the Battle of the Denmark Strait in May 1941. During this engagement, it, along with the battlecruiser HMS Hood, engaged the German battleship Bismarck and the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. Tragically, HMS Hood was sunk in the battle, but HMS Prince of Wales continued to pursue and fire upon Bismarck.

After repairs and refits, HMS Prince of Wales was sent to the Far East. It participated in the defence of Singapore but was eventually sunk by Japanese air attacks on December 10, 1941, during the Battle of Malaya.

HMS Prince of Wales sank off the coast of Malaysia, marking one of the early losses for the Royal Navy in the Pacific theatre during World War II. The sinking of HMS Prince of Wales and the battle with Bismarck were significant events during World War II, highlighting the vulnerability of even powerful battleships to air attacks. The loss of Prince of Wales and Repulse in the Pacific had a profound impact on naval strategies and emphasized the changing nature of naval warfare in the face of air power.
