There have been no alterations to the design of HMS Prince of Wales, she is being built to plan.

The Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 allocated £60 million to further optimise a Queen Elizabeth Class carrier to better meet the demands of the Landing Platform Helicopter role. This includes Communications Systems for amphibious operations, improving the domestic services in the aircraft carrier for Royal Marines, providing ammunition storage, increasing the number of helicopter operating spots and expanding the operating capacity for helicopters.
