New royal yacht proposal backed by David Cameron

Yesterday, Imposing Headlines shared a post about the proposal of presenting a new royal yacht to the Queen, an 'idea' proposed by the education secretary.
Now the news is that the British PM David Cameron is also supportive of the plans for a new, privately funded royal yacht that will double up as a university of the seas, and provide accommodation for royalty in the ship's stern.
The idea, at one point described by Gove as a gift from the nation to the Queen on her diamond jubilee, also has the backing of the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne, according to letters sent to the prime minister by Willetts.
The £60m yacht has so far found £10m in backing from financial leaders in Canada and an unnamed £5m private donation, as well as an offer by Foyles to contribute £500,000 for books for a library.
