Yeap it was pretty evident it would happen when CVN-77 docked in the Solent ahead of NATO exercises off Scotland, where the HMS Queen Elizabeth is on contractors sea trials, it was always going to be an ideal phot opportunity for both Navies

Amateur Drone Lands on the U.K.'s New Aircraft Carrier, No One Even Notices

The drone went undetected and the Royal Navy didn't seem to care.

Why should they? The images it could record are the same that could be found on the net, if it would be an attack drone that small amount of explosive would do minimal harm to the ship (except if detonating near the radars) though modern radars are weather proof so small explosive can't really do much harm in my opinion.

Saw her for the first time last week.

We were visiting the RN Submarine museum in Gosport, and whilst putting my eye to one of the attack periscopes on display, she hove into view! So the first time I saw her was through a submarine periscope ;D

This probably won't last due to copyright.

EDIT:  Forgot to mention you should skip to 5:15 mark to get to the right video.  The preceding material is totally unrelated.
