Interestingly, I am currently reading:



and in it, there is a very brief mention that the RN considered an option to fit the surviving King George V-class battleships with Ship Launched Ballistic Missiles such as Polaris.

All hail the God of Frustration!!!

 BALTIMORE,Feb.6--LAST VOYAGE--
The battleship Kentucky, whose keel was laid in 1942 but never was completed, is towed up Chesapeake Bay toward a Baltimore scrap yard today, where it will be junked.
Construction cost $55,000,000 before work on the ship was stopped with the end of World War II. The hull remained in the Norfolk, Va., area until it was sold last year to the Boston Metals Co. of Baltimore for $1,176,666.
This picture was made from the Chesapeake Bay bridge by Sunpapers Photographer Kllis Malashuk. (AP Wirephoto) 1959

And what she might have looked like if she had been converted to guided missile battleship BBG-1:
