British battleship armor

This world of warships video shows how armor works but from what I have read the British armor was much better than Japanese armor so 14 inches of British armor was as good or better than Yamatos 17 inches.

Was British armor that good the article I read said the King George the 5th class were the best protected war ships in WW2. Now the torpedo protection may not have been the best but a long lance torpedo was a very good torpedo and rhe Prince of Wales had no chance.
