What does the queen sing?

Lovely wedding, but.....

Just a thought, but what does the Queen actually sing when they are singing the national anthem??

God save our gracious ME? Any boffins with the answer?

She doesn't sing. It's like singing "Happy Birthday to me", you don't, you just stand there and look awkward while everyone else gets on with it.

Re: What does the queen sing?

Probably just about anything she bloody well wants to.


I've seen a photo with a caption of Prince Philip saying "For God's sake woman, could you at least pretend you're singing?"

I'm surprised more people don't know the answer to this question. This is what Betty sings:



Not quite as well as Fred, though.

If she didn't know the words, you'd see her lips moving as she la-la-la's along to the tune.

Re: What does the queen sing?

Actually the most amusing part for me* was during the national anthem when the Mr Middleton (snr) was seen belting it out... then I realised that he was directly in front of and facing HM...

*I have a 4.5 yr old daughter who was all stary eyed at the thought of watching a princess+ getting married, what can I say...

+yes, I know that technically she wasn't a princess before getting married.

Re: What does the queen sing?

No she doesn't sing because the song is all about me me me, some countries have wonderful national anthems about how wonderful their countries are and the people in them but 'god save the queen' is just a ass-kissing.

Generally speaking trolls are fairly obvious, as you are. Hidden behind that thin veneer of communityism that you appear to hold as you are part of a forum , lies a person with the most pa thetic needs to provoke some kind of a reaction to a statement that competes with used toilet paper in lifes rubbish bin. So well done and i look forward to your next contribution like my nnext colonoscopy.

I see no reference to the kissing of donkeys in our glorious national anthem. Perhaps you're confusing it with something else?
