KATHERINE Jenkins recorded the first version of the new national anthem for the BBC since the Queen’s death yesterday.
The classical singer’s rendition of God Save the King was recorded in a small church in Sussex.
It ended the extended World At One on BBC Radio 4 yesterday.
Jenkins, who performed for the Queen’s 90th birthday and her platinum jubilee, offered a silent prayer before “singing with all her heart”.
Yesterday she said: “I have only the fondest memories of singing the national anthem for Her Majesty the Queen.
“Although my heart is heavy with sorrow, it is a great honor to sing this for the first time today.
“It was sung with the belief that the reign of King Charles III. will be happy and glorious.”
