Katherine Jenins was selected to record the first recording of God Save The King by BBC Radio 4 on Friday from a rural church in Sussex.

The words of the British national anthem have been changed from ‘queen’ to ‘king’ in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death on Thursday, as her son King Charles III now takes the throne.

Katherine, 42, was in a small church in a remote area of ​​Sussex recording when she received the call from the BBC.

The opera singer had a moment of silence and prayer before recording the song, singing from the heart during this incredibly emotional time.

The anthem closed the extended World at One program on BBC Radio 4 on Friday afternoon.

Katherine has sung the national anthem many times and said she will always ‘cherish’ her memories of singing it for the Queen.

She said: ‘I only have the best memories of singing the national anthem for Her Majesty The Queen, memories I will always cherish.

‘While my heart is heavy with sorrow; To sing this today, for the first time, is a great honor and was sung with the belief that the reign of King Charles III will be happy and glorious!’

Katherine wrote a heartfelt tribute to the Queen on Thursday, writing on Instagram: ‘On this heartbreaking day, my thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with King Charles, the Royal Family and with my fellow Britons and Commonwealth members around the world.

‘Your Majesty, thank you for all you have given. You have been a selfless constant in our lives, knowing just what to say in our darkest hours.

Katherine said: 'To sing this today, for the first time is a huge honor and was sung with the belief that King Charles III's reign will be happy and glorious!'

‘You inspired us with your dignity, your duty and your grace. I am proud to have lived during your reign, honored to have sung for you and privileged to have known you. Rest in peace and rise in glory madam.’

The Queen’s son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III as the world mourns his mother, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.

All of Her Majesty’s children were rushed to Balmoral on Thursday after doctors became ‘concerned’ about her health. Hours later, she died, surrounded by her family.

At 18:30 on Thursday, her death was confirmed. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said: ‘The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon. The King and Queen Consort will stay at Balmoral tonight and return to London tomorrow.’

The Queen’s death will see Britain and her Commonwealth realms enter a ten-day period of mourning as millions of her subjects in the UK and abroad come to terms with her passing.

As her son ascends the throne, there will also be a celebration of her historic 70-year reign, with her reaching her platinum jubilee this year – a landmark unlikely to be reached again by a British monarch.

Charles, the King, said: ‘The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty the Queen, is a moment of the greatest sorrow for me and all members of my family.

‘We deeply mourn the passing of a beloved sovereign and a much-loved mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.

“During this period of grief and change, my family and I will be comforted and supported by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which the Queen was so widely held.”
