Special Order—Subject to Availability
The most iconic sound of the coronation will be the familiar song of our national anthem. First recorded as a prayer more than three thousand years ago and used at every coronation since 973AD, this prayer has become part of who we are as a nation.

God Save the King uses the words of our national anthem (first and last verses) and takes us on a tour of the UK, celebrating so many aspects of our wonderful culture: our creativity and sportsmanship, our NHS and frontline services, our rich agricultural and maritime heritage, our forward-looking urban regeneration alongside our rural and seaside traditions and of course our unrivalled ability to queue!

Introduced by Classic FM's Anne-Marie Minhall, packed with fun historical facts and illustrated with fantastic detail and storytelling in each spread, God Save the King will be the perfect accompaniment to the nation's coronation celebrations and for those wanting to know more about our most famous song.
