God Save the Queen?

“God save the Queen” is an instantly recognisable phrase of patriotic sentiment in the British Commonwealth.

In the mid-eighteenth century, during the reign of George II and the troubling period of the Jacobite rebellion, the anthem “God Save the King” was first sung, later becoming the national anthem of the UK.

Now to add to its concerns, the EU faces both a possible BREXIT, with Britain leaving Europe, and unrest on its eastern fringes.
