The Royal Anthem originated as a patriotic song in London, England, in 1745. The composer is unknown.

The anthem is performed in Canada in the presence of members of the Royal Family and by Canadians at all types of ceremonies and events usually in concert with the national anthem “O Canada”.

While “O Canada” is the national anthem of Canada, “God Save the King” is our royal anthem.
