What is The National Song of England?

Although England does not have a National Song of its own, it generally uses the National Song of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland; namely “God Save the Queen”’ as its National Song. This is also the Commonwealth Song.

This national song is sung before international football and rugby matches. “God Save the Queen” was composed in the 18th century by Thomas Augustine Arne. The first time it was ever sung was in 1745, during the Jacobite invasion of England.
