Masked Singer’s Katherine Jenkins recalls ‘disastrous’ lunch she had with Queen

Katherine Jenkins appeared on Thursday's episode (September 15) of This Morning where she remembered an intimate lunch she attended with the Queen.

The opera singer, 42, sat opposite presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield and spoke fondly of her memories surrounding the beloved monarch.

The blonde beauty recalled the time she was personally invited to Buckingham Palace but was worried about her table manners.

She told the presenters: "When I was in my mid-20s I got invited to lunch at Buckingham Palace. It was a small lunch and I was worried that my table manners wouldn't be up to Buckingham Palace standards."

"They brought round a course that I didn't really understand, with a water bowl and a piece of fruit and I was thinking, 'Oh no this is a disaster!'," the Welsh-born singer added.

She continued: "I took a piece of fruit and held it in my hand. Her Majesty sensed that and in a maternal way, she was sort of like, 'Follow me.' You had to take the fruit and wash it in the water bowl and dry it with the gauze."

The Masked Singer star went on to say that she is a "big fan" and cherishes the memories of singing God Save The Queen to her.

Katherine was selected to record the first official version of the new national anthem, God Save the King.

The mum-of-two was in Sussex recording music when BBC Radio 4 got in touch with the request.

Katherine's rendition was featured at the end of the extended World at One programme on Friday afternoon.

"I have only the fondest memories singing the national anthem for Her Majesty The Queen, memories I will always cherish," she explained.

The singer added: "While my heart is heavy with grief; singing this today, for the first time is a huge honour and was sung with the belief that King Charles III's reign will be happy and glorious!"
