McDonald’s is the latest brand to jump on the hype ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, changing up its jingle to mark the occasion.

The fast-food chain made a fitting tribute to Her ‘Maj’s 70th year on the throne by teaming up with the teaming up with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to re-record their jingle.

Check out a clip of the new rendition below: 

Over the Bank Holiday, the new jingle will replace the pre-existing ‘ba-da-ba-ba-ba, I’m lovin’ it’.

Instead, the ‘Five Note Sting’ will feature a whole range of instruments playing the same beloved sound, in a fitting grand gesture to mark the occasion.

At the end, the slogan will instead say: “One’s lovin’ it”. How very fancy.

If you see or hear a McDonald’s advert on the TV or radio over the four-day weekend, it will feature the new jingle, instead of the standard one.

We’re sure Liz will be absolutely thrilled, of course.

That’s not all Maccies are doing to mark the Jubilee – they’re also putting on a competition through the McDonald’s App.

The competition will offer lucky winners the chance to win one of 70 china McDonald’s sets, so they can eat their Big Mac like a true royal.

Running between May 31st and June 6th, those who enter will be in with a chance of bagging a china milkshake, fries and burger holder.

We’re not sure if Queenie ever eats McDonald’s, but if she does, we’d like to imagine she’d use these…

The final tribute McDonald’s are making is the renaming of one of its most popular burgers, the Quarter Pounder with Cheese.

For the duration of the Bank Holiday, it’ll instead be called the Royale with Cheese, in a cheeky nod to the Pulp Fiction scene.

You’ll also be able to get the renamed burger for 99p on the McDonald’s App, which offers a saving of £2.60. 

God bless the Queen.
