The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is right around the corner and it looks like everyone is doing something to mark this momentous occasion.

Alterations marking Her Majesty’s 70 years of service include a stately re-recording of their famous jingle, a name change to a much-loved burger and an upgrade to Big Mac meal packaging.

To kick off the celebrations, the instantly recognizable McDonald’s Jingle has been reimagined by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The “Five Note Sting”, played at the end of its commercial and familiar to millions simply as “ba da ba ba ba”, is now fit for a queen.

The 35-person ensemble recorded a version including brass, strings, percussion and woodwinds, hoping to earn a royal seal of approval.

The new jingle will replace the original in the brand’s TV and radio advertisements over the Jubilee weekend, along with the “one’s lovin’ it” slogan.

The final part of the Jubilee celebrations will see McDonald’s change the name of an iconic burger for the duration of the weekend.
