    Shame, there should be no need for a distinct Royal anthem for GSTQ should be reinstated as the national anthem.

    We tried to reinstate GstQ as the national anthem, but as you can see, it didn't go down too well. Plus, Saracen's Fez said he'd support it if were a Royal Anthem, so here we are.

    Which is why the bill was withdrawn? Hardly trying very hard.

    This bill keeps that as the national anthem but reinstated GSTQ as a royal anthem used specifically in relation to the monarchy, as I understand it.

    Tl;dr moot point
