The newly crowned royal King Charles honored late singer Tina Turner with a musical tribute fit for the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
His Highness allowed the singer’s 1989 hit “The Best” to play during the changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace on Friday.
The Band of the Welsh Guards group was also joined by the First Battalion Welsh Guards Corps of Drums for the ceremony where The King’s Guard handed over responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace and St. James’s Palace to the New Guard, the People reported.
Charles, 74, first met Turner in 1986, when she performed at The Prince’s Trust All-Star Rock Concert at Wembley Stadium in London.
Turner died at the age of 83 after a long illness at her home near Zurich in Switzerland, her publicist Bernard Doherty confirmed in a statement on Wednesday.
