It is also known for its contributions to literature, music, and sports, with famous authors such as William Shakespeare, musicians such as The Beatles, and sports such as football (soccer) and cricket.

The United Kingdom does not have an official national anthem.
It is a patriotic song that dates back to the 18th century and is often played on ceremonial occasions such as the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, state visits, and sporting events. The lyrics of the song vary depending on whether it is sung for the monarch ("King") or for the country (using "Britain" or "United Kingdom").

God save our gracious King!
Long live our noble King!
God save the King!
Send him victorious,
Happy and glorious,                                                                           
Long to reign over us:
God save the King!

O Lord our God arise,
Scatter his enemies,
and make them fall:
Confound their politics,
Frustrate their knavish tricks,
On thee our hopes we fix:
God save us all!

Thy choicest gifts in store,
On him be pleased to pour;
Long may he reign:
May he defend our laws,
And ever give us cause,
To sing with heart and voice,
God save the King!
