The lyrics of United Kingdom's Anthem remind me so much of the Hail Mary Prayer esp in how it praises Mary as the embodiment of Virtues and moreso of how she is Blessed by God. So it makes me wonder if any Anglo-Catholic and esp underground closet English Catholics back when the UK as openly anti-Catholic.... Ever sang the song directed to May but fooling people thinking they are being patriotic citizens of Britain or are honoring Queen Victoria and later the Windsor Queens? I know God Save the Queen came from an old French song devoted to a King surviving the Illness so it makes me wonder if regional variations from Catholic countries have also been used for prayers for women monarchs? On a theological can this song be used to venerate Blessed Virgin Holy Mother Mary?
