King Charles is honoring Tina Turner with a musical tribute fit for the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll.

After the legendary singer’s death was announced on Wednesday, the newly crowned royal allowed the Band of the Welsh Guards to perform her 1989 hit “The Best” during the changing of the guard in front of Buckingham Palace on Friday.

The group was also joined by the First Battalion Welsh Guards Corps of Drums, Hello! reported, for the ceremony where The King's Guard hands over responsibility for protecting Buckingham Palace and St. James's Palace to the New Guard.

Charles, 74, first met Turner in 1986, when she performed at The Prince’s Trust All-Star Rock Concert at Wembley Stadium in London.

In a December 2021 episode of Apple Fitness+'s Time to Walk series, Prince William revealed that his mother, Princess Diana, would play “The Best” for him and Prince Harry to ease their back-to-school anxieties.

"One of the songs I massively remember and has stuck with me all this time, and I still, to this day, still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner's 'The Best' because sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment. And my mother, she'd be driving along, singing at the top of her voice,” William said at the time.

"When I listen to it now, it takes me back to those car rides and brings back lots of memories of my mother,” he added.
