Opera soprano Laura Wright reveals she once offered to give the Queen singing lessons after the monarch ‘broke into song’ during meet and greet at a Diamond Jubilee event

Opera singer Laura Wright has revealed she once ’embarrassingly’ offered to give the Queen singing lessons after hearing the late monarch performing a few bars of a song. 

The opera singer, 32, revealed on Good Morning Britain this morning that Her Majesty ‘broke into song’ when they met for the first time alongside  Gary Barlow and other members of the music industry during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations. 

She said: ‘Rather embarrassingly so, I was meeting the Queen alongside Gary Barlow and other members of the music industry talking about her Jubilee celebrations and performing the piece of music called Sing.

‘She broke into part of the song which we were all quite shocked by.’

She recalled: ‘The Queen mentioned, “Oh of course Laura you would be able to that that much better then me”, and I said, “Of course not your majesty but I could give you some singing lessons.’

And after revealing she had gone on to offer the Queen ‘singing lessons’ in the awkward moment, Laura continued: ‘I think…anyone in that moment you don’t know what to say.

‘You’re trying to think of something really clever and intelligent to say and that’s just what came out.’

‘But she smiled and it is definitely something I am going to remember forever. ‘ 

Laura has previously met the Queen and has performed at her 90th birthday, her Diamond Jubilee, and the recent Royal Albert Hall concert ‘to kick-start celebrations for her 70 years on the throne’.

A historic rendition of God Save the King which took place ahead of the resumption of the third Test between England and South Africa as sport returned around the country with touching tributes to Queen Elizabeth II.   

Ahead of the third day’s play at the Oval there was a poignant commemoration of the Queen, followed by an impeccably observed minute’s silence.

The silence was broken only by a one-bell chime from a member of the Irish Guards before Laura sang the national anthems of both South Africa and England.

The singer gave birth to a baby girl named Orlaigh Grace, her second child with her husband Harry Rowland in July. 

Royal fanatic Laura revealed she was delighted to have delivered the little one during The Queen’s Jubilee weekend. 

She said to Hello! magazine: ‘It’s a day that will go down in history forever. But now it’s super-special to us too because it’s also Orlaigh’s birthday. We’re over the moon about that.’

She married Harry in a star-studded Suffolk ceremony in December 2018.   

Already a mum to daughter Ottilie, two, Laura claimed she was ‘convinced’ her latest arrival would be a boy since her pregnancy was ‘so different’.

The soprano went into a labour two weeks after her due date in scenes which involved a hectic car drive to the hospital with her former rugby player partner, 33.
