I seem to remember us all shuffling to our feet at that point at a performance in Ashford, Kent in the late 1960s and I must say I thought it was normal practice throughout the UK at that time.
Another story had it that the King was woken up by the loud chords at the beginning and stood up thinking they were playing the National Anthem
