Record bosses are hoping the track will finally reach number one second time around as the nation celebrates the royal anniversary in June. It previously missed out on topping the charts when initially issued in the Silver Jubilee week in 1977, with claims since that the list was fiddled to prevent embarrassment to the Royal Family.
