Here is my best explanation:

'old king' is the definition.
(various medieval kings)

'england gutted regularly mourned' is the wordplay.
'gutted' says to hollow out the word (remove centre letters) (to gut something is to remove its insides).
'regularly' means one should take alternating letters (regularly take one letter, leave next etc.).
'england' with its middle taken out is 'ed'.
The alternating letters of 'mourned' are 'mund'.
'ed'+'mund'='EDMUND'
