Idol’s 1982 hit ‘White Wedding’ features the lyrics “it’s a nice day for a white wedding” so Twitter was aghast when Idol tweeted “Looks like a lovely day in UK for Harry and Meghan’s wedding” without any sarcastic emojis, references or wider context. See that tweet below.

Fans couldn’t believe the “open goal” Idol had ‘apparently’ missed by misquoting his own biggest song. For the most part, people were happy to take part in a little playful banter with the punk singer.

One Twitter user rightly pointed out that Billy Idol – hardly the most relevant singer – subtly made himself a talking point of the historical wedding via one strategic tweet.

unpopular take: he played this exactly right. no way half my twitter feed would be talking about billy idol if he didn't withhold this just right

Idol eventually caved to the Twitter pressure – although we’re pretty sure he knew what he was doing – to quote ‘White Wedding’ in its own tweet.

So it looked like ‘It was a nice day for a white wedding’ in the UK for Meghan and Harry #RoyalWedding2018 ????

Meanwhile, a recording of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming wedding ceremony is set to be released on vinyl. The audio from the royal wedding will also be the first of its kind to be released on streaming services, with Decca behind the recording.

Back in January, one intrepid DJ managed to slip his business card into Prince Harry’s pocket in an attempt to secure a performance slot at the royal’s wedding.
