You’d think if anyone had an obvious Royal Wedding joke lined up and ready to go, it’d be Billy “White Wedding” Idol.
Turns out what Idol had in mind was even better.
Like seemingly everyone else on Twitter, Idol logged on yesterday to share his thoughts about Harry and Meghan’s nuptials.
But what he didn’t say was even more noticeable than what he did.
Yup, the dude went with “lovely day” instead of “nice day,” “Harry and Meghan’s wedding” instead of “a white wedding.” It’s so close to his famous lyric, but not quite, and that not-quite-ness drove Twitter absolutely nuts.
I feel like this a missed opportunity for that ONE REFERENCE but, you can redo the tweet cos it’s a nice day to start again 🤘🏾🙌🏾
I’ll show myself out

Not everyone was mad at Idol, though. A few people respected the game he was playing.
Idol did eventually “cave” to pressure and give the people what they wanted. But only after a good 10 hours of making people beg him to say the line.
And that, folks, is how you steal the spotlight on a prince’s wedding day.
