Here’s how radio covered the Royal Wedding
Royal Wedding fever gripped the nation over the past week, and of course radio programs around the country took the opportunity to create some great wedding-inspired content.
Here’s how commercial radio covered Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle over the past week:
Nova sent Sydney Breakfast hosts Fitzy and Wippa all the way to London, alongside National Drive hosts Kate, Tim and Marty – who all broadcast from the UK all week.
It was a week of mischief and mayhem, but one of the clear highlights was the unveiling of Fitzy and Wippa’s Royal Wedding swimsuits…
Avert your eyes!! We are wearing official #RoyalWedding swimsuits. You've been warned. 😂😂😂

While Kyle and Jackie O decided to stay in Australia, they celebrated just as hard as anyone, putting together a Royal Wedding Drinking Game.
Rules included ‘Drinking when you see a shot of Beatrice wearing a stupid hat’, ‘Drink when they call it wedding of the year’ and ‘Drink when they show a montage of Harry growing up’.
Kyle may have gone a bit hard on the juice though…
Heads up, Prince Harry & Meghan Markle… This is what you can expect from married life. 🙊🇬🇧

Will and Woody pulled off one of the funnier Royal Wedding-related stunts with an on-air segment they called the Royal Wedging.
The premise was simple. Listeners called in to tell the boys jokes, and if they laughed, their undies were pulled higher and higher until either the undies snapped or they were pulled over their heads.
Mix’s Breakfast team in Adelaide Jodie and Soda introduced a “one-off, priceless” commemorative Royal Wedding Tea set.
Today's the day! The day someone might just earn themselves the Jodie & Soda Commemorative Royal Wedding Tea Set! Also some other things are happening.
