Lady Gaga dedicated a song to Prince William and his new bride Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge during the Radio 1 Big Weekend event on Sunday.
The Poker Face hitmaker headlined the two-day music extravaganza, which also saw The Strokes and the Foo Fighters perform in Carlisle.

Gaga took the opportunity to honour the royal couple, who wed last month, after arriving on stage in a gold coffin.

The superstar began singing a version of Nat King Cole’s Orange Colored Sky, changing the lyrics in tribute to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

She told the crowd, “I actually spent a little time when I was in the United States… wishing I was at the royal wedding. Perhaps it’s because it’s my dream, like everyone else, to be the wife of a handsome prince. Instead I get stuck with these guys in tight pants and bad attitudes. So I changed the words to Orange Coloured Sky just a little bit as an ode to our sweet Miss Kate Middleton and Prince William.”

Gaga then sang the words, “She was walking along, minding her business/When out of that orange coloured sky/Flash, bam, alacazam, a handsome prince came by… Kate was humming a tune, drinking in sunshine/When out of that cool St Andrews view/Wham, bam, alacazam, she got a look at you.”
