Team Buzz Bingo has been paying a “Royal Salute” to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge after they became care home callers

You may have noticed that Prince William and Kate tried their hand at bingo calling via Zoom for a care home – despite one resident shouting that their calling “wasn’t as good as it should have been!”

As a mark of honour, Buzz Bingo proposed a new bingo call: “Wills and Kate: 58!”.

The bingo operator also offered training from some of its seasoned bingo callers, should the royal couple wish to brush up on their skills before the next Zoom!

After spotting the story first thing in the morning, selling the idea to the client and whipping up a quick media alert to send to media, the team landed some royally grand coverage which went global by lunchtime.

Coverage included pieces across The Sun, MSN, Female First and BANG! Showbiz.

We even went global, with coverage on the likes of the New Zealand Herald, Viply and Yahoo! New Zealand.

Just goes to show that a bit of clever newsjacking and strong media relations can help you hit the PR jackpot!
