Announced on Catherine’s birthday? What a couple. Me, me, me ...

They are the sort of people who would announce a pregnancy at somebody else's wedding.

I'm not surprised as they must have received some flack---constantly. Quite an unpopular couple.
They didn't exactly make a good job of remaining anonymous being that Harry had blamed the media for his mother's death.

It doesn’t seem to be an announcement, just a comment from somebody who knows them. Though I must say it seems fully in line with their wish to keep them private lives private so I say “Good for them”.

Well, The court case starts tomorrow in which she is suing the Daily Mail!!

lemsip Sat 09-Jan-21 22:44:19

I mean on monday not tomorrow!

Seems that Charles and Camilla have had to turn comments off on one of their social media. Too much hate mail.

Their, not them.

That should be interesting Lemsip, the DMphobes who are also H&Mphobes won’t know who they want to lose grin

They cant stay away, so why pretend?

I don't quite get it, because isn't spotify a social media company, and Netflix to an extent? They have recently signed deals with these, so I guess they still want to get themselves heard but without the constant criticism.

Blossoming Sat 09-Jan-21 22:55:03

Spotify and Netflix are streaming services.

I'm not up with all this, so can you explain when Meghan and Harry do all that chit chat stuff on spotify will they be able to voice their opinions?

Blossoming Sat 09-Jan-21 23:05:22

Ellianne they are like TV programmes or podcasts. I don’t use Spotify or Netflix (other streaming services are available) and I have no idea what content they’re planning. I think somebody on GN said they would be interviewing people.

Hmm sounds like one and the same to me:
Spotify should be considered a social media network. Why?Spotify, with its integration with Facebook and Twitter, has allowed listeners to leverage their following on those social networks, simultaneously creating a social platform of their own.In this respect, by offering us another way to connect and socialize with friends, Spotify has become the newest social network.

Too little too late springs to mind.

Hey, Lucca I did not start this thread. grin

Urmstongran Sat 09-Jan-21 23:27:56

It was on the news tonight & makes front page tomorrow in some newspapers.

I don’t ‘do’ social media (apart from GN) of any kind but this high profile couple most certainly do so I suppose it must be a big announcement?

lemsip Sat 09-Jan-21 23:31:26

I don't do social media either!

lemsip Sat 09-Jan-21 23:38:05

Meghan has lost each part of the case so far as the lawyers deal with each part before the main part. She is suing over privacy re her fathers letter.. She lost first part because it was proved she had already released the content of the letter to friends and then invaded her own privacy with the book finding freedom! This is on bbc news each time!

merlotgran Sat 09-Jan-21 23:53:33

I think it's just another example of H&M ditching something that no longer serves them.

They had more than 10 million Instagram followers but they will cut them loose because they now have bigger fish to fry.

The quote that they have received an 'almost unsurvivable amount of abuse' is very 'Meghan' and inappropriate for these times of real suffering and grief.

In short, they don't know the half of it!

Yes, but we are not proclaiming it to the world,

Sorry Urms, I don't know if you were being ironic about the pregnancy announcement, apologies if that is the case and I'm being dim.

But there were many reports that Meghan actuallydid announce her pregnancy at a wedding - that of Eugenie.

Galaxy Sun 10-Jan-21 08:23:25

I would imagine she has received enormous amounts of abuse, women on social media tend to.

Calendargirl Sun 10-Jan-21 08:24:33

Mmm, yes Fanny Cornforth, I rather think Urmstongran was being ironic!

🤣
