Don't know how to spell Ophra!
Are you going to watch the interview? I am in 2 minds. I have no interest in the couple TBH- I think they have behaved very badly at a time when the Queen has enough on her plate but at the same time I am curious to see why they feel they have been so badly treated. I suspect if I do watch it I will come away thinking they have got what they deserved.
I had never heard of Megan Markle before he married her as I do not watch US TV & very few films.

Its Oprah. If you contact GN they will change the thread title for you.

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:12:24

Heavens above, another one.
I don't think that Meghan has acted in any films, I could be wrong.

Is this a record ?

nanna8 Sun 07-Mar-21 11:15:47

If you watch her in ‘Suits’ she is acting exactly as she does now. Same expression. I wonder what the real Meghan is like?

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:17:53

As I predicted, I am wrong.
Meghan has been in quite a few films, including one called Random Encounters.
And of course she voiced the elephant thing.
M&H threads are now banned on Mumsnet. I miss them, there was some right salacious gossip on there!smile

Yes, and it’s on repeat! Could someone change it please?

Lucca Sun 07-Mar-21 11:22:36

How is this thread different to
1. Megan harry and Oprah
2. Monday will you watch ..and why
3. I feel so angry with Megan and Harry

And slightly different.....
4. Royalty the queen and her family.

Just wondered.

M & H threads are now banned on Gransnet - whatever happened to free speech? All Meghan needed to say is that she wasn't happy bringing up Archie in a family that has an alleged sex offender.

Can I politely ask why you didn’t add your opinions to the other ( how many) 😱 threads.

This one spells the names of twoof the key-players incorrectly.

M&H threads aren't banned on here Newatthis, quite evidently!

I've just been reading a couple of M&H threads on Mumsnet, started in the last couple of days. Granted, they are not nearly as vitriolic as the ones on here. grin

They also have a "would you vote to keep the monarchy: yes/no" thread.

Tempted, tempted......

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:44:34

Alegrias oh, it must have been a temporary ban then! I rarely go on MN anymore, so much to time to be squandered on here instead!
The M&H business was one of the reasons the ill-fated Mumschat (RIP) was brought into being.

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:45:35

Alegrias go on! I dare you! smile

Alegrias1 Sun 07-Mar-21 11:47:05

FannyThey seem mostly to be along the lines of "what time is the interview on?" and "do you like the name Archie"?

Maybe MNers are just less invested in the whole thing than GNers.

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:53:31

Alegrias I think that they might be busy with the dump button. The M&H threads in the past were evil. There were quite a few bans doled out.

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 11:56:07

Although I suppose it might be that it's calmed down because all of the mouth frothers have been banned of course.

Blossoming Sun 07-Mar-21 11:59:00

Interesting perspective in yesterday’s Guardian..

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 12:07:29

There was one party very vocal anti Meghan poster. I did wonder if she was on here...but if you get kicked off MN do you get booted off GN too, and vice versa?

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 12:07:53

Particular, not party

paddyanne Sun 07-Mar-21 12:29:13

Its a different age range here Alegrias the older generation are the ones who still think the sun shines out of royal backsides..apart from M and H ! Younger folk ,the ones I know.tend to think the whole inherited power , wealth and privilege is out dated ,the end is nigh for Lizzie and her brood ...when the war time and post war generations are gone Monarchy will go too .

BlueBelle Sun 07-Mar-21 12:33:03

Ohhhhhh no not another thread can we talk about something else pleeeeeze

Anniebach Sun 07-Mar-21 12:49:37

paddyanne do the younger ones you know follow you and
accept a commission to photograph them

Alegrias1 Sun 07-Mar-21 12:53:56

I'm not quite as direct as you paddyanne but I do tend to agree smile

maddyone Sun 07-Mar-21 13:02:18

I don’t read Mumsnet, I think the title seems to suggest it’s for mums of young children, not adult children. But each to their own in my opinion.
