it turns out that the publicity shy couple were so keen on privacy that they didnt even want the £38 million wedding we were forced into paying for them, blimey, they could have said something earlier, like before the public coughed up a fortune for security, A list celeb guests and more melodrama than an x factor sob story, they are now claiming they wanted none of that because " it didnt feel like their day ", but they went through it anyway, bless em. They told Oprah that they actually had a private exchange of vows three days before, just the two of them were present as well as the archbishop of canterbury - perfectly normal behaviour, , now that they have aired all their laundry in public to the whole world, they are off to work on that private life they claim to crave, At least until the next big interview comes up

As have all the criticisms and sarcastic comments made to anyone who does want to talk about H & M Lucca.

suziewoozie Mon 03-May-21 12:38:13

I mean really - these threads have become a parody of themselves have they not?

But it’s all been said ( many many many many times)

Ellianne I hope that you don't think that I'm being horrible to Annie or op, or indeed anyone else.
That's not my intention at all.
I'm neither pro or anti M&H. I like a bit of gossip though.

Ellianne

Why are some posters so horrible to Annie and to me (and to earnshaw here) on these threads? I can accept you have different opinions on the subject but your contributions add nothing and just provoke dissent.
If you are not interested, please go away!

And I only came on GN to post a photo of my long coastal path walk, so I am certainly not sitting around waiting for the next M & H thread like some.

Oh come on , lighten up. You must admit the h and m thing has been done to death
I don’t sit around waiting for them either......I was notified of the new thread .,

I agree Elliane although expect them to ask HQ to remove your post as they hate any suggestion of staying away from a thread they don’t like.😄
Why do they post horrible comments? I have my own theories on that.
Yes Earnshaw all that you say is true, and I very much doubt that H and M are done yet, because actually they don’t really want a quiet life at all, they need to be noticed.

Smileless2012 Mon 03-May-21 12:41:31

Me too Fanny it brings a little bit of light relief to an otherwise rather boring daysmile.

Alegrias1 Mon 03-May-21 12:41:43

At least Alegrias is on the right lines with her comment about this all pervasive celebrity culture.

That was sarcasm. confused I don't think the Pope is a celebrity is he? I can't keep up these days.....

Prince Harry goes 'live' in la la land
For someone who wants privacy hmm you could have fooled me.

Smileless2012 Mon 03-May-21 12:43:11

Serious question ..... why were you notified about a thread on a subject you clearly dislike Lucca?

Anyone's entitled to start a thread and if people don't want to read and/or post they don't have too. Interesting how those who 'hate' anything posted about H & M always come on any thread that's about themhmm.

Oh come on!
It's like a special family event!
We all know our roles and play up to them.
We're all having a bit of a laugh. 😃

Are you Fanny are you really ? A bit of a laugh?

Who on earth would have that comment removed ? It’s nothing to do with guidelines.

Do share your theories.

Ok I’ll go.

Of course he's a celebrity -he has the Popemobile.!

When I saw the title I thought maybe something had happened, wasn't that stupid of me!!

Alegrias1 Mon 03-May-21 12:45:07

Fortuitous arrangement of topics in the Trending box.....

I had to google it (glutton for punishment) and indeed, yes, there was some event in LA last night. About vaccines. And you know what, the Pope spoke there! And President Biden! Is there no end to this celebrity culture?

Amazingly nobody seems to have mentioned any weddings....

I should watch out Alegias, you'll be inundated with info about H&M and all royal paraphernalia in your inbox from now on!
I shall come to you for all the latest gossip. That way my inbox will stay free of itgrin

and what do your contributions add might I enquire? These threads are showcases so often for gossip, speculation, meanness and much else. Some of us come on here to challenge such posts and redress the balance. And just stop telling us to go away, it’s really not acceptable and as a strategy it’s a massive fail

FannyCornforth Mon 03-May-21 12:46:44

lemongrove erm, yes. I am (probably was now) having a laugh.

Ellianne Mon 03-May-21 12:48:59

I don't think the Pope is a celebrity is he?
I'm not sure but don't you have to secure tickets to attend a papal mass?

Methinks someone’s feeling a bit sore and hard done by because of a deletion elsewhere. 😂

FannyCornforth Mon 03-May-21 12:50:40

It was me. Mea culpa. I told Lucca about this thread on another thread.
Once again I was 'having a laugh'.
I'll behave myself now and leave you to get on with it.

Has anyone seen the programme on Discovery + Called Meghan and Harry, Recollections May Vary ?

We don’t have the Discovery Plus Channel, maybe some of our American GNers can comment on what happened. I think it aired over the weekend.

Asking for a friend 😉

Ro60 Mon 03-May-21 12:51:46

Elliane so far can't see anyone being horrible.
fanny So true a family event - but I may be the one quietly sat in the corner sipping my gin.
