Don’t ask Emma Thompson about the royal wedding: ‘Give the poor kids a break!’

While the rest us could chat for hours – days, weeks! – about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming nuptials, Emma Thompson gave a reporter short thrift when he asked her what she thought about the royal wedding.

The Oscar-winning actress was quizzed about Harry and Meghan’s big day while she was promoting a new BBC production of King Lear, which she promptly (and politely) shut down.

“Not a single thought about it in my head about it to share with you, I’m so sorry,” the Love Actually star told a Reuters reporter when asked whether she had anything to say about it. Mentioning her son’s forthcoming wedding, she continued: “I haven’t even, it doesn’t occur to me actually. My son is getting married next year so I am much more sort of dealing with that but really I have nothing to say about it.”

When the reporter asked if she really meant what she said, Emma gave a firm “really” in response.

The brave journalist persevered and asked whether she wished the couple well, to which replied: “Obviously, yes, but I don’t know them, of course I do.”

Emma finally had enough and shouted: “Stop it! Stop doing the, ‘oh lets talk about the royal wedding’… ok…really bad, really bad, not going to talk about the royal wedding.

“Just give the poor kids a break!” It’s believed that Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland has touched down in the UK as she prepares to meet the Queen and spend time with Prince Charles and Camilla, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ahead of the wedding.

Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace has shared details of the Instrument of Consent, the hand-written document which records Queen Elizabeth’s approval of the upcoming nuptials.
