They are relatives, dear Lenora. No need to be friends then.

A 2:1 is a solid “B+” and in some cases the seeker of an advanced degree may have most of their education paid for accordingly.
Ah, but a First Class Honours degree holder is strongly encouraged to aim for a Doctorate which is free. Sophie Winkleman, your Bête Noire, finished at Trinity Hall Cambridge (the finest school in the UK- top 5 in the world) with a double first class honour (according to Ariana Huffington)!
Sophie shares in the upper class custom of eschewing what some would consider the “bad form” of braggadocio. One doesn’t see the “Honours” on her “Bio” pages though it no doubt would greatly increase the respect for her. Instead, she usually is dubbed “just” an actress amongst British tabloid media. Again, Sophie shows a refinement lacking in many and it may handicap her career.
It has been very kind of you to explain the British university system to an ill-bred bunch like us.
Good for Sophie that she succeeded so well! It may be worth asking if she would have attended the "finest school in UK" if she would not come from a wealthy family. What do you think about it? But speaking of braggadocio, it is nice to learn that she is different from her mother-in-law. Are you sure that they are on good terms with each other? Moreover, I don't believe that academic degrees have much to do with acting talent and artistic abilities. I tend to think that many of the "best" actors, singers and writers were working class heroes. You can not teach or learn such things, although certain people keep believing it-- for well known reasons.

My closing commentary: I think Sophie Winkleman is a pretty woman. From what I have seen she is not untalented. At almost thirty-one the chances for a big career are nonetheless vanishingly small. Especially as there has been not one successful engagement in the US for her since they moved to Los Angeles. But at least she will be starring in a mini-series by Freddie's mother's dear friend Mr. Fellowes, right? Connections.

'The importance of being Sophie Winkleman' - the best reality show we've watched at TRF lately, isn't it?? Hey Nonesuch Honey, my boyfriend is seriously thinking of creating a TRF account, just to praise my intelligence, pulchritude and what else??! Ah, he'll elaborate on my academic career better than anyone. Wink wink for now!

The importance of Sophie? May I ask what makes the girl so special? Has she ever won an Oscar or at least a BAFTA award? Lady Frederick Windsor is very pretty and statuesque but now she needs to prove to me at least that she deserves a more lustrous career, either in Hollywood or in Europe. The European cinema is an interesting field for an actor, in my opinion. I shall be waiting then.

Homegirl is beautiful! Where has she been hiding and how did Freddy get with her.

Sophie Winkleman, Lord Frederick Windsor's wife, retains her surname to spare the blushes of the Royal family - Telegraph

Sophie Winkleman, who appeared topless in the film Love Live Long, says if a risqué part comes up, she will 'weigh it up' with her husband.

Why would he do that? It is so bad. Lord Frederic has not got any formal acting training.

Thanks!
Due to some reason, I misread the sentence. "Two and Half Men" is not a good quality TV show. It is just a compilation of flat humour.

The episode was rather funny but Sophie added nothing to the episode, although I doubt she was supposed.

I agree that it's more or less cheap project,but there are people enjoying it.Maybe Sophie wants to stay busy anyway,by participating in different kinds of tv-shows.

It's called 'work', which is what actors and actresses aspire to. Otherwise they are unemployed.

The episode of Two and a Half Men in which Sophie Winkleman appeared was aired in the US on 21 November. It was watched by 15.8 million viewers - source
The show is in the top 10 US television programs based on primetime broadcast total viewership - source

So, whether one likes the show or not, the offer of a guest role on Two and a Half Men is an opportunity not to be passed up.

One of them looks grey, the other one totally dehydrated... Wonder what these kids do at home. Ok seriously now, I cannot believe Sophie set her foot out of the house looking like that. I'm not saying this because she's part of the BRF now, married to a Lord blah blah (), how could any woman appear like that in public?! It's inconceivable!

Indeed. She ages so rapidly, maybe they don't eat well, what can I say...
