[.....].

They even say that the couple lived in LA whilst Sophie was working as an actress after marrying without making it a big deal which everyone knows was not the case with H&M for completely different reasons. Their life in LA was even chronicled on this thread.

It's Sophie's own quotes that say she's been welcomed, no one has told her what she can and can't do career wise etc. [.....] She credits not being fazed by the BRF to her Marxist dad.

A lot of people in the UK know who "Big Suze from Peep show" is or have seen her in something, even if she's more of a HITG (hey, it's that girl!). Although you're right that most probably wouldn't recognise the family if they saw them in the street. Personally I wonder what anyone said about her being in the awful "The Palace" a not at all veiled take on Windsor Family Values the year before they got married.

I think being in the extended Windsors is generally quite a good place to be for a lot of the perks and not as much pain as the senior royals but even then it's not a guarantee. Freddie had his drug problems all over the press and Gabriella had her uni dating life chronicled unflatteringly at the time and then that ex sold a story of their time together. You're always at risk of having your mistakes splatted all over the press.

Any interview is inevitably going to draw some sort of "hey here's another actress who married in!" just as interest in the new Marchioness of Bath spiked but that doesn't mean they're doing it better because they aren't currently in LA.

I personally think Sophie has come across quite clueless in some of her interviews in the last year, but she's entitled to talk about her experiences.

I personally do not see anything wrong of Lady Frederick Windsor saying how supportive the Royal Family is. It's similar to how Sir Timothy Laurence and Mike Tindall expressed on how The Royal Family members were welcoming and making "newcomers" feel comfortable. Yes, there may be some clashes and difficulties, but overall, from what I have gathered, the environment/atmosphere of the Royal Family is positive.

I think there would be more backlash if Lady Frederick Windsor mentioned that The Royal Family is toxic and unsupportive. Imagine the ongoing headlines on how ungrateful she is with the privileges being part of the royal family

I personally dislike the idea that you have to rebel and overthrow the ancient system to be empowered and satisfy, otherwise you are submissive or cowardice. It's almost like modernisation for the sake of it with no adquate reasons/intentions.

The Press is always out to get headlines and make endless comparison between Royal Family members and those in the Nobility not just in Britain, but around the world. [.....]

I'm glad that Sophie found the Royal Family so welcoming. However, she wasn't a working Royal and there was no pressure on her from the tabloids or from any senior courtiers in BP to fit the mould of the BRF. How do we know that, faced with the same pressures, Sophie wouldn't have left the ranks of the working royals?

Moreover it is more than likely that Lord Frederick Windsor and his wife rarely see senior royals like Charles and the Queen more than two or three times a year at most. [.....]

Here's Town and Country's article [.....] It does imply that Sophie's terrible accident and the support she received from the Windsors likely impacted her view on them.



https://www.townandcountrymag.com/so...ar-crash-help/


Quote:
Perhaps that experience contributed to her overall impression of the royal family, which is overwhelmingly positive. “I’ve been incredibly welcomed with open arms by all of them. I haven’t had a single negative experience,” she said. “The Queen’s been wonderful, Prince Charles has been wonderful, Prince William’s been heaven. They’d never tell me off at all if I wanted to play some [racy] role. Everyone’s looked after me. Oh God, please don’t make me sound too gushing.”






[.....]


IMVHO Sophie's terrible accident and year long recovery has likely made her and probably Freddie extremely grateful and thankful for everything that they have in life. So that includes her experiences and interactions with her husband's extended Windsor family members. I do believe that Charles arranged for his housekeeper and cook to provide meals for the family for a number of weejs while she was recuperating. William asked a colleague at the hospital to care for her. Sophie Wessex came to visit her in the hospital.


All in all it seems that Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor are a happy little family who are probably content with him being far down the line of succession and away from the life of senior royals.

This thread is about Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor, it is not the place to initiate discussion about, or comparisons to any other member of the royal family. Any further posts along those lines will be removed.

Please do not use unrelated threads to continue to rehash the kind of back and forth discussion that has resulted in thread closures.

Lady Frederick Windsor apparently spoke to Insider on her acting career and Royal Family with two articles being released.

Quote:
She told Insider that while she considered changing her name to Windsor because it is "rather elegant," she ultimately decided against it because she was known in the industry as Winkleman.

(...)

"People in my business in America didn't know anything about it, because they'd just see 'Sophie Winkleman' on the sheet and I'd go and do the audition and then get the job or not," Winkleman said. "And they didn't find anything out about me. They just knew me from my acting, which was quite important to me."

Winkleman said she had fond memories of working with Kutcher on "Two and a Half Men," which aired its final episode in 2015. She said the actor was "a delight, and very clever" and would spend his breaks deciding which businesses to invest in.

(...)

"I can only speak from personal experience, but when I first went to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen for the Christmas lunch, she was incredibly welcoming and kind," Winkleman said. "I've only had positive, caring, warmth from all of them."

(...)

"There's an immense level of deprivation in the UK. Children have been the main victims of the past year, and obviously their parents have been at a very high tension point because of financial worries, food worries, heating worries, and job worries," Winkleman said. "And when parents' tension goes up, the child is usually the scapegoat and the violence that's going on hasn't really been talked about enough."

Winkleman said the charity had taken on a "safeguarding" role during the pandemic, ensuring that children who are living in disadvantaged or violent homes are being cared for.

"I feel that all babies are born the same. And I think if we don't fight for the ones in tough circumstances, we're not a society worth talking about," she added.

Quote:
The actress told Insider she doesn't understand the comparisons made between herself and the Duchess of Sussex.

(...)

But despite the parallels between the two women's lives, Winkleman says they are "terribly different people."

"I don't think you can compare us. She's on a humongous, mega, global scale, and that would be my idea of complete hell," the actress told Insider. "I try to help my beloved causes at a very sort of roots level. I try and do it just by spreading the word organically through the people I know."

"But I wouldn't be able to cope with that level of intrusion for one minute. I've never been on Facebook, Twitter, any of it. I don't like the thought of it," she added.

Winkleman said she didn't have to deal with that same level of intrusion because most people in the entertainment industry had no idea who she was while filming "Two and a Half Men."

(...)

It was recently announced the Queen's 95th birthday parade at Buckingham Palace will be canceled this year, which Winkleman described as a "massive disappointment."

"It's a joyful thing to be able to celebrate the Queen's birthday because she's very beloved," Winkleman said. "But it's probably not hugely safe for that many people to gather. Thousands of people come and watch that, so it's very responsible of them to not allow it to happen this year."
