You may think that being British means an automatic obsession with the Royal Wedding, however, according to actress, Emma Thompson, you’d be sorely mistaken.

In fact, Emma thinks that frankly, we should all just stop talking about it altogether, thank you very much!

While excitement around the world is at an all-time high for the impending nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, footage has emerged of the the 59-year-old and her complete disdain for talking about the event.

“Really I have nothing to say about it,” the Love Actually star said.

The journalist off-camera pushes the subject, asking if she wished the pair well.

“Obviously, yes, but I don’t know them,” Emma replied, quite obviously agitated.

“Of course I do,” she said.

“Stop it, just stop it OK. Stop doing the ‘Oh let’s talk about the royal wedding’. Not going to talk about the royal wedding. Just give the poor kids a break.”

Emma then walks away. Awkward.

The Beauty and the Beast star revealed that her adopted son Tindyebwa is getting married next year, so she is much more concerned about his nuptials then that of the Prince.
