To wonder who comprise MN Royalty these days?

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:12:42

For me first off I would say Hully, Pagwatch, Hecate, LaQ, Buppy, Usual and LOADS of others.

They will all decry the title, so I suppose what I mean is who are the regular regulars who you see about all the time?

<btw my cat has farted, the smelly Cog/Dat>

ledkr Tue 22-Jan-13 22:17:10

I hate these threads sorry

gordyslovesheep Tue 22-Jan-13 22:19:15

yeh - not keen myself - I wonder why you care?

Meh. Everyone ignores me. Except in Recipes.

catgirl1976 Tue 22-Jan-13 22:19:58

These never end well

PandorasSocks Tue 22-Jan-13 22:20:09

Another one of these threads.

I hate them. Likely to cause offence, very boring and often put me off MN.

Salmotrutta Tue 22-Jan-13 22:20:34

<adjusts tiara>

DearPrudence Tue 22-Jan-13 22:21:21

Oh good, this again.

MamaMary Tue 22-Jan-13 22:21:30

Why do you care so much?

NotAnotherPackedLunch Tue 22-Jan-13 22:21:35

Oh dear... are we still having playground popularity rankings?


<<elbows Salmotrutta off the throne>>

threesocksmorgan Tue 22-Jan-13 22:22:15

imo there is no such thing. every one on mn is equal

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:22:18

oh I hate them too normally. Just interested really. I'll include BOF, IHeart grin, Chaos and GetOrf.

Tis not a contest though, just curious. Sometimes these type of threads reveal a new Royal Tee, or even inspire a whole new nobdies

44SoStartingOver Tue 22-Jan-13 22:22:21

I always think in terms of quality rather than justnquantity

Agree with many of yours and would add

Mad about

Who give kind, thoughtful advice, to those at a very low point.

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:22:35

Funny because the last one was lovely, with lots of new people posting or unlurking. The only bad thing to come from it was I broke my oven door.

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:23:20

sorry and Salmo and of course Val

Salmotrutta Tue 22-Jan-13 22:23:21

Puss off Pacific

Salmotrutta Tue 22-Jan-13 22:23:57

Or piss off even.

NotAnotherPackedLunch Tue 22-Jan-13 22:24:21

HoneyDragon How on earth did it lead to you breaking your oven door?

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:24:24

Honsy my oven door is broke, what do you suggest. I have to knee it to close it. It's an Assmaster as well angry

catgirl1976 Tue 22-Jan-13 22:24:24

<stages coup>

Arachnophobic Tue 22-Jan-13 22:25:00

I get the Blue Peter Badge for serial lurking grin

Salmotrutta Tue 22-Jan-13 22:25:17

<nods graciously to funnys>.

<hides tiara from Pacific>

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:25:38

three it's not a communist state you know. We all have rankings hmm

Cortana Tue 22-Jan-13 22:26:38

My regulars are not someone elses and vice versa. I luffs the ladies from the JS conception thread (wont name as they rarely venture here), they have lovely advice with a pull yourself together but here's a hand hold in the meantime.

I recognise loads of people from the FWR board on which I lurk.

MN is so diverse, there are so many brilliant posters with good advice and time to share you couldn't name them all.

Salmotrutta Tue 22-Jan-13 22:26:47

I have a tiny screwdriver and an Elm Sip.

NotAnotherPackedLunch Tue 22-Jan-13 22:27:11

Is it a bit like Animal Farm where we are all equal, but some are more equal than others?grin

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:27:57

I fixed it by getting other Mnetters to beseech the universe to let the electrical healing man find an oven door that would fit in his collection and he did.

I broke it because I decided to clean it against Hullys better judgement. The smart arsed bugger was right.

DreamySleepyNightySnoozySnooze Tue 22-Jan-13 22:29:17

I bet you've all heard of me…


AllYoursBabooshka Tue 22-Jan-13 22:29:23

See, that's why I never clean my oven.

Too risky.

ZooAnimals Tue 22-Jan-13 22:30:24

Definitely me, I received an email directly from Justine telling me. I'm actually Dame ZooAnimals of Mumsnetshire now.

This is definitely not a lie.


Nagoo Tue 22-Jan-13 22:30:29

There was a 'nice' royalty thread? shock

People should definitely delurk. Lurkers! Stop bloody previewing!

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 22:32:02

I agree with Cortana. It kind of depends where you hang out. I am sure there are thousands of Mumsnetters who have never heard of Hully or Paggy or the rest of your Royalty.

There are many posters whose names I see all the time but I would not call them Royalty, either.

AmandaWrassleworth Tue 22-Jan-13 22:32:29

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Arachnophobic Tue 22-Jan-13 22:32:29

I did once, nagoo but it was far too scary on AIBU so I returned to my lurking ways.......

DeepRedBetty Tue 22-Jan-13 22:32:59

There's people whose names you see a lot, and some of them are pretty reliable with good advice, and others are very good at making me grin, and a very few manage both. But I'm not going to name names, as (a) it's offensive to the ones whose names I forget, (b) some of the best stuff has come from people who don't post that often and (c) some of us name change fairly regularly. Like me.

NaturalBaby Tue 22-Jan-13 22:36:27

There is no such thing as MN royalty.
Is there?
<clutches pearls and hopes one is on the correct spreadsheet>

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:36:46

Yes. In fact I can think of at least two fairly recently that were nice yet mentioned royalty.

Anyway, its like a lot of terms on forums, it can be used to endear or sneer. It's more telling about how a person uses the term than the person they use it for, I find.

Not that many people use it meanly, you just tend to remember when they do.

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:37:27

So Mintyy I know you are on a flounce but who are your best loved posters?

Dreamy I have now grin

And yes lurkers, post post post. I was once one of you and scared but now I am.........mediocre

SaggyOldPregnantCatpuss Tue 22-Jan-13 22:38:02

There's no such thing as Mumsnet Royalty. you are all cunts equally! grin

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:38:22

Betty. It's still obvious it's you though grin

beachyhead Tue 22-Jan-13 22:38:56

Depends on the topic......also changes over time... Real Royalty doesn't change over time

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:40:36

aye saggy I am a cunt, tis true. I did have the builders round to look at my conversion tonight though. They were dying to know my budget but I wouldn't tell

exoticfruits Tue 22-Jan-13 22:41:02

I am always surprised that anyone thinks there is such a thing. A new poster, making there first post is just as valid(and quite possibly more sensible) than those who post a lot. I have never heard of some of the names who are supposed to be royalty!

Greensleeves Tue 22-Jan-13 22:41:28

These threads make me feel old. and uncool. like an elderly banana.

BluelightsAndSirens Tue 22-Jan-13 22:42:41

I want to include zombie but isn't there loads of zombiexyz....?

I think we need an organisational chart.

TuftyFinch Tue 22-Jan-13 22:43:08

I've never heard of Hully.

IamtheZombie Tue 22-Jan-13 22:43:15







And all the others at HQ who provide this place for us.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 22:43:27

I honestly don't think of anyone as Royalty Funnys. I have posters that I particularly like, don't we all? and a tiny number who are really not my cup of tea

Nagoo Tue 22-Jan-13 22:43:33

Can anyone smell burning?

SPsFanjo is here all the fucking time. She obviously has no life.

JudgeJodie Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:04

Please be upstanding for queen Worra and queen kungfupanda. Sorry wasn't going to comment but when I saw these names missing I had to.

MarcelineTheVampireQueen Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:09

I am always surprised that anyone thinks there is such a thing. A new poster, making there first post is just as valid(and quite possibly more sensible) than those who post a lot. I have never heard of some of the names who are supposed to be royalty!

I dont agree. I think its because of threads like this one that the same people are named over and over so are called royalty(though I am sure they dont see themselves as such) And then when a noob comes on and says something off or contradictory to the well known person, people tend to jump on the noob because they recognise the well known name. So the noob doesnt tend to post and lurks instead. So the board is just full of the same names.

Does that make sense? I have been drinking...

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:11

Isn't the term exclusively used as an insult anyway these days? As in:

"Oh you are all a load of bjullying bjitches who suck up to each other anyway you Mumsnet Royalty you"

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:37

Greensleeves. Elderly bananas were never once cool to become uncool. They are always only in a state of banana.

DreamySleepyNightySnoozySnooze Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:47

That's good enough for me Funnys! grin

We might all be cunts, but some are more cunty than others grin
Animal Farm, totes

And grin at 'Puss off' - I shall in a mo'

I am quite envious of posters who post so much, are so funny AND wise - I wish I could do ONE of those things. Might earn me scepter or summat

Pancakeflipper Tue 22-Jan-13 22:47:14

I just thinking yesterday ...we haven't had one of those coronation threads for a least a fortnight.
And hey presto...

<off to find the brasso to polish the coronets and buff up the pearls>

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:48:56


You did a dance that fixed my oven though smile thanks

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:49:25

And you was quoted on The Wright Stuff

Gawd, did I? Gosh, I am good as something - you are most welcome as I shall now go to bed content grin

TWS - now that was just embarrassing.

And I cannot remember what I was quoted to have said blush

OneHundredSecondsofSolitude Tue 22-Jan-13 22:52:16

All the ones I used to recognise seem to have gone away sad

Greensleeves Tue 22-Jan-13 22:52:44

I beg to differ Honeydragon. A banana in its prime is deeply cool. Have you never seen Bananas In Pyjamas?


<remembers when it was All Fields Around Here>

<wasn't cool then either> grin

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:53:15

I can't remember either.

I've been on the Wright Stuff twice in RL ... I like making Matthew agree with me. It's like a secret victory for Mnet kind.

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 22:53:41

Greensleeves I don't know how you have the audacity to comment after that last shenanigans of a thread.

OK people we need a King and Queen of MN. I vote for Beta as the King and Paggy as the Queen

<can't quite believe I called her Paggy, like she's my mate blush>

There seems to be a finch scratching at the window?

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 22:54:40

Bananas in pyjamas coming down the stairs are not cool, it's perverted. They are dirty fuckers.

Is that a finch in the 3rd floor? Wanting cake?? << pointedly ignores Greensleeves>>

Honey, you got MW to agree with you?? Kudos. I am v impressed.

Greensleeves Tue 22-Jan-13 22:55:55

<weeps> can I at least be the official Fool then? I can do fart jokes!

Cortana Tue 22-Jan-13 22:56:21

I have to admit, I picked up the MN guide to parenting in Waterstones, opened for a quick nose and saw Pagwatch being quoted, I was all
"Oooooooooooooh Look DP! I have seen the things she writes!"
I felt like I knew a Sleb blush

thegreylady Tue 22-Jan-13 22:57:35

I think MrsDeVere and lottiejankins have crowns and Maryz and mrz and everyone on the tamoxifen thread...

thegreylady Tue 22-Jan-13 22:58:05

Jenkins not jankins

thebody Tue 22-Jan-13 22:59:14

Oh dear god.. Could it actually get any sadder!

It's like going back to 1974 And school days.. Seriously!! Mumsnet royalty? op they will still let you into the gang you don't have to creep.

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:00:02

Yup. Including wasting 10 valuable Wright Stuff minutes discussing gay hamsters, I am good at tangents.

IamtheZombie Tue 22-Jan-13 23:00:03

There is no gang.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:00:05

I have never seen the term Mumsnet Royalty used in anger/sneering - have only read that it has been used as such in the past.

I have seen MN Royalty used in a jokey/banter type way.

Plus, one (incredibly lovely) MNer was recently surprised I had only been here a short while (just over a year) as she thought I was MN Royalty and I was quite proud (I have ishoos, I need to be loved/adored/admired) wink

In reality, she probably meant that she thought this because I was here shit-loads and therefore a stalwart/regular/lives in a hovel because MN-ing is much more fun than RL/housework.

However, I will take it to mean that I am Queen of MN <gavel>

TheCalvert Tue 22-Jan-13 23:00:16

I quite like these threads. Although, I really would lurve a thread with MN gold catchphrases.

Tupperware twat comes to mind, as does cuntbadger. I love the weird and wonderful stuff that goes on in random strangers minds grin

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 23:01:01

oh yes Maryz too.

The finch is a bit tufty Pacific. I think it is after the cake

Greeny ONLY if you apologise in public for upsetting soooo many people about cake

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:01:05

1974??? I wasn't born then.

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:01:14

Not everyone went to school in 1974.

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:01:53

<<high fives Coxy for spectacular point missing xposting >>

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:02:25

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 23:03:05

thebody there is no gang and if there is I am Innit, in a roundabout kinda way. I am in the whole of MN gang

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 23:04:38

I was 3 in 1974 and AFAIR playgroup was just a load of happy teeny children eating biscuits. There was no playgroup royalty

Viviennemary Tue 22-Jan-13 23:05:39

Some people might have Diplomatic Status. grin

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:05:52

You know it's this shit that gets randomson a thread accused of cliqueiness. In not her 10 minutes people will assume we are all together on FB and live together in a Mnet Kibbutz.

<<passes Funnys her hair dryer pack>>

Cheers for that mate ..... Oh fuck.

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:06:20


Wtf would a hair dryer pack be?

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:09:20

honey quick, over to FB, the gang are having an immense time over there....


<isn't part of any gang on FB> sad

happynewmind Tue 22-Jan-13 23:10:16

On another non parenting forum I used to post on you used to get a new subtitle each time you passed a certain number of posts or years.

I've been here 7 years I think so mine would probably say [no life]..

A lot of people including me name change on a regular basis.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:11:47

happy I used another forum way back, you had a post counter next to each of your posts.

That definitely created a hierarchy and some odious twats with it

HoneyDragon Tue 22-Jan-13 23:12:03

<<cuddles Coxy>> you can be in my gang luvvie.

BrianCoxandTheTempleofDOOM Tue 22-Jan-13 23:12:55

nawwwww, ta love [smooch]

waits to be called a bum licker by the haterz

LineRunner Tue 22-Jan-13 23:13:07

you are always there for me
petit petit
you are just like royalty
with your crown askew on friday night
your words are new but old and right
and oh
dooby fucking doo

TuftyFinch Tue 22-Jan-13 23:18:47

Coffee spoons.
Do I dare?

FunnysInLaJardin Tue 22-Jan-13 23:20:13

I love that whole PMing and FBing your mates lark. Some may do it, but I guess 90% of posters here are 'independent' so to squeak.

<apart from you Honey, hands back Hair Dryer Pack>

<it looks like something you get in flight, like a teeny tiny unfoldable hairdryer>

marriedinwhite Tue 22-Jan-13 23:23:15

Dunno but I like: Exotic Fruits, Zukiecat, Mrsdevere, Getorf, Frankwippery, Salmotrutta, Seeker, Juggling, Tethersend, Quintessential, Chaos, LaQueen, the Ruby's (many), Minty this and that [many], Kungfupanda - and they don't even usually agree with me. And what happened to Fabby Chic

marriedinwhite Tue 22-Jan-13 23:25:33

... and Linerunner (sick thread) and Bonsoir and HappyGardening and Colleger and Cointreauversial ...and all the names that will come to me as soon as I go to bed.

Monty27 Tue 22-Jan-13 23:28:04

I hate sucking up threads.

I have my favourites, they have no idea they are my favourites. I have no doubt that no-one even knows who I am.

It's called quiche-ing or something. I don't like exclusivity either, you know, o who are you? When someone joins in a thread and then everyone ignores thieir posts, etc.

MN is a bit shit for that imo.

Dons hat.


Fenton Tue 22-Jan-13 23:28:42

Missing the point I know bug I was 3 in 1974 too...

Fenton Tue 22-Jan-13 23:29:49

Yeah, bug I was 3, that's what I meant, not but.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 23:30:16

I think you're fab though Monty because

1) your name is a bit like Mintyy grin
2) you is local to me innit
3) we looked at the Moon and Jupiter and the scudding clouds together


FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 23:31:19

And oi Fenton I posted an hilarious clip off YouTube for you today ...

Monty27 Tue 22-Jan-13 23:32:58

Ahh Mintyyyyy blush

flowers smile

Fenton Tue 22-Jan-13 23:34:06

Which thread Mintyy love? My job is seriously cutting in to mning, sorry..

forgetmenots Tue 22-Jan-13 23:37:01

shout out to all the ladies on Stately Homes smile if I mention them all by name I will no doubt leave someone out by mistake. But crowns all round for them smile

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 23:37:32

Oh I can't remember now. My mumsnetting has seriously cut into my working time today blush, thank goodness I'm working from home. It was the one where you had difficulty getting your Ma out of the car at the supermarket.

Fenton Tue 22-Jan-13 23:44:40

Ha! Found it, - yes that was me and Mum !

happynewmind Tue 22-Jan-13 23:59:49

I just looked at my very old posts.

The only names I still recognise on those posts are


TuftyFinch Wed 23-Jan-13 00:05:18

Funny and Pacific what are your oblique references to fiches scratching at windows, wanting cake and being a bit Tufty about?
Am I being insulated?

IamtheZombie Wed 23-Jan-13 00:06:49

More double glazed, I think, Tufty.

TuftyFinch Wed 23-Jan-13 00:11:37

Zombie, but I don't understand. Perhaps I should sleep.
I guess.

gimmecakeandcandy Wed 23-Jan-13 00:11:41

These threads are so odd. There is no such thing as mumsnet royalty - although there may be some saddos who think they are and some butt lickers who want to tell us who they think is.


IamtheZombie Wed 23-Jan-13 00:13:42

Sorry, Tufty. Zombie put together windows + insulated and came up with double glazing. blush

LuluMai Wed 23-Jan-13 00:16:09

Royalty? On a postboard? A bit odd that.

Plus, this board is sooooo busy, I really don't take that much notice of the names or personalities involved as there are so many. It isn't really a very personal forum. There are a few recognisable names but that is mainly because the names are quite memorable/easy to remember, rather than knowing what they're like as individuals.

Utterlylostandneedtogo Wed 23-Jan-13 00:17:39

I'm queen of my own household

TuftyFinch Wed 23-Jan-13 00:27:47

Zombie grin
There's a joke in there somewhere. It would probably be draft though.

marriedinwhite Wed 23-Jan-13 00:34:58

daft grin

ouryve Wed 23-Jan-13 00:36:38

I started school in 1974 blush

IamtheZombie Wed 23-Jan-13 00:38:12

By 1974 school was a distant memory for Zombie.

< Zombie is old >

Valpollicella Wed 23-Jan-13 00:38:32

Im royalty? wtaf..grin

Reeeeeally? shock

if i am mistaken pleease forgive my folly in assuming op meant me...

HopAndSkip Wed 23-Jan-13 00:39:49

GimmeCake You're one I always spot though as you make me want chocolate cake all the time blush Damnit you're the reason I can't loose this baby chocolate fat!! wink LuluMai You have it spot on

IamtheZombie Wed 23-Jan-13 00:40:42

Val, you're Queen of the Smoking Shed.

DeepRedBetty Wed 23-Jan-13 00:46:37

People with Memorable Names do get namechecked more than the rest of us. And whatever DID happen to FabbyChick? She was (sometimes) a right cah, but (usually) entertaining.

Is she still here after a nc? There's a few more recent posters around with her blend of home truth and bonkersness <hard stare round room>

Meh. I don't think there is a MN royalty per se- I suppose I recognize more prolific posters because I usually hang about looking shifty on Active Convos, so they're more likely to come to mind. I don't post much, I haven't really found my niche. I tend to just answer questions when it's about something I know and share the occasional story. I don't think anyone really notices me.


My first 'serious' AIBU thread was on the Wright Stuff. Wrighty didn't like me, but a couple of the panel agreed with me. (I get the feeling he hadn't bothered to read my backstory and they had TBH. Shoddy journalism. Cock.)

I was most proud grin

Thumbwitch Wed 23-Jan-13 00:56:04

Ooo Valpol - haven't seen you around for a while (probably just been on the wrong boards!) How are you?

Why isn't honey on the list? I think she should be. Her exploits are the stuff of national tabloids! Twatted spiders etc. grin

<<ducks and runs away VERY FAST!!>>

gimmecakeandcandy Wed 23-Jan-13 06:53:46

Lol at hopandskip! grin

Really, anyone who thinks they are, and I bet there are a few, are deluded - everyone is the same. But I do spot people who have been around for a long time and don't name change, such as Ledkr Anyfucker MrsDevere - who all seem like very lovely ladies from their posts and - most importantly - would not think of themselves as superior or 'royalty'

Unlike a few others I could mention...

CheCazzo Wed 23-Jan-13 07:01:10

I don't much like these threads - they always seem like a chance to be all butt-sucky as if naming who you think is 'Royalty' will get you special dispensation with the nominees? Pfffft. Silly. grin
And - since I'm on a roll now - why IS it always the same names on these things? Hully? Who? All I know about Hully is she comes on sometimes, shouts at everyone or posts something cryptic and buggers off again. There are posters who are here every day and always being helpful and wise. No names - I'm sure they know who they are.
And ............exactly what gimme said - if someone thinks they're anything special round here then by default they are NOT. grin

HecateWhoopass Wed 23-Jan-13 07:03:57

If you mean sad bastard who's here all the time when she really should be working, then yeah. Thats me grin

everlong Wed 23-Jan-13 07:07:23

This again keep up OP it must be all of a week ago that we had this subject.

All a bit cringeworthy sorry.

haven't read the thread hope my name isn't all over it as if grin

Bluegrass Wed 23-Jan-13 07:20:13

These regular (and rather baffling) threads seem to show that for some people, no matter what environment you put them in, will try to establish a hierarchy. This seems to be true even when the hierarchy is mainly based on the amount of one's life one is prepared to piss away posting on a website forum!

The weird thing is I see this more on Mumsnet than any other forum I use, it's like an obsession here! I always thought it was the male of a species that was more into chest beating and pecking orders.

Bluegrass Wed 23-Jan-13 07:25:46

Actually I suppose that the difference here is that there is less of the chest beating but more of a display of keening deference from people who want to tug their forelocks! Psychologists would have a field day.

HoneyDragon Wed 23-Jan-13 07:28:37

You do no Hully isn't cryptic don't you? She's just quite mad. There's no secret code, she's usually just frothing wink

Thumb. Being a bit crap doesn't make you Royalty. Either thee the sneered at kind or the vaguely loved elderly Aunt kind. It just makes you crap grin


When did

a bit odd and how funny become so commonplace? It's another sneery little tweeism that's crept in.

MN Royalty exists only in the minds of the insecure.

Chandon Wed 23-Jan-13 07:39:28

MN royalty? but it is clear!

This is the lst copied from MNHQ:

Tempertantum123 is queenbee
blueberrytufty is runner up
plimsolsseasheelsbytheseaside is wannabe Queen
WalklikeaTrex thinks she is royalty but has been banned, haha
crocantedeville is countess of cool
Sadangrydad is the TonyBlair of MN

funnyinlagardin is number 1 on the waiting list to join, but one of the existing crew need to die/ get banned for life first.

Good luck OP! Should not be long now honey.

Zara1984 Wed 23-Jan-13 07:47:01

If there were MN royalty like the Royal Family I'd probably be one of the semi-naked Vegas lassies cosying up to Prince Harry... oo'er, that is a nice thought <drool>

We're not in high school OP, don't be so silly.

Zara1984 Wed 23-Jan-13 07:47:57

What NotADragon said...

I wonder how one becomes royalty?

Can I marry one of the "already royal" and become royal by default?

Chandon Wed 23-Jan-13 07:57:13

Yes we should have on line marriage options!

Then I could be a MN royalty wag

catgirl1976 Wed 23-Jan-13 07:58:40

Can I be a bridesmaid and the shoot to fame by way of everyone going on about my arse?

Nobody wants to be MN 'royalty'. It's used as an insult. Anybody think it's a compliment just hasn't 'got' that yet. None of the people named below deserve to be insulted. I suggest the OP cease and desist.

BIWI Wed 23-Jan-13 08:03:21

1974? Year before I sat my O-levels. I was far too busy with boys and under-age drinking to worry about what went on the playgrounnd wink

So......which mumsnetter would you marry? grin

CheCazzo Wed 23-Jan-13 08:06:37

1974 was a vintage year for boys and cider if I remember correctly. smile

HoneyDragon Wed 23-Jan-13 08:25:37

I'd marry soupy, save changing my surname. Then we'd adopt LRDDragon.

HoneyDragon Wed 23-Jan-13 08:27:50

Well save debating whether I should change my surname wink

It would have to be an uncivil a civil partnership, surely?

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Wed 23-Jan-13 09:14:38

This reminds me of suckbutting patronage in the middle ages.

I never notice usernames. I was in stitches about a thread yesterday and enviously wished I had the balls to be as much as a cunt as the op and was told off for sucking up confused

Yeah, whatever <yawns>

CheCazzo Wed 23-Jan-13 09:53:22

That's ridiculous Ariel. You should be able to say on a thread that you like what the OP is saying without that kind of nonsense. What really shouldn't happen is these kind of silly threads being all buttsucky towards people who are not even on the thread but presumably somewhere basking in the adoration. Too silly.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Wed 23-Jan-13 09:59:23

The OP was on the thread. And jolly funny she was being too grin I should add that it wasn't me individually who was told I was a suckbutt. It was all the posters who also found it funny. I'd seen the OP's name before of course, but that was no big deal.

ResolutelyCheeky Wed 23-Jan-13 10:09:35


everlong Wed 23-Jan-13 10:11:40

Hang on.

MN royalty is a bad thing? Nobody wants to be it? it's seen as derogatory?

I thought it was the popular folk confused

loopylou6 Wed 23-Jan-13 10:21:44

I had to come on this thread, just so I can do a big fat


CheerfulYank Wed 23-Jan-13 10:30:23

Don't care so long as I get to be American ambassador. grin

HiggsBoson Wed 23-Jan-13 10:31:30

Just fucking stop it right now!

Ringpieces are becoming sore from the constant tongueing hmm

apparently no one wants to be it.....but a lot of time is spent discussing it..... grin

FunnysInLaJardin Wed 23-Jan-13 11:17:49

Val aye twas you grin Only because we've both been knocking about for years.

MN Royalty can be a good and a bad thing, tis in the eye of the beholder.

And look these threads always have unexpected outcomes. The dragons are all going to form a little family and that's good news for everyone

BIWI Wed 23-Jan-13 11:41:03

Will we have baby dragons? [hopeful]

You can have the original BabyDragon. She is a nightmare.

Greensleeves Wed 23-Jan-13 11:49:37

How old is she now Soupy?

atthewelles Wed 23-Jan-13 11:56:58

Hate these threads. Mumsnet Royalty??? WTF?

Most people just pop in and out of the forum, have often namechanged several times and half the time I don't even remember the names of posters (even the ones who have been really mean and insulting to me sad)

Anyway, what time is cheerleading practice?

She'll be 7 in a fortnight!

And she's only a head shorter than her elder brother who's nearly 12.

Greensleeves Wed 23-Jan-13 12:01:16

NOOOOOO where did all that time go? 7!!!

I look at my lanky ds1 and can't believe he'll be 11 this year

I know.. It's scarey. There is certainly no Stealth Baby left!

I still have a good 3 inches on my PFB son grin Not for long though, given how fast he's growing.

EmpressOfThePuddle Wed 23-Jan-13 15:57:36

Not part of any gang on FB?

atthewelles Thu 24-Jan-13 10:53:07

What exactly do Mumsnet Royalty do?

Sweep in, say something bland and innocuous, accept a bouquet of flowers and bugger off for another year?

Hullygully Thu 24-Jan-13 11:08:46

<comes on, SHOUTS AT EVERYONE, posts something cryptic "a stone knight dormant" and buggers off again>

OneMoreChap Thu 24-Jan-13 11:17:36

Is there MN Royalty per se.

Lots of names I recognise in FWR, Relationships. Less in _Chat or AIBU so there may be some there I'd describe as well-known; but perhaps only by me...

Oddly enough I tend not to see many posts re BF or conception...

BIWI Thu 24-Jan-13 11:19:22

<hands Hully requisite bouque> thanks

Who ARE you hully?

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 11:29:02

oh atthe you are behind love, this thread fizzled out days ago. Imagine my surprise when there it was in my TIO right next to your thread about whatcha hate

Um... Isn't that bouquet a mix of poison ivy and nightshade?

Pagwatch Thu 24-Jan-13 11:38:10

<sweeps in>


<sweeps out>

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 11:45:55

Eggcellent your maj, really trully eggcellent

<creeps in --as im not royalty-->


<picks up a lone daisy off the floor, dropped by pag>

<creeps out>

Hullygully Thu 24-Jan-13 12:01:43

Perhaps you could be a Page, Tantrums? A Squire or a Knight Errant?

I thought for years it meant a mistaken knight rather than a wandering one.

BIWI Thu 24-Jan-13 12:21:46

<retrieves dropped 't' and creeps back out>

fromparistoberlin Thu 24-Jan-13 12:24:11


Hullygully Thu 24-Jan-13 12:33:47

there there

<pats sickly person>

YABU. Tis all bollocks smile

fromparistoberlin Thu 24-Jan-13 12:54:58


I have name changed but I used to be so nasty about MN royalty threads...I actually was disliked!!! happy days

northernlurker is my Queen, nay goddess

Always a kind word of wisdom for all

< waves to marriedinwhite - you are too kind thanks >

To me, MN Royalty are those who dispense sage advice or those who make me laugh.

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 13:33:08

Lol, fromparis feels sorry for me according to t'other thread. Really don't. I'm totes fine

Pagwatch Thu 24-Jan-13 13:38:42

The only people who really care about mn royalty are the ones who want to moan about it. No one else does tbh.

CaroleService Thu 24-Jan-13 13:49:42

I am a Mumsnet prole.

LaQueen Thu 24-Jan-13 14:01:42

Ooooh Hully can I be a Lion Rampant Reguardant, Sanguine please?

[knew that course in medieval heraldry would come in useful one day]

CheerfulYank Thu 24-Jan-13 14:42:15

If I were royalty of any sort I bet I could get DH to take the Godforsaken bins out. <bitter>

SoleSource Thu 24-Jan-13 14:44:58

Your Queen is ere.


Beg bitches

LtEveDallas Thu 24-Jan-13 15:03:36

I've always wanted to do this grin


LaQueen Thu 24-Jan-13 15:13:51

CY you nned to send him to me for some training... [slaps boot with riding crop]

LaQueen Thu 24-Jan-13 15:14:50

Actually, who the feck am I kidding...twas my DH who genuinely confused our tumble dryer with the dishwasher when showing round prospective buyers [hangs head in despair]

amillionyears Thu 24-Jan-13 15:21:19

I think MN royalty has had its day.

The site is now so big, that they only operate in a small corner of it.

Hullygully Thu 24-Jan-13 15:31:12

But it's the best corner, and we have thrones and chambermaids so we don't care.

amillionyears Thu 24-Jan-13 15:32:27


FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 15:46:52

oh Sole not that kind of queen, like Queen Latifa or summit. We are talking more Queen Kate of Middleton <who incidentally shares by birthday>

SoleSource Thu 24-Jan-13 15:55:27

grin grin grin FunnysInLaJardin

I do love a Royalty thread grin

Hullygully Thu 24-Jan-13 18:40:00

Me too, they are always a wheeze


<Everyone bows>

As you were

thebody Thu 24-Jan-13 18:52:37

Not born in 1974? Bugger!

ScrambledSmegs Thu 24-Jan-13 19:03:57

I suspect I am the antithesis of MN royalty, whatever that is. A MN serf?

<bows and scrapes>

FunnysInLaJardin Thu 24-Jan-13 22:51:21

They make me snurk, esp those who get snippy about them and a bit huffy that they aren't in a clique. And the joke is............there is no clique.

Unlike the cliquey club threads

IamtheZombie Thu 24-Jan-13 22:54:03

Royalty, shmoyalty. Load of codswallop.

In Zombie's ever so humble opinion.

< One can't get much more humble than a Zombie >

EmpressOfThePuddle Fri 25-Jan-13 07:46:59

A run-of-the-mill Zombie, maybe. But YOU are THE Zombie.

That's different.
