It is awful that in these dark times these two show a picture of themselves pretending to care about culture I mean we know Mary doesn't care about it. The tv is in the corner and the whole picture is angled that does not look like a family tv room at all where their big crowd can gather around. I think it is funny that they use the word couch and not sofa I remember hearing from my granny that sofa is the proper word and couch is the lower class word. I know that is silly and it doesn't matter but funny for a prince.

Didn't he have a bad back a couple of years ago? Had an op?
Also some wrist / arm damage earlier this year?
I expect he was being careful.

In german "Couch" is far preferred to "Sofa". How is that in Danish?
Anyway, I didn't find it awful that they show themselves to enjoy culture during these times, in fact I think it would be a nice reminder of what is available online and on tv as an alternative to your normal routines.
However, I simply had to chuckle because imagining Fred enjoying literature, drama and theatre is like him stating that he only drinks beer from crystal glasses - it is something that I would buy from Charles, but honestly not really from any of the other cps or younger kings. (with the exception of Felipe, who would do that to please his wife)

In Danish, we only have one word for it. Sofa. So there isnít really much of a choice there Smiley

I grew up in the UK, and the word sofa or "settee" is used interchangeably.  I think settee is perhaps not a southern or London word, but I dont know for sure.
To me "couch" is the American term for it, and I rarely hear it used in the uk. I'm not sure what the Australian word is for it but perhaps the word couch is used and Fred has picked it up from Mary or he learned that word when learning English? I've noticed in a lot of English language programmes that American words are used instead of English, such as garbage/trash instead of rubbish.

I knew a few Australians from my time living in Asia and they nearly always used couch, never 'settee' or sofa. One or two would use the word lounge as in "Sit on the lounge" which is different.

Also, in the UK...sofa is "posher" than settee. I don't care...we say settee here!

On that subject...I work at a (very) posh school where the word toilet is banned. It has to be 'loo' which is apparently very upper class. (I never knew !)

Its o/t for this board but if you would like to find out about the origin of the term loo, it was generated by someone to do with Shugborough Hall called Lucy or Lucillle. If you have a period of free time google it, it's very interesting. My short term memory means I've forgotten the actual facts but I remember that it was interesting!

Honestly. He has been so invisible for the last year or so every time this thread pops up I am like "right. Frodo is there as well". It is not even fun dishing on them.

When I was younger, it was definitely always lounge. As in weíll sit on the lounge in the lounge room. These days couch is being used more and more, but I suspect thatís got to do with more American pop culture seeping in. I donít really hear sofa used much in Australia, but we definitely know the word.
