Oprah's interview with Meghan and Harry had a unique connection to The Brady Bunch

The chairs that stole the show came from a company owned by Peter Brady himself, Christopher Knight.

The two-hour interview between Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry captured the attention of the world. While Markle's allegations against the royal family were the topic of most headlines, another less serious story emerged in the days after. The wicker chairs used for the interview became objects of fascination and quickly sold out online. While clothing and jewelry worn by celebrities are usually the things people gravitate towards, viewers couldn't help but appreciate the tasteful deck furniture.

And when the owner of the company that sold the chairs was discovered, the chairs really became their own story.

That’s because the celebrated seats come from furniture brand Christopher Knight Home. Yes, that Christopher Knight, the man who played Peter Brady as a kid grew up to create multiple companies, including a home décor business.

After seeing all the hubbub about the chairs, let alone the contents of the interview, Knight wrote on Facebook, "I am honored to have the patio chairs from my collection become the seat of the most fascinating famous sit down in recent history. It would appear Meghan and Prince Harry got 'Knighted' in a way never anticipated."

A spokesperson for Christopher Knight Home told CNN, "It seems everything the Royals say, do, or touch draws interest. Though we are grateful for the notoriety — the social media response has been tremendous — we remain surprised at the occurrence."

The interview drew more than 17 million viewers in the U.S. alone. Talk about free advertising.

I completely agree. Who cares about this? I don't think politics should be brought into the MeTv stories at all.

Many kudos to Christopher Knight for having the courage to leave acting and to embark on another endeavor, and many kudos to Sherwood Schwartz for having the courage to let the kids run and play when they were not required for filming. He let them be normal.

And this is exactly what Harry and Meghan were doing, decamping for California. They just wanted Archie to have a normal life. Life in the Palace came with strings attached. They were puppets on strings operated by the Palace guards. They were being strangled by the strings so they opted for a normal life.

And here I clicked on this because I thought Harry and Meghan were going to announce they were going to be in a remake of Mork and Mindy. The only thing I was waiting to hear about in the interview and didn't was if Meghan has Harry dress up in his WWII German Officer uniform like Brad Renfro did to Ian McKellen in the movie Apt Pupil. Strange no one talks about that anymore?

As in all things the complaintant s are considered whiners and the Firm is astounded, snobs who are oblivious to all things.

This notion of a royal family does not sit well with me. Life on the dole. They are the fattest bloodsuckers suctioned to the welfare state. "Expletive" the royals, green and pleasant land.

Interesting story, Christopher Knight was my favorite Brady. He was cute. He is not bad looking now.

The times I watched a full Oprah Show is somewhere between 0 and 1. The Wicker Chairs I would take though .

If your looking for the proper punctuation I just put it like I see it. I already got docked today for a word I misspelled. I am teetering on the edge of a English Cliff .

Actually it was music for the Theme to Cops (or some version of recorded police actions). Usually busting into someone's home in the middle of the night for an arrest. I never knew where the music came from, but it was catching.

Bad, Boys, Bad, Boys, what'cha gonna do when they come for you!!

That's us!! At least on line! LOL!!
