在社群媒體爆炸的時代,誰才是真正網紅?英國哈利王子與妻子梅根,在週二(4月2日)正式開通兩人的Instagram官方帳號,首篇貼文在一小時內累積23.7萬個讚,追蹤人數在短短6小時內更飆破一百萬關卡,打破金氏世界紀錄,成為史上最紅人。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – When it comes to social media, who do you think is the most popular online celebrity? Following an official Instagram account launch on April 2, record-breaking Sussex Duke and Duchess Harry and Meghan gained 237,000 likes for their first post. They even accumulated 1 million followers on Instagram within only 6 hours to be the fastest, according to the Guinness World Records.

在告別與兄嫂威廉與凱特的共用帳戶後,兩人近日開通的Instagram官方帳號@sussexroyal截至今天已擁有410萬粉絲,許多好萊塢巨星都在第一時間追蹤,如貝克漢、花邊教主布蕾克萊芙莉和葛妮絲派特蘿等人。| The Instagram launch represented the couple’s split of households and social media accounts from William and Kate, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

但在這重要的時刻,大家更關注的應該是梅根肚子裡的重大消息,究竟王室寶寶是男是女,又會取什麼名字,早已引起許多耐不住性子的網友開始熱烈討論。

Yet another thing of paramount importance in the audience’s eyes is Meghan’s little baby about to add to the royal family. Hours after the release of their joint account, many followers and netizens have begun to speculate about the topic — Is Meghan having a girl or boy? What are the possible names?

梅根在嫁入王室後幾乎關閉所有個人社交媒體帳號,以維護資訊安全與王室權威,但由於她預計在四月生產,外界也認為最快可將在該月份看見哈利與梅根上傳的寶寶照片。

Former actress Meghan closed most of her personal accounts on social media prior to her marriage to Harry to secure information and maintain the royal prestige. However, the public hopes that the duo will break news on the Instagram account when their little one arrives this month.

先前92歲的英國女王才自己當起小編,發佈了自己的Instagram貼文,如今哈利與梅根即時跟上,po出一系列生活紀錄。

Subsequent to a first-ever Instagram post made by 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth in March, Harry and Meghan posted a series of photos very recently to introduce their lives to a billion of contemporary “Instagramers”.

兩人的官方帳號使用藍底白字頭像,首po為10 張組圖,包括兩人出訪時的溫馨時刻、哈利從軍時的模樣、與兩人前陣子在斐濟陽台上對人民致意的牽手背影合照。

The profile of the account is a blue monogram with entwined white initials H and M representing the royal duo, and the first post — a photo gallery of 10 — featured their trips to Australia and Fiji, historical moments of Prince Harry served his military career, a never-before-seen snap of them holding hands in an address to Fijian citizens on a balcony, and more.
