في تبادل تغريداتٍ فريدٍ من نوعه حصل يوم أمس الخميس، لم تتوقّع "عميدة" تويتر الممثلة العالمية "كريسي تيغن" أن تحصُلَ على ردٍّ ملكي من قِبل الأميرة بياتريس.

كعادتها، تُغرّد كريسي تيغن بكُلّ شيءٍ يخطر على بالها، وفي يوم أمس كتبت عبر حسابها في تويتر بأنّها تُحب الاسم "بي"، عِلمًا بأنّ لقب الأميرة بياتريس هو Bea، فقالت: "بي اسمٌ رائع، أرجو من أحدٍ منكم أن يُسمّي ابنته بي، فأنا لستُ مُستعدّةً لابنةٍ أخرى، وجون يرفض فكرة تبنّي كلبٍ جديد، وأنا سأكون والدتها بالمعمودية".

وما إن كتبت كريسي هذه الكلمات، حتّى بدأ المُتابعات بنشر صورِ بناتهن اللواتي يحملن الاسم "بي"، بل ووعدها آخرون بأنهم سيُسمّون ابنتهم المُقبلة "بي"، ليأتّي الرّد المُفاجئ من الأميرة البريطانية "بياتريس" قائلةً: "سأعشق أن أكون ابنتك بالمعمودية".

صُدمت تيغن من رد الأميرة غير المُتوقّع، وما كان منها إلّا أن تكتُبَ هذه الكلمات ردًّا عليها "يا إلهي.. يا إلهي.. يا إلهي" من شدّة الصّدمة، بل وصُدم مُتابعوها معها، فرد الأميرة أدخلهم في دهشةٍ إيجابية، إذ قال أحدهم: "انظروا من عاد إلى تويتر"، وقال آخر: "هل تستطيع ذكر ثنائي أكثر أيقونية من هذا"، وعلّق ثالث: "عميدة تويتر وسموّها الملكي الأميرة بياتريس.. هذا أفضل تفاعل رأيته على تويتر.. سلّمي لي على كيت".
