Commonwealth Games bring Royal photo-bombing to Twitter
Who is that in that background of those photos? Oh, no big deal, it's just the queen of England, the duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Prince William.
Typically, the British Royal Family is seen as polite and conventional with a mind-your-manners attitude. So, obviously Royal selfies would be out of the question. But what about photo-bombs?
Apparently, several members of the Royal family don't have qualms about either accidentally or purposely inserting themselves into the backgrounds of photos. As the Commonwealth Games ramp up in Glasgow, Scotland, more and more Royal photo-bombs are showing up across Twitter.
The first photo-bomb to go viral was an image of the queen of England standing behind a selfie taken by two of Australia's women hockey team players last week (see above). Then, other photos with the duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Prince William also surfaced on the social network (see below, respectively).
After Twitter created a special feature for people to follow the World Cup in Brazil earlier this month, the social network has now done the same for the Commonwealth Games. The company has made a special hashtag for the games, #Glasgow2014, and developed ways for users to easily access real-time updates from athletes, teams, and people it calls "influencers."
