哈里王子订婚 “准王妃”圈粉
Royal Family keeps up

来源:21英语网    2017-12-04



        Ever since UK’s Prince Harry and US actress Meghan Markle started dating in July 2016, they’ve been the focal point of the world. And now, the news of their engagement on Nov 28 is everywhere.        自从英国哈里王子和美国女演员梅根·马克尔去年7月开始约会以来,两人就成为了全世界关注的焦点。而如今,11月28日传来两人订婚的消息更是引起了轰动。
        Markle’s identity as non-royalty and as a mixed-raced woman – her father is a white man and her mother an African-American woman – has of course been one of the reasons why the couple has been attracting the world’s attention. But let’s admit it, the UK Royal Family has just never stopped being popular.        马克尔出身平民,是一名混血儿 —— 父亲是白人,母亲是非裔美国人。女方这样的身份是这对情侣受到世界关注的一大原因。但我们也不得不承认,英国王室向来都如此受欢迎。
        One of the reasons is that the Royal Family knows how to move with the times. Once upon a time, kings, queens, princes and princesses were mysterious. Today, while they still have some of the old mystery, the royals are true celebrities, just like famous sports and pop stars. Indeed, they are the upper class of celebrities. There are hundreds of Hollywood actors, but there is only one Queen of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth II, or Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.        原因之一在于英国王室懂得如何顺应时代潮流。曾几何时,国王、王后、王子、公主都十分神秘。如今的王室仍保留了一些古老的神秘感,但王室成员们就像著名的体育明星和流行歌手一样,是货真价实的名人。毫无疑问,他们是名人圈中的上流阶层。好莱坞大腕可以有几百个,但英国女王伊丽莎白二世,或者剑桥公爵夫人凯特·米德尔顿却只有一人。
        Because they’re seen so much – in magazines, on TV, on the internet – the royals must now be careful. It’s not enough to be famous; one must “deserve” this fame. That’s why the new, younger generation of royals are so important to the Royal Family’s chances of surviving. An attractive and highly likeable young woman, Middleton’s support of so many good causes has given the Royal Family something that it needed.        由于他们超高的曝光度 —— 杂志上、电视上、互联网上 —— 如今的王室成员们必须保持小心谨慎。光有名气还不够,他们还必须“担得起”这份名望。这也是王室新的年轻一代对王室得以存续如此重要的原因。王室需要凯特王妃这样一位充满魅力又受到众人喜爱的女性支持众多慈善事业。
        And now with Markle about to become a new member, the family is thrilled. Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, joked that “America’s loss is our gain”, according to BBC News.        而如今马克尔即将成为王室的新成员,整个王室家族都雀跃不已。据BBC新闻报道,康沃尔公爵夫人卡米拉还打趣道“美国的损失就是我们的收获”。
