The undisputed Queen of Twitter just had a run-in with real-life royalty.

Although the British royal family tends to shy away from social media, Princess Beatrice couldn’t help but reply when Chrissy Teigen tweeted a musing about her name.

“‘Bea’ is such an adorable name,” the model and mom of two, 33, wrote on Thursday. “Someone name their kid bea please. I am not ready for another daughter and John says no more dogs. I will be their god parent.”

The Queen’s granddaughter, 30, made a rare return to Twitter – aside from a Feb. 20 post to promote her mother’s charity StreetChild, her last post was back in July – to respond, “I would adore to be your god daughter.”

Teigen was clearly shocked by her rub with royalty. Her astonished reply was simply, “oh my god oh my god oh my god.”

Although it’s long past Beatrice’s baptism, it is British tradition to have multiple godfathers and godmothers. Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s third child, Prince Louis, has six godparents. And the number is up to the family’s choosing: Prince George has seven godparents, while Prince Charlotte has five.

Teigen is clearly a big fan of the royal family, even going as far as to dress up as Queen Elizabeth this past Halloween – complete with a the monarch’s signature wide-brimmed hat, gloves and handbag. She also had husband John Legend play the part of Prince Philip.

While most senior members of the royal family stay away from having personal social media accounts – Meghan Markle even deleted hers before marrying Prince Harry – Beatrice and her family all keep their own pages. Her younger sister, Princess Eugenie, is active on Instagram, as are her mother, Sarah Ferguson, and father, Prince Andrew.

And while Beatrice’s Twitter page is public and verified, her secret Instagram was exposed when Karlie Kloss shared a screenshot of when she shared her engagement news with her pal. The model tagged Princess Beatrice’s private account — @beayork. (Her official title is Princess Beatrice of York.) Followers include Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy and supermodel Cara Delevigne, who both attended Eugenie’s October wedding. The 1,044 people she follows is set to private.
