The Queen reportedly has two contacts that can always “get through” to her, no matter where she is and one of her most-called people might come as a surprise to royal fans.
- Her Majesty is said to call two people the most with her multiple phones, but one of these contacts isn’t a member of the Royal Family.
- A royal commentator has claimed that when “he calls, she answers” the phone, from anywhere in the world.
- This royal news comes as Duchess Camilla ‘beacon in the dark’ for thousands as fans praise her for highlighting a critical issue.
The Queen is said to have two people she calls the most and who she “always” answers the phone to, no matter where in the world she is. Throughout the pandemic, Her Majesty has been delighting fans with her use of technology, with the royals carrying out over half their engagements via video call last year. This includes many conducted by the Queen, with sweet clips often posted on the Royal Family’s official social media pages.
After the Queen sprained her back in recent weeks, she has been once again taken to video call for “light” duties at Windsor Castle. Though one thing most royal fans won’t have ever seen is the monarch using her cell phone. She’s understood to have one encrypted with anti-spyware to prevent anyone hacking into it, whilst the Queen's grandchildren, Prince William and Prince Harry, supposedly taught her how to text. And it seems that there are certain contacts who the Queen keeps in touch with the most.
As reported by Express.co.uk, a royal expert has revealed just who the Queen contacts most on her multiple phones and one might come as a surprise to many royal fans. Opening up to Royally US presenter Christina Garibaldi, royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdotti shared that the Queen’s phone is also reportedly “packed” with anti-spyware to protect her calls from unwanted ears.
He claimed, “Apparently the Queen has two people who she speaks to the most on her phones and she also apparently has a mobile phone which is said to be Samsung packed with anti-hacker encryption by MI6 so nobody can hack into her phone.”
And when it comes to which two people in her inner circle can always get through to Her Majesty, whilst many might expect several of the Queen’s children to make the list, only one of them actually does. The monarch’s only daughter Princess Anne was the royal who worked the hardest in 2020 and it seems she’s one of those Her Majesty speaks to most regularly.
As a senior royal who’s 17th in the royal line of succession and recently snagged a brand new royal role, it is understandable that the Princess Royal would be high up on her royal mother’s most-called list. Though the other person who can reportedly always reach the Queen wherever she may be is not Princess Anne’s siblings or any of the Queen’s grandchildren.
"[T]he two people she phones the most is said to be her daughter Princess Anne and her racing manager John Warren,” the royal commentator continued. “He is the son-in-law of the Queen’s friend, the late Earl of Carnarvon and his home was Highclere castle in Berkshire which viewers of TV may know better as Downton Abbey.”
Jonathan added, “So this is apparently who can get through to the Queen from anywhere in the world, if he calls, she answers.”
The Queen is known for her love of horses and reports have previously suggested that she likes being kept up-to-date on her race horses’ progress. With John Warren overseeing all of Her Majesty’s racing and breeding interests, it's perhaps no wonder that the monarch likes to be contactable by him at all times!
