A royal expert has claimed to reveal the two people that Queen Elizabeth II speaks to the most on her heavily-encrypted mobile phone.
Over the last year, the monarch has adopted online video platform Zoom as a medium for communicating messages, battling through reported health scares and the limitations of the coronavirus pandemic.
Most recently, a pre-recorded video message was broadcast to attendees at the COP26 Global Climate Summit in Glasgow.
And now, delving into the Royal Family’s technological habits, royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti claimed to hold the knowledge of who the Queen speaks to the most on her phone.
Tackling the topic on the Royally Us podcast, host Christina Garibaldi said: “We also have some information about who the Queen speaks to the most, right? And I think it’s her daughter Princess Anne?"
“Yeah, apparently the Queen has two people who she speaks to the most on her phones,” Jonathan replied.
“And she also apparently has a mobile phone, which is said to be a Samsung which is packed with anti-hacker encryption by MI6 so that nobody can hack into her phone.
“The two people she phones the most are said to be her daughter Princess Anne, and her racing manager John Warren. He’s the son-in-law of the Queen’s friend, the late Earl of Carnarvon.
“So this is apparently who can get through to the Queen from anywhere in the world. If he calls, she answers.”
There is a well-established link between the royal institution and horse racing. The Queen frequently attends the Epsom Derby, although she did not attend this year’s event – for only the 2nd time in 70 – years after Covid-enforced restrictions were introduced.

But despite these setbacks to her typical public engagements, Jonathan acknowledged that the Queen had adapted well to the the tricky circumstances, saying: “We saw her during lockdown with all the Zoom calls and video calls.
“And now, since her health has not been quite as good as it’s been in the past, she’s been doing more that way… It’s extraordinary to think how readily and easily she picks up these new technologies.”
And, with the festive season approaching, the Queen has reportedly told family members that she is feeling "far better" and is looking forward to hosting Christmas, after she was forced to cancel an appearance at the Remembrance Sunday commemorations.
