There are very few people in the world who have direct access to the Queen – for obvious security reasons – but it turns out Her Majesty has two people she regularly speaks to on the phone
It goes without saying that the Queen is no ordinary person, so you can not just pick up the phone to be able to speak to her – not even some of her closest family.
There are strict rules in place for anyone who wishes to contact the Queen, as it could create a huge security threat if anyone were able to reach the monarch.
Luckily technology has moved on a lot over the last few years, which means Her Majesty is now able to have a personal mobile phone which is protected against hackers – but she only uses it to contact two people.
MyLondon reports that the Queen has two people she regularly speaks to on her mobile phone, but they’re not necessarily the people you might expect.
Royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti said the two people who have access to the royal via her mobile are her daughter Princess Anne and her racing manager, John Warren.
Speaking to Royally US, Sacerdoti explained: “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.
“But the two people she phones the most are said to be her daughter Princess Anne and her racing manager John Warren.”
The Queen is said to be very close friends with Warren, who is married to the Earl of Carnarvon’s sister, Lady Carolyn Warren, and owns and runs the stud at Highclere Castle – the home that famously doubles as Downton Abbey.
The pair have regularly been seen chatting and laughing at events and Warren recently praised his friend for being inducted into the QIPCO British Champions Series Hall of Fame for her dedication to horse breeding.
He said: “I suspect that the Queen will have a lot of inner pride in being invited into the Hall of Fame. The Queen’s contribution to racing and breeding derives from a lifelong commitment. Her love of horses and their welfare comes with a deep understanding of what is required to breed, rear, train and ride a thoroughbred.
“Her Majesty’s fascination is unwavering and her pleasure derives from all of her horses – always accepting the outcome of their ability so gracefully.”
