Queen Elizabeth II will only pick up the phone for two callers within the royal circle, a royal commentator has suggested.

Royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti, who also writes for the Spectator, claimed during an interview on the "Royally Us" podcast that the 95-year-old British monarch has a mobile phone packed with "anti-hacker encryption" and that only two people have instant access to the Queen through this special phone.

"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," Sacerdoti said on the podcast.

"But the two people she phones the most is said to be her daughter Princess Anne and her racing manager John Warren," he continued. "So this is apparently who can get through to the Queen from anywhere in the world. Uh, if he calls, she answers."

Warren is the son-in-law of a longtime family friend, the late Earl of Carnarvon, Marie Claire noted.

The Queen is known for her love of horse racing and is believed to have made millions as a longtime racehorse owner. Her racing manager is in charge of Her Majesty's horses and their training, along with the breeding and acquisition of bloodlines for those horses, according to the outlet.

Meanwhile, Sacerdoti also recently weighed in on the speculations that the Queen has a secret Facebook account. The royal expert suggested that it's not impossible for the monarch to have one as she "seems completely able to pick" up new technology.

"We saw her during lockdown with all the Zoom calls and the video calls. And now, since her health’s been not quite as good as it was in the past, she’s been doing more [appearances] that way," Sacerdoti told Us Weekly, adding, "It’s extraordinary to think how readily and easily she picks up these new technologies."

The Queen previously made headlines last year after making her first public video call alongside Princess Anne. She and her 71-year-old daughter participated in a Webex call with care workers from the Carers Trust to mark Carers Week 2020.

The monarch also spoke with Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and her great-grandchildren — who live in California — via video conference in April last year.

Since the royal family has not confirmed the reports about the Queen's alleged social media account, Sacerdoti can only speculate about her online presence.

"I mean, we don’t know the Queen’s pseudonym here and we also don’t know how many friends she has," he continued. "She hasn’t yet accepted my request, but we also know that in that book about Meghan and Harry [written by Omid Scobie] that Harry had a secret Instagram account with a username ‘SpikeyMau5,’ which was deleted shortly afterward, I believe."

Sacerdoti added that Markle apparently began following that Instagram account around the time she started dating Prince Harry.

Prince Harry's Instagram handle combined his Facebook alias "Spike Wells," a nickname that Scotland Yard officers bestowed upon him, with a tribute to his love of the DJ Deadmau5, according to royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand's Sussex biography "Finding Freedom."
