Royal family: The Queen has a secret code name that she uses when on public occasions | Royal | News


The police protection officers do not address her as Her Majesty, neither do royal staff. When the monarch is out on public engagements she is known as “S” for her safety. A royal aide said: “She’s written down as S.”

The royal aide said “S, stands for Sharon”.

Royal historian Hugo Vickers affirmed the news when he said: “Yes, it is highly likely.”

He added: “The purpose of any sobriquet is that it should be anonymous and memorable.

“If it can also be a bit mischievous and therefore all the more memorable, then that makes sense.

“Although S might simply stand for Sovereign of course.”

Barack Obama also has a secret name, being “Renegade”.

Donald Trump has the secret name, “Mogul”.

The Queen, now 91, is the longest-reigning British monarch and since ascending the throne aged 25 on February 6, 1952, has seen many Prime Ministers come and go.

Even if the Queen is not allowed to share her political views and never speaks about her relationships with the leaders, there have been several interesting reports over the years.

The Royal Family’s official website says the monarch always has a “special relationship” with whoever is leading her Government, but she is believed to have had a favourite.

Winston Churchill was the first Prime Minister the Queen worked with after her father died, and also the one she reportedly liked the most.

They were said to be very close, and Sir Winston was dubbed a “formidable presence for the young monarch”, who was just 27 at the time.

“But it was most overtly displayed by Churchill.

“He made no pretence at it, there were tears in his eyes when he welcomed her.”

According to the Daily Mirror, the Queen sent Sir Winston a handwritten letter after he retired in 1955, saying how much she missed him.

he wrote that no other Prime Minister would “ever for me be able to hold the place of my first Prime Minister, to whom both my husband and I owe so much and for whose wise guidance during the early years of my reign I shall always be so profoundly grateful”.

Moreover, after his death in 1965, Her Majesty broke royal protocol by arriving at his funeral before his family did.
