Queen Elizabeth II apparently only picks up her phone for two people.
Not only does the queen have a limited list of people she'll pick up the phone for, she also has a phone packed with "anti-hacker encryption," royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti revealed during a recent episode of the "Royally Us" podcast.

"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 [a] Samsung packed with anti-hacker encryption by MI6 so nobody can hack into her phone," Sacerdoti said.
"But the two people she phones the most is said to be her daughter Princess Anne and her racing manager John Warren. So this is apparently who can get through to the Queen from anywhere in the world if he calls, she answers," he said.

Warren is the son-in-law of Queen Elizabeth's friend, the late Earl of Carnarvon, according to Express.
Elizabeth is Britain’s longest-living and longest-reigning monarch. She is due to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee — marking 70 years on the throne — next year.

Concerns about the monarch’s health were raised last month, when she spent a night in a London hospital after being admitted for medical tests. In late October, palace officials said the monarch had been told by doctors to rest for two weeks and only take on light duties.
Most of her time on the telephone is spent talking with her daughter and Warren.

The queen recently returned to public duties, holding an in-person audience at Windsor Castle with the outgoing head of Britain’s armed forces.

Most popular phone of the last 22 years revealed – and it’s NOT an iPhone
THE MOST popular phone since the millennium has been revealed and many will be shocked to find out it's NOT an iPhone.
Despite the Apple handset's massive success since 2007, not one of the models have been able to topple an earlier giant.2iPhone 6 is the second most in-demand phone since 2000Credit: Getty
In fact, the majority of the top five were all released in the noughties.
2014's iPhone 6/6+ saw 222.40million handsets sold, making it Apple's most successful smartphone.
But that only puts it at number two.
The number one has been revealed as old school favourite, the Nokia 1100.
The device, which boasted Snake and a built-in flashlight, was sold a staggering 250million times between 2003 and 2009.2The Nokia 1100 is the world's best selling phone handsetCredit: Handout
According to data put together by Mobiles.co.uk, another Nokia staple also ranks high at third place.
The iconic Nokia 3310 was used by 136million since 2004.
Meanwhile, the Motorola Razr V3 grabbed the hearts of 130million from 2000.
Apple rounds off the top five with 2013's iPhone 5C/5S, which shifted 76.6million units.
Other iPhone models and Samsung Galaxy devices also made the top ten.
Perhaps surprisingly, there was no place among the most successful selling handsets for Blackberry.Most read in TechINCOMING!

Experts say that earlier phones have the advantage of selling for a longer period of time, unlike today when tech giants churn out new models quite frequently.
"Anyone who grew up in the nineties and noughties will likely have fond memories of early Nokia handsets, so it’s interesting to see these proven as the most popular handsets of the past 20 years," said Kyle Wilson, mobile expert at Mobiles.co.uk.
"While Samsung and Apple are now names that are synonymous with the smartphone market, there’s no denying that Nokia’s early handsets will remain iconic among certain generations.
"Whilst there is no doubt the likes of the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy are the top of wish lists today; the popularity of these Nokia handsets cannot be understated.
"With almost one in five mobile phone owners having an 1100 or 3310 in the respective years they were released, this is an impressive feat matched by no one in 2021."Nokia relaunches 2720 Flip with two screens and battery that lasts 27 days
