And it makes sense that when planning their schedule, making bookings for them and talking about their movements, they can’t exactly just use their real names. Nor could their personal details be saved on mobile phones or computers for fear of a leak.
And now according to the Daily Star, Harry and Meghan are referred to by names inspired by their royal title, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – so DS.
A royal source told the publication that it is “far too risky” to refer to their real names, and so instead claims that Harry and Megs are known as ‘David Stevens’ and ‘Davina Scott’ by their bodyguards.
“If anyone got hold of a phone belonging to a royal aide or security team member, they won’t find Harry Windsor and Meghan’s names in it,” added the source.
According to The Sun, the names were accidentally revealed during a recent event attended by Prince Harry when the royal got an unexpected call put through to him.
But Harry and Meghan aren’t the only ones who use code names, we’re sure the whole royal family do, but it’s also been revealed that Prince William and Kate Middleton also reportedly go by the pseudonyms Danny Collins and Daphne Clark.
But don’t bother trying to look up these names and track them all down, as “they are changed regularly for obvious reasons,” adds the source.
