Every time Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave Kensington Palace, they need to be surrounded by security at all times, so it should come as no surprise that their bodyguards made protecting them a little bit easier by coming up with secret security code names for the pair.
According to The Sun, Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, allegedly go by “DS,” which is short for their royal titles, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. And to make the code name even more secretive, their security sometimes calls Harry “David Stevens” and Meghan “Davina Scott.” How interesting!
Apparently, Harry and Meghan can’t be called by their birth names in public because it’s “far too risky.” An insider recently told the Daily Star, “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.”
Kate Middleton and Prince William reportedly have secret security code names, too, and they’re also influenced by their royal titles. As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the source claimed the royal pair answer to the names “Danny Collins” and “Daphne Clark.”
An insider recently told Closer Weekly that Kate and William have “upped their security team” ever since ISIS supporter Husnain Rashid plead guilty to planning an attack on Prince George‘s school this past May.
“The most important thing Kate and William can do is keep the threats away from the child’s awareness… [and] not share their worries with the child,” psychologist Julie Armstrong explained, adding that the Cambridges’ specially assigned security guards have now become “like part of the family.”
