    Have you ever dreamed of being the queen or king of an imaginary realm while growing up? Sure you have, especially those of you growing up in Great Britain, where monarchy is a political system upon which the region was founded.

    Well, starting today, you might get an inch closer to seeing your dream become reality, as you can start texting on your mobile device like Her Majesty the Queen of the Commonwealth. The very popular Swiftkey Android app just got a nifty little update, adding to the languages supported the “English, Queen’s version”.

    The new feature has been added to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, which has taken place over the past weekend celebrating the 60th anniversary of the accession of Her Royal Majesty to the throne.

    According to the app’s developers, the newly created language will be available on Swiftkey for a limited time only. However, we don’t know when the feature will be disappearing from one of Android’s best-selling apps in Google Play, so you should enjoy it while you can.

    Based on an artificial intelligence software and the analysis of Queen Elizabeth II’s speeches ever since 1952, when she became the UK’s monarch, the new Swiftkey function will suggest distinctive words and phrases frequently used by Her Royal Majesty.

    Surprisingly enough, you shouldn’t expect for the app to suggest very pretentious or formal words and expressions, but rather words revealing a “generally optimistic frame of mind”. “Confident”, “delighted”, “glad” and “please” are some of the words most used by The Queen, while if you start writing “My” the auto-suggest feature of SwiftKey will most likely complete the phrase with “Government will”.

    The Swiftkey X Android app is available for purchase on Google Play for just $2.99. You can also try out the app for free for one month, while if you already have it installed on your device and want to start “royally texting”, you’ll need to simply refresh your language options.
