Writing in Code + BONUS- DIY Invisible Ink – Royals Lessons!

Ciao Royals! Today’s post is about something every Royal needs to know- How to write in code!

Writing in code isn’t just for the spies anymore. Royals can use code to converse with close friends, keep other royals out of their business, even Marie Antoinette used a cypher to communicate with Axel von Fersen, her lover.

The most simple (but easily broken) code is a simple number-match code. You know, A=1, B=2, and so on.

However, you can draft your own code fairly easily. All you need to do is match a number, symbol, or even another letter to each letter of the alphabet.

You could do a backwards code, A=Z, B=Y, and so on. You could do a backwards number code, A=26, B=25, and so on. You could even do symbols.

Be very sure not to leave your main cypher anywhere. You don’t want any enemies cracking your code!

Some example Cyphers:
If code writing isn’t your thing but you still need to send secret correspondence, you can try making your own invisible ink!

All you need is some lemon juice and a Q-tip!

Write your message on paper in lemon juice and let dry. Then hold over a heat source to reveal your secret message as the lemon juice browns!

Another thing you can do if you don't want to write the code yourself is to use a website! Jonesy showed me a website (Click me!) that can code your messages for you!

That’s all for today’s Royals Lesson! Let me know what you want to learn next!
