    What is "royal handle"?

    Hello

    What does "royal handle" mean in the sentence below?
    "I had my own business card, emblazoned with my name and royal handle."
    I goggled it but couldn't figure it out.
    Is it some kind of pattern or something?
    Anyone knows?

    Thanks.

    "Handle" in this case is a slang term for a name, or a nickname, or a title. The character's honorary title in the story was "Queen of Customer Service", so that was her "royal" (due to the use of "Queen") handle.

    Re: What is "royal handle"?

    Thank you both so much.
    My mind was occupied with the term "royal handle", and I forgot to google these two words seperately.
    Now I know better and I will pay attention to this.
    Thanks a lot.

    Note that your question 'Anyone knows?' should be 'Does anyone know?'
