I'd agree that the designation tag is suitable for recording this information.

However, pretty much all the other commonly used values for
designation=* use lower case letters and underscores. I guess this
helps to emphasise that it takes a finite set of defined values rather
than being a free text field. I'd therefore suggest the following
values instead:

designation = king_georges_field
designation = queen_elizabeth_ii_field

(Note I've also made the second one singular to match the first; and
also dropped the apostrophe from the first, since it didn't seem to
fit in with the space and underscore format.)
