i think its probably in part due to the fact that the Royals can go to any event they want to keeping track of them is probably impossible for who ever is putting up the events online. I know it was said somehwere Harry was meant to attend one event but another over ran so he didn't go. If they attend several events in a day theres no way the poor web editor would keep up

Not really as the CC could easily just ask them where they went and record it that way. The CC is the official account of where the royals were so this is an official decision to simply record that they went to the games.

Weekly update to 9th August.

A very quiet week in terms of number of engagements because the CC is listing 'visit the Olympic Games' not showing them moving between events.

Very few non-games listed events.


HM The Queen - 429 (427 - up 2)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 311 (310 - up 1)
HRH The Prince of Wales - 467 (467 – no change)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 231 (231 – no change)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 45 (42 - up 3)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 67 (63 - up 4)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 68 (63 – up 5)
HRH The Duke of York - 324 (324 - no change)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York - 18 (18 - up 1)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14 (14 - up 1)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 294 (289 - up 5)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 260 (256 – up 4)
HRH The Princess Royal - 349 (340 – up 9)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 239 (232 – up 7)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 90 (88 – up 2)
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142 (140 – up 2)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8 (8 - up 2)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20 (20 – up 2)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 20 (20 – up 2)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 75 (75 – no change)


Order from most downwards - the 'league table' if you like. I refuse to calculate how people are moving up or down that list. I do move people around who have moved up or down but I am not putting in how many places they are moving - although usually it is only one place in either direction.

HRH The Prince of Wales - 467
HM The Queen – 429
HRH The Princess Royal - 349
HRH The Duke of York - 324
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – 311
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 294
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 260
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 239
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 231
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 90
HRH Princess Alexandra - 75
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 68
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 67
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 45
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20
HRH Princess Michael of Kent -20
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 18
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8

Year to date total - 3472 with 76.5% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses. The remaining 23.5% have been done by her grandchildren, first cousins and their spouses. This sees a change from last week with the Queen, her children and their spouses decreasing their percentage of engagements again in comparison to the grandchildren, cousins and their spouses.

The main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) has remained at 46.5% mainly due to the visits to the Olympics every day by the Cambridges and Harry.

21% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 - The Queen and Philip.
28% done by those 70 and above (The Queen, Philip, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra)
68.5% are being done by those over 60 - meaning that 47% of all engagements so far this year have been carried out by Charles, Camilla, Anne, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Micheal (the ones in their 60s).

I would like to add that although we have seen some of the royals at the games they weren't there officially e.g. Beatrice and Eugenie (and yes Andrew did attend one day officially even though we didn't see him).

Going back through my records this is only the second week of the year in which Charles didn't carry out a single official engagement - the other was the first week of the year.

I also found it interesting that Beatrice's birthday wasn't noted but every other royal to have had a birthday this year did have their birthday noted (no I haven't counted having a birthday as an engagement but did find it interesting that this was the first one not noted).

Going back through my records this is only the third week of the year in which Charles didn't carry out a single official engagement - the others were last week and the first week of the year. As he and Camilla still have their Jubille tour Down Under to do I do think they are possibly not sitting around doing nothing but are getting briefings etc for that tour as well as upcoming tours - as well as preparations for upcoming engagements.

The Searching Future Engagements on the Monarchy website indicates only 8 engagements for the rest of August - The Queen and Philip, Edward and Sophie and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, and Princess Alexandra to attend the Opening Ceremony of the Paralympics and Edward to attend the next day of the games. Ity will be interesting to see how this plays out over the next two weeks.

Weekly update to 16th August.

The second quietest week of the year so far - two engagements all week from the entire family - one each to The Queen (an audience with the Scottish first minister) and Philip (a reception with senior officers from one of his regiments). The only quieter week was the first week of the year when only The Duchess of Gloucester carried out one engagement.

HM The Queen - 432 (431 - up 1)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 317 (315 - up 1)

One interesting thing in looking at the Future Engagements is that they list Edward and Sophie as 'carrying out engagements in Canada' in September but there is no mention of William and Kate carrying out engagements in Singapore, Malaysia, The Solomons or Tuvalu even though they will be doing that tour at the same time as Edward and Sophie and it is an official Jubilee tour. I find it interesting because the Future Engagements doesn't give all future engagements for every royal.

The Royal website are very good at forward engagements and it is sourced through BP. DDoC's engagements generally (as there does not seem to be a really hard and fast rule) are on the PoW website, sourced by CH and the information is generally thin. Why they have to have separate website confuses me - the DoY has one as well!

I imagine that William and Catherine's engagements will appear on the CC nearer the time. The Wessex trip to the Caribbean was listed but their engagements were not listed until much closer to the time.

From someone who has been following the CC and Future Engagements this year very closely (like daily, weekly and monthly ahead) I can say that the Future Engagements do not reflect accurately what will be happening - the FE has about 50% of engagements listed in advance.

My point was that Edward and Sophie are listed as touring Canada and yet at the same time William and Kate will be on their official Jubilee tour and yet they aren't listed as even carrying out engagements at the same time.

According to the FE there should have been no engagements over this past week and yet there were two carried out.

They have different websites because like everyone else they are entitled to have one.

The CC records engagements AFTER they have happened.

I still find it strange that the FE lists Edward and Sophie as carrying out engagements in Canada but there is no mention of William and Kate carrying out engagements at the same time.

Edward and Sophie were listed as 'carrying out engagements' for their Caribbean tour at least a month in advance - as far in advance as this Canada trip is being listed but William and Kate aren't (Harry was listed as carrying out engagements about a month in advance as well). These weren't the details of the engagements mind you but simply that they were going to be carrying out engagements, which is why I find it strange that nothing is yet listed for William and Kate.

Is this to be taken at face value - there will be no tour done by William and Kate in the fall?

No - it means that the FE isn't putting up all the FEs but only some of them.

Weekly update to 30th August.

Another quiet week with only a few engagements mostly to do with the Paralympics (12 of the total of 16 were at the Opening Ceremony of attending the Games).

HM The Queen - 435 (432 - up 3)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 317 (317 - no change)
HRH The Prince of Wales - 467 (467 – no change)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 232 (231 – up 1)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47 (45 - up 2)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 72 (70 - up 2)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 69 (69 – no change)
HRH The Duke of York - 325 (325 - no change)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York - 18 (18 - no change)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14 (14 - no change)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 297 (294 - up 3)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 261 (260 – up 1)
HRH The Princess Royal - 356 (355 – up 1)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 240 (239 – up 1)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 92 (91 – up 1)
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142 (142 – no change)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8 (8 - no change)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20 (20 – no change)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 20 (20 – no change)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 76 (75 – up 1)


Order from most downwards - the 'league table' if you like. I refuse to calculate how people are moving up or down that list. I do move people around who have moved up or down but I am not putting in how many places they are moving - although usually it is only one place in either direction.

HRH The Prince of Wales - 467
HM The Queen – 435
HRH The Princess Royal - 356
HRH The Duke of York - 325
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – 317
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 297
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 261
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 240
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 232
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 92
HRH Princess Alexandra - 76
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 72
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 69
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20
HRH Princess Michael of Kent -20
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 18
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8

Year to date total - 3509 with 76.5% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses. The remaining 23.5% have been done by her grandchildren, first cousins and their spouses. This sees no change from last week.

The main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) has remained at 46.5%.

21% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 - The Queen and Philip.
28% done by those 70 and above (The Queen, Philip, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra)
69% are being done by those over 60 - meaning that 48% of all engagements so far this year have been carried out by Charles, Camilla, Anne, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Micheal (the ones in their 60s).

According to the Future Engagements there are 131 engagements scheduled for September with none for The Queen, Philip, Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, Harry, Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie, The Duchess of Kent, Prince Michael or Princess Michael. As we know William and Kate are going to do their Jubilee Tour we know that this isn't accurate but after last week's discussion I thought I would do a count and then keep a track of how many actual engagements are done in October. I might add it also says 'The Earl and Countess of Wessex will carry out engagements in Canada' and 'The Princess Royal will carry out engagements on behalf of The Queen for the Jubilee in Zambia' so that number of 131 is probably closer to 200 - given that it is normal to do 4 -5 engagements per royal per day on a tour. I also have trouble believing Charles will go another 4 weeks doing no engagements after having done none for the last 3 weeks.

I would be surprised if Charles does not have any engagements for the next 4 weeks. They will probably appear on his website nearer the time.

Are the 131 for October or September as the Cambridges and Wessex's are doing their foreign engagements in September?

When does Anne go to Zambia? I really hope it is not at the same time as the Cambridge's tour as Anne will receive no coverage at all. The Wessex's are going to Canada at the same time, but they would have received no coverage even if it was not at the same time as the Cambridge's.

I have edited my earlier post to indicate September not October (October's engagements aren't up yet).

Anne is in Zambia from 24th September to at least the end of the month. I wouldn't expect much coverage anyway coming straight after William and Kate's tour.

She didn't get much coverage on her earlier tour of Africa this year that overlapped partially with Edward and Sophie's Jubilee tour of the Caribbean.

The only royals to get full coverage in the British press are the main line these days - The Queen, of course, Philip, Charles and Camilla - sometimes, William and Kate always and Harry. The rest simply go about their duties with little or no press coverage.

Over the next month The Duke of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra are going to be very busy but they will get virutally no coverage - just as the Duke didn't get much coverage of his Jubilee tours earlier this year.

Weekly update to 6th September

Another quiet week with a total of 19 for the week with Andrew being the busiest with 6 for the week. Back in June and July that was normal for the most senior royals on most days.

Interesting to note that the Braemar Games weren't an official engagement for any of those we saw attending but Andrew's Shard drop was classed as an official engagement.

HM The Queen - 435 (435 - no change)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 317 (317 - no change)
HRH The Prince of Wales - 467 (467 – no change)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 232 (232 – no change)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47 (47 - no change)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 73 (72 - up 1)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 71 (69 – up 2)
HRH The Duke of York - 331 (325 - up 6)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York - 18 (18 - no change)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14 (14 - no change)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 301 (297 - up 4)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 263 (261 – up 2)
HRH The Princess Royal - 357 (356 – up 1)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 241 (240 – up 1)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 94 (92 – up 2)
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142 (142 – no change)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8 (8 - no change)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20 (20 – no change)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 20 (20 – no change)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 76 (76 – no change)


Order from most downwards - the 'league table' if you like. I refuse to calculate how people are moving up or down that list. I do move people around who have moved up or down but I am not putting in how many places they are moving - although usually it is only one place in either direction.

HRH The Prince of Wales - 467
HM The Queen – 435
HRH The Princess Royal - 357
HRH The Duke of York - 331
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – 317
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 297
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 261
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 241
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 232
HRH The Duke of Kent - 142
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 94
HRH Princess Alexandra - 76
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge - 73
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 71
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 20
HRH Princess Michael of Kent -20
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 18
HRH Princess Eugenie of York - 14
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 8

Year to date total - 3528 with 76.5% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses. The remaining 23.5% have been done by her grandchildren, first cousins and their spouses. This sees no change from last week.

The main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) has remained at 46.5%.

21% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 - The Queen and Philip.
28% done by those 70 and above (The Queen, Philip, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra)
69% are being done by those over 60 - meaning that 48% of all engagements so far this year have been carried out by Charles, Camilla, Anne, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Micheal (the ones in their 60s).

Weekly update to 13th September

Things were certainly busier this week - although very little for The Queen, Philip, Charles and Camilla.

One interesting note is that Eugenie's presentation of the medal at the Paralympic Games didn't count as an official engagement, which is why there has been no change to her totals. I find that interesting because when Kate presented a medal her attendance at the games was an official engagement.

The royal tours have added some numbers to William and Kate of course but also to Edward and Sophie who are doing a lot more, it seems on their tour without the coverage.

Year to date total - 3626 with 76% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses. The remaining 24% have been done by her grandchildren, first cousins and their spouses. This sees a slight increase by those outside the The Queen, her husband their children and their spouse - presumably because William and Kate are doing some engagements this week.

The main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) has dropped to 46% probably because most of the duties this week has been done by those outside this group.

20.5% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 - The Queen and Philip a slight drop due to them being on holidays I presume.
27% done by those 70 and above (The Queen, Philip, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra) which is again a slight drop presumably because most of them are also on holidays.
67% are being done by those over 60 - meaning that 40% of all engagements so far this year have been carried out by Charles, Camilla, Anne, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Micheal (the ones in their 60s).

The FE lists 24 engagements for the upcoming week - but lists nothing for William and Kate (who are still touring the Far East and the Pacific) for most of this week. It seems that the FE is rather limited in what it includes. The only royals supposedly doing duties this upcoming week are Edward, Sophie, The Dukes of Gloucester and Kent and Princess Alexandra - so it will be interesting to see who actually does duties this week.

HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 20 (20 – no change)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 84 (78 – up 6)

Year to date total - 3817 with 75.5% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses. The remaining 24.5% have been done by her grandchildren, first cousins and their spouses. This sees a slight increase by those outside the The Queen, her husband their children and their spouse - presumably because of the numbers down by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester with both couples doing overseas trips. The Gloucesters went to Finland.

The main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) has dropped to 46% probably because most of the duties this week has been done by those outside this group.

19.5% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 - The Queen and Philip another slight drop due to them being on holidays I presume.
26.3% done by those 70 and above (The Queen, Philip, The Duke of Kent, Prince Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra) which is again a slight drop presumably because most of them are also on holidays.
66.34% are being done by those over 60 - meaning that 40% of all engagements so far this year have been carried out by Charles, Camilla, Anne, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Micheal (the ones in their 60s).

A couple of weeks back I pointed out that the FE had a total of 131 engagements listed for September but so far in September there has actually been 308 with over a week of the month to go.

Kataryn, I think,mentioned last year that the prime duty of the Duchess of Cambridge is to have offspring. Having too many duties, and having to remain thin and glamorous while doing them, could interfere with conception. Most women who want to get pregnant need to relax. Of course there are those who get pregnant no matter how much stress they are under. But Catherine may not be like that. However, they may have wanted Catherine to take up her Duchess duties before having a family. Who knows? It's good something is private these days in the lives in the Cambridges.
I think the Duchess would conceive more rapidly,however, if she lay around the palace and (figuratively ) ate bonbons and read books, waiting on hand and foot, and entertaining her chums. All this walking around on stilleto heals is not a maternal thing to do. Relax, please.

I don't see what any of that has to do with the engagements of the royal family. If Catherine sat around and popped out children for the rest of we life she'd be slated. The Queen managed to have four children whilst she was Queen, Catherine can do it whilst doing very little.
