For the third week in a row the BRF website has only updated the CC twice during the week - on Wednesday and Thursday their times. They are up to the 1st June (last Wednesday) and given past performance I don't expect them to put up the 2nd now until next Wednesday when they will put up the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th and then on Thursday they will put up the 8th. Why I have no idea.

I therefore have a decision to make - do my updates on a Saturday each week my time (my preference) but from Thursday to Wednesdays - or to do the updates the following Wednesday's and still go from Friday to Thursday.

I will not actually make a decision until August as I am leaving for the UK shortly and will be travelling for six weeks (next Saturday I will be in The Mall for Trooping for instance but this year going further afield than just London). I will do my best to keep up to date while away of course but seeing the sights does take precedence over this little hobby).

Due to a crashed computer while in London I probably won't be able to do any updates until late July but will do, if people want me to do so even though it won't be weekly for a few weeks.

Update and explanation:

Some people may be wondering how I can post on some threads but not update here - simple answer - I can access the internet through hotel computers and fellow travellers but do not have access to my data.

My tour director thinks he might be able to direct me to a computer place when I get to Paris for a week or so which may be able to help.

As the CC hasn`t updated since the 13th June I wouldn`t be able to do an update this week anyway.

IMO you should not worry about it. Take a little break and enjoy yourself.

The CC has actually managed to get itself up to date to the 16th June (only 4 days behind now).

I know we all enjoyed all the images of the royals at Ascot but as usual the 'engagement count' for Ascot week will be rather low due to the fact that only The Queen and Philip are ever recorded as attending. I love the wording as well:

The Queen, with The Duke of Edinburgh, honoured Ascot Races with her presence today.

The CC on the new site is doing really, really well.

It hasn't updated since the 29th June.

Yes folks you read that correctly - it hasn't been updated for a week (and I know that a number of the royals were in France for last week's services on the Somme and the Duke of Kent has been to Wimbledon - not to mention HM has been to Scotland but the CC is only up to the 29th June.

I have only been reading the CC on the British Monarch website but ... I have never seen it this bad before.

The last update is still the 29th June. In other words the events around the Somme anniversary, Holyrood Week, Charles and Camilla's annual week in Wales, the rest of Anne's overseas trip (and Andrew's I think) along with the Duke of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester regularly attendances at Wimbledon aren't official engagements this year.

I wonder if the audiences on Wednesday will rate as official engagements for the CC.

Seriously no update since the end of June and we are in the middle of July (it has nearly been two weeks with no updates).

For an institution that relies on PR it is deplorable.

FAILURE of British Monarchy Website to UPDATE CC

Finally an update has happened but the following dates are still missing:

30th June
1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th July


These dates include the 100th anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme along with many other events that take place in early July.

I will continue to call out the British Monarchy Website and hope that other places that record things like the CC in one way or another - and they do exist - do the same until someone there actually decides that they need to get their act together and get the information out to the public.

I was curious, so I checked. The 30th - 6th is still MIA. Otherwise the CC is up to date. How odd.

I Tweeted Clarence House, KP and TRF about the omissions. Not that I expect replies, just that I wanted to poke them.

I've always said, the people in charge of managing the royals websites and updates deserve to be fired.

I don't think the royal household puts nearly as much emphasis on the CC as royal watchers do.

Consequently, sometimes the website falls behind or isn't updated.

It is astonishing to me that they probably don't know or don't care that they have forgotten to update a whole week. And that the Queen puts up with that level of ineffectiveness is just .
This is a lady who has been shown in numerous videos checking the placement of every piece of silver and china on the table for a state banquet.
Most of you here believe that she approves what goes in the CC and what does not. If she gets down to that level of detailed decision making, how is it possible that she does not have a method for having the posts double checked? She has someone in charge of checking her gloves, getting them sent to be mended and returned, for heaven's sake. I find in almost unbelievable that these omissions occur - except we know it has happened over and over.

I think those in charge of the website should on top of their game. Now, it could be that they're not getting paid enough and don't care much about their job. It could a range of things. I just think if you've been hired to do a job of running the monarchy's website, you better do your job right.

Lack of updates and missing CC enagement acknowledgements cannot be acceptable.

Prince Harry, William and Kate up royal duties in 2016 but Philip | Royal | News | Daily Express

I still say, the young royals are more focused on the quality of their work than the number of engagements they have conducted throughout the year. Willian and Catherine have increased their duties. The numbers are becoming less important.

I agree. As the article states, it's very difficult to compare numbers. Not all engagements are 'equal'. The younger royal go for quality over quantity.

I also agree with Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine when he says

William and Kate are damned if they do and damned if they don't.

"They are in a very tricky situation in that they don't want to do too much in public so that they eclipse his father and and step-mother."

"Harry has less of a defined role. He is very much the spare but much of what he has done has been incredibly successful of late."



We've talked this subject to death, but things will change when Charles is king, until that time, it's going to be more or less the same.

I think all three are doing exactly what is asked of them.
