British Royal Family Engagements 2019

Weekly Update to 3rd January, 2019

This is the first update for 2019. How the years have flown by since I first did this in 2012.

Thank you to all those who have supported me over the years directly via comments, PMs and the ‘thanks’ box but also to all of the 1000s of people who have simply read the posts each week. It makes it seem that maybe my hobby isn’t such a ‘strange’ one after all.

Short and sweet this week with only two engagements so far this year and no prizes for guessing which two members of the BRF they belong to – Charles and Anne.

As in past years there will be one post per week until there is too much information for one post. I will also only include a royal once their name has appeared undertaking an engagement in the CC. That is the same for things like palaces where engagements occur, overseas engagements and meetings with politicians. Short and sweet - if it isn't here then there has been none so far this year under that heading.

If I am told I will continue to do an unofficial record for the York princesses but I don’t go looking for that information – although I often find it on their pages here anyway.

Weekly Update to 10th January, 2019

The majority of the family are still on holidays although some are doing the odd engagement e.g. The Queen did one of her usual Sunday at Sandringham engagements. This was the one where she presented a Bible to a pupil. She still has a couple of Academic Excellence awards for local schools and also an attendance at Sunday School presentations to do while on holidays. Interestingly with all the discussions around Brexit she hasn’t had an audience with Mrs May but that may very well happen this week with Mrs May, and maybe other members of the Privy Council travelling to Norfolk to see her.

I have seen a number of sites describing a couple of William’s engagements as ‘unannounced’ but they were ones where he ‘received’ an individual. These are never announced, like the Queen’s audiences and council meetings. They announce public engagements in advance not all official engagements.

I am going to add a section on ‘announced engagements’ for the upcoming week, month and year (yes there already an announced engagement for June on the FE). Interestingly two announced engagements have already been taken off the FE – one for Sophie and one for Alexandra.

Total Engagements with Individual Percentage of Total

HM The Queen – 1 (8.3%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 1 (1 – no change – 8.3%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 3 (25%)
HRH The Duchess of Sussex – 1 (8.3%)
HRH The Princess Royal – 5 (1 – up 4 – 41.7%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 1 (8.3%)


The League Table

HRH The Princess Royal – 5
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 3
HM The Queen – 1
HRH The Prince of Wales – 1
HRH The Duchess of Sussex – 1
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 1

Year to Date Total – 12 (2 – up 10)

Percentage of Engagements

90s (Elizabeth, Philip) – 8.3%
80s (Edward Kent, Alexandra) – 0%
70s (Charles, Camilla, Richard, Birgitte, Michael, Marie-Christine) – 16.7%
60s (Anne, Tim) – 41.7%
50s (Andrew, Edward, Sophie) – 0%
40s
30s (William, Kate, Harry, Meghan, Beatrice, Jack) – 33.3%
20s (Eugenie) – 0%
10s (Louise) – 0%
Over Retirement Age (65) (All the 60s upwards) – 66.7%

Number of Days on which a royal undertook Official Engagements to 10th January, 2019

HM The Queen – 1
HRH The Prince of Wales – 1

Royal Palaces where Events Occurred to 10th January, 2019

Kensington Palace – 3
Sandringham House – 1


Types of Engagements from 4th January – 10th January, 2019

Just a reminder that this is the type of engagement that occurred in the past week but the total is the total for the year not just for the week. This week it is obvious that all of these types of engagements occurred during this past week as none of them appeared last week. However, that isn’t always the case e.g. there may be no ‘opened’ next week so it won’t appear in the list but will appear again when there is another ‘opened’. ‘Presented Bible’ probably won’t appear again this year as it is usually a once a year engagement.

Lunch – 1
Opened – 2
Presented Bible – 1
Received – 4
Visit – 3

Patronages that were Supported via an Official Engagement from 4th January – 10th January, 2019

London Air Ambulance’s 30th Anniversary Campaign – 1
National Association of Citizens Advice Bureaux – 1
Royal Yachting Association – 1
Smart Works – 1
Worshipful Company of Masons – 1

Organisations that were Supported via an Official Engagement from 4th January – 10th January, 2019

Gloucestershire Heritage Hub – 1
Jefferies Arena at Yate Outdoor Sports Complex – 1

Used Secondary Title to 10th January, 2019

Announced Engagements for the week 11th – 17th January, 2019

For these engagements I am using the Future Engagements on the British Monarchy Website, The Prince of Wales' website, The Duke of York’s Website and Gert’s Royals – Cambridge and Sussex pages although I am only including ‘confirmed engagements’ from there.

If a royal doesn’t appear in this list they have no engagements listed for the upcoming week in any of these sites as at today (11th January, Sydney time). Engagements may occur that aren’t announced, especially by The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke of York.

The engagements that were announced on the FE and have been removed I am keeping because last year that had The Duchess of Gloucester doing a trip to Spain for the tennis for about four weeks, then about two weeks out they removed it and then, guess what – that trip went ahead exactly as originally announced.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 2
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 2 (edited as found another engagement for this upcoming week)
HRH The Duke of Sussex – 4 (edited as found another engagement for this upcoming week)
HRH The Duchess of Sussex – 5 (edited as found another engagement for this upcoming week)
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 1
HRH The Princess Royal – 10
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 1

For the rest of January:

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 2
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 2
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 1
HRH The Duke of Sussex – 3
HRH The Duchess of Sussex – 4
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 5 (28th listed simply as Barcelona with no details so only 1 counted here but maybe more will be done)
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 1
HRH The Princess Royal – 24
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 2
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 1
HRH Princess Alexandra – 3 (includes the now deleted visit to the Swan Sanctuary and Presentation of the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service)

For the rest of 2019

This list is only those who have announced engagements past the end of January and the count is from 1st February to 31st December

HRH The Earl of Wessex – 7
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 13 (includes the now deleted evensong at Wells Cathedral on 26th February)
HRH The Princess Royal – 45
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 6
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 8
HRH Princess Alexandra – 3

Weekly Update to 17th January, 2019

A few more royals have undertaken their first engagements for the year – The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duchess of Cambridge, The Duke of Sussex, The Duke of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and The Duchess of Gloucester.

The news has been full, of course, of Philip’s accident and the visits of the Cambridges and Sussexes but Anne has steadily gone about her business with no coverage at all as per usual. The media only want to cover those whose clothes they can describe rather than the royals who actually do work regularly for their charities – sad state of affairs when the clothes they wear is more important than the causes they support.

Total Engagements with Individual Percentage of Total

HM The Queen – 2 (1 – up 1 – 3.4%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 2 (1 – up 1 – 3.4%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 3 (5.2%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 6 (3 – up 3 – 10.3%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 3 (5.2%)
HRH The Duke of Sussex – 7 (12.1%)
HRH The Duchess of Sussex – 7 (1 – up 6 – 12.1%)
HRH The Duke of York – 1 (1.7%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 2 (3.4%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 4 (6.9%)
HRH The Princess Royal – 16 (5 – up 11 – 27.6%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 2 (1 – up 1 – 3.4%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 3 (5.2%)

HRH The Princess Royal – 16

Types of Engagements from 11th January – 17th January, 2019

Just a reminder that this is the type of engagement that occurred in the past week but the total is the total for the year not just for the week.

Organisations that were Supported via an Official Engagement from 11th January – 17th January, 2019

A reminder that sometimes the royal patron of an organisation may be accompanied by another royal on and engagement related to one of their patronages. As a result the royal patronage is listed in both the above listed of organisations supported by their patron as well as here being supported by a royal who is not their patron. It is also possible for a royal to attend an event related to an organisation of which they are not the patron as happened last year with The Duchess of Cambridge attended and event for City Farms of which The Princess Royal is the actual patron. In those circumstances it is possible for an organisation to be both a patronage and a non-patronage.

Barrow Foodbank – 1
Birkenhead Institute Replacement War Memorial – 2
Born Free Foundation – 1
Collins Aerospace – 1
Fife Arms – 2
Hive Wirral Youth Zone – 2
Hub for Project John – 1
King Henry’s Walk Community Garden – 1

Tomorrow’s World Wirral – 2

Royals who have Official Meetings with Politicians to 17th January, 2019

HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 1

Used Secondary Title to 17th January, 2019

When I first said I was going to do this I mentioned that The Duke of York is not referred to as The Earl of Inverness in Scotland and the CC has again shown that to be the case. The one engagement The Duke of York has done was in Scotland and the CC called him The Duke of York.

HRH The Prince of Wales – 2 (The Duke of Rothesay – 1 Lord of the Isles – 1)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 3 (The Duchess of Rothesay – 3)


Countries of the UK where Engagements Occurred to 17th January, 2019

Regarding the league table: shouldn't the DofS have 7 instead of 1.
