British Royal Family Engagements 2020

Weekly Update to 9th January, 2020

Welcome to the new year and another series of posts analyzing the BRF and their official engagements.

Just a reminder. I only use the Court Circular so even though we may see royals out and about if what they were doing isn’t listed BY NAME in the CC then it isn’t counted here e.g. the Queen, William and Catherine’s attendance at church last Sunday (CC said ‘divine service was held … and no listing of who attended) and Harry and Meghan’s visit to Canada House was also not mentioned in the CC.

I will only start new sections as people start to do them as well as only include a royal once they have done an officially recognised duty in the CC.

Total Engagements with Individual Percentage of Total

HM The Queen – 1 (7.7%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 3 (23.1%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 1 (7.7%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 4 (30.8%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 1 (7.7%)
HRH The Princess Royal – 2 (15.4%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 1 (7.7%)


The League Table

HRH The Earl of Wessex – 4
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 3
HRH The Princess Royal – 2
HM The Queen – 1
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 1
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 1
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 1


Year to Date Total – 13

Percentage and Total of Engagements

The number in brackets is the number of engagements carried out by that age-group.

90s (Elizabeth, Philip) – 7.7% (1)
80s (Kent, Alexandra)
70s (Charles, Camilla, Richard, Birgitte, Michael, Marie-Christine) – 7.7% (1)
60s (Anne, Tim) – 15.4% (2)
50s (Andrew, Edward, Sophie) – 38.5% (5)
40s
30s (William, Kate, Harry, Meghan, Beatrice, Jack) – 30.8% (4)
20s (Eugenie) – 0%
10s (Louise, James) – 0%
Over Retirement Age (67) – 30/8% (4)

Number of Days on which a royal undertook Official Engagements to 9th January, 2020

HM The Queen – 1
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 3
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 1
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 2
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 1
HRH The Princess Royal – 1
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 1


Royal Palaces where Events Occurred to 9th January, 2020

One of the interesting things about ‘where engagements’ happen, I have noticed in reading the Future Engagements page are that there are some engagements planned for Bagshot Park such as dinners. I assume this is due to the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace.

St James’ Palace – 1
Kensington Palace – 4
Sandringham House – 1


Types of Engagements from 1st January to the 9th January, 2020

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.

Concert – 1
Conference – 1
Debate – 1
Dinner – 1
Meeting – 4
Presented The Queen Elizabeth’s Prize for Academic Excellence – 1
Received – 3
Reception/s – 1
Training Session – 1

Patronages that were Supported via an Official Engagement 1st January to the 9th January, 2020

British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) – 1
Early Years – 1
England Hockey – 1
Friends of Cathedral Music’s Diamond Fund for Choristers – 1
National Youth Jazz Orchestra – 2
Oxford Farming Conference – 2
Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – 2
The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award – 1
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation – 1

Organisations that were Supported via an Official Engagement from 1st January to the 9th January, 2020

*Honourable Company of Air Pilots – 1
The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Academic Excellence – 1

*William ‘received’ the Master of the Honourable Company on the 9th. Why this is worth mentioning, I think, is that Andrew would have been doing this in the past as he was Grand Master. This could be a sign that William is going to take it over or that William is simply taking on some of Andrew’s commitments rather than having the engagement cancelled. There may be many reasons of course. This is the first time I have seen an Andrew association being connected with someone else since he stood down last November.

Countries of the UK where Engagements Occurred to 9th January, 2020

England – 13

Unofficial Engagements to 9th January, 2020

Weekly Update to 16th January, 2020

Sorry for the delay but you may have heard that as well as massive bush fires Australia has been hit with storms resulting in flash floods. The volunteer force that works in that area is the SES (State Emergency Service). I belong to my local unit and I have spent the past four days working largely in the logistical area of putting together ‘teams’ ensuring that no RFS guys are also asked to double up and go straight into SES work. We really want them to get a rest knowing that the fire season isn’t over yet. It was a long weekend but we have now put together the required ‘new’ teams and I am able to return to a ‘normal life’ with only occasional needs to go into the office and work there.

As usual the second week of the year does see an increase in the number of royals back to work with most now having returned. The Kent’s haven’t but as the Duke is 84 and Princess Alexandra is 83 I think we can forgive them for taking a bit longer. I am not counting Meghan due to the recent announcement.

MISSING DAYS: Yes – 16 DAYS into the year and the online British Monarchy website is ‘missing days’ already.

January – 13th and 14th – engagements missed – 13

Total Engagements with Individual Percentage of Total

HM The Queen – 2 (1 – up 1 – 3.7%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 6 (11.1%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 3 (5.6%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 9 (3 – up 6 – 16.7%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 5 (1 – up 4 – 9.3%)
HRH The Duke of Sussex – 1 (1.2%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 9 (4 – up 5 – 16.7%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 3 (1 – up 2 – 5.6%)
HRH The Princess Royal – 11 (2 – up 9 – 20.4%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 3 (5.6%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 2 (1 – up 1 – 3.7%)


*I am referring to Harry the way he is referenced in the CC. When he appears with something other than HRH The Duke of Sussex I will change to that … as I did in 2018 when he went from HRH Prince Henry of Wales to HRH The Duke of Sussex

Royal Palaces where Events Occurred to 16th January, 2020

One of the interesting things about ‘where engagements’ happen, I have noticed in reading the Future Engagements page are that there are some engagements planned for Bagshot Park such as dinners. When these events did take place the CC didn’t record a place. They were simply under the heading of St James’ Palace, which is where Edward’s office is and so that is where I have located the lunch and dinner. I wonder why the FE specified Bagshot when the CC decided not to specify anywhere?

Buckingham Palace – 1
St James’ Palace – 5
Kensington Palace – 9
Sandringham House – 2
Birkhall – 3*


*Charles and Camilla had three engagements listed under Clarence House but they are also referred to as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay which they only use when in Scotland so I have taken an educated guess and given these events to Birkhall. Normally the CC indicates if the event is moved to Dumfries House.

No apologies necessary in my opinion as you were certainly needed for this vital volunteer work. I'm hoping that the recent rain in parts of Australia is offering some relief though of course flooding is always a concern after a fire.

Weekly Update to 23rd January, 2020

The weeks are flying by … and the royals are almost all back to work. The Kent’s still haven’t done anything officially although both the Duke and Princess Alexandra have events in the FE for next week.

Both Charles and Sophie have been overseas, while Camilla is scheduled to go to Poland for her most high profile solo event since marrying Charles - the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
