Weekly update to 13th August, 2015

Andrew carried out two engagements in Singapore and the Queen officially arrived at Balmoral. There were the only engagements for the family this week.

I only have entries on the website for the 9th, 10th and 11th. There were engagements where someone represented the Queen but those things aren’t engagements for any of the royals so I don’t count them e.g.By command of The Queen, Ms. Catherine Nettleton (Vice-Marshal of the Diplomatic Corps) called upon His Excellency Dr. Dalhatu Tafida at Nigeria House, 9 Northumberland Avenue, London WC2, today in order to bid farewell to His Excellency upon relinquishing his appointment as High Commissioner for the Federal Republic of Nigeria in London.

My informal count for Beatrice of which I am aware is at 26 thanks to Duchesschicana who gave me information about more engagements for her. That means she has three official engagements and 23 that had they been done by other royals would have been counted as an engagement.

HM The Queen – 275 (274 – up 1 – 11.3%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 171 (171– no change – 7.0%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 367 (367 – no change – 15.0%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 176 (176 – no change – 7.2%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 72 (72 – no change – 2.9%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 25 (25 – no change – 1.0%)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 57 (57 – no change – 2.3%)
HRH The Duke of York – 185 (183 – up 2 – 7.6%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 3 (3 – no change – 0.1%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 2 (2 – no change – 0.08%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 192 (192 – no change – 7.9%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 117 (117 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Princess Royal - 340 (340 – no change – 13.9%)
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence - 38 (38 – no change – 1.6%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 157 ( 157 – no change – 6.4%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 72 (72 – no change – 2.9%)
HRH The Duke of Kent – 118 (118 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 9 (9 – no change – 0.4%)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 6 (6 – no change – 0.25%)
HRH Princess Alexandra – 61 (61 – no change – 2.5%)


The 'league table'

There has been some discussion on various threads at times about reducing the size of the royal family. IF the idea is for the royal family to be Charles and his family and maybe his siblings these are those who would be doing duties. Charles and his line are in purple and his siblings and spouses are in green. The Queen and Philip are in red.


HRH The Prince of Wales – 367
HRH The Princess Royal – 340
HM The Queen – 275
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 192
HRH The Duke of York – 185
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 176
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – 171
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 157
HRH The Duke of Kent – 118
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 117
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 72
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 72
HRH Princess Alexandra – 61
HRH Prince Henry of Wales – 57
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence – 38
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 25
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 9
HRH Princess Michael of Kent – 6

HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 3
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 2

HRH The Duchess of Kent – 0

Year to date total – 2444 (2441 – up 3)

76.1% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses – same.
46.8% done by the main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) – same.
18.2% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 – same.
32.7% done by those 70 and above – same.
72.0% are being done by those over 60 – same.
41.8% were done by those in their 60s – down.
57.8% were done by those over retirement age – same.


NOTE: I am aware that Anne is now over retirement age and I will attempt to figure out how to adjust my figures so that that last % is accurate to include Anne from now on.

Days on which official engagements were undertaken to the 13th August, 2015

HM The Queen – 95

FAILURE of British Monarchy Website to UPDATE CC

The weekly failure of the British Monarchy website:

Still missing from earlier in the year – 22nd, 23rd, 24th July and the 4th and 6th August.

They also have nothing for the 7th, 8th, 12th or 13th August but it is possible that there were no engagements on those days.

Weekly update to 20th August, 2015

Other than the Commemorative events for VP Day there are no other engagements listed for this past week. Eight members of the BRF attended events that day for a total of 16 engagements.

My informal count for Beatrice of which I am aware is at 26. That means she has three official engagements and 23 that had they been done by other royals would have been counted as an engagement. I didn’t count the ‘Lean In’ Dinner as it appears to have been a private function and not a fundraiser or other charity type event with only 15 or so people present.

HM The Queen – 277 (275 – up 2 – 11.3%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 173 (171– up 2 – 7.0%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 369 (367 – up 2 – 15.0%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 178 (176 – up 2 – 7.2%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 72 (72 – no change – 2.9%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 25 (25 – no change – 1.0%)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 57 (57 – no change – 2.3%)
HRH The Duke of York – 185 (185 – no change – 7.5%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 3 (3 – no change – 0.1%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 2 (2 – no change – 0.08%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 194 (192 – up 2 – 7.9%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 119 (117 – up 2 – 4.8%)
HRH The Princess Royal - 340 (340 – no change – 13.8%)
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence - 38 (38 – no change – 1.5%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 159 ( 157 – up 2 – 6.5%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 74 (72 – up 2 – 3.0%)
HRH The Duke of Kent – 118 (118 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 9 (9 – no change – 0.4%)

They also have nothing for the 7th, 8th, 12th or 13th August but it is possible that there were no engagements on those days. This has now been confirmed by Cepe – thank you.

The CC also has nothing listed for the 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th or 20th but again there may very well be nothing listed.

August Figures since 2000.

Some people may think that this year's numbers for August are unusually low so I have decided to give my figures for August since 2000


2000 - 87 (this included the 100th Birthday for the Queen Mum and I gave one engagement to all members of the family for the 4th August - which was 17 of these engagements because there was a 'balcony appearance'. These days I only give the figure to those mentioned specifically in the CC and not to 'other members of the RF')
2001 - 85

2002
-100 (a Jubilee Year with engagements still happening in the first week of August, including the Manchester Commonwealth Games)
2003 - 52

2004 - 36
2005 - 24
2006 - 26
2007 - 49
2008 - 108 (Anne and the Beijing Olympics added a few here while the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester were on an overseas tour to the Solomon Islands)
2009 - 31

2010 - 22
2011 - 54
2012 - 117 (London Olympics added to this figure of course)
2013 - 29

2014 - 44 (with 27 of those on the 100th anniversary of the start of WWI)

There will be no update this week as the last entry in the CC was the 16th August when Divine Service was held at Balmoral.


It is rare for there to be a Sunday with the Queen in residence at Balmoral for there to be no entry in the CC about the church service but that is the case this week - so presumably there was also no church service even on the 23rd August.


If Cepe, or anyone else, has another online or print entries that suggest that there were engagements after the 16th August I would appreciate that.

The weekly failure of the British Monarchy website: 31st August, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th September (again there may have been nothing.)

If the Future Engagements was correct there should have been at least 3 engagements for the Duke of Gloucester on the 3rd September but as of today, 5th September in Sydney, that isn’t up.

Still missing from earlier in the year – 22nd, 23rd, 24th July, 4th and 6th August.

Iluvbertie: Thanks, as usual.

I was interested to see a goose egg in the "Ceremony of the Keys" category, so I went to the searchable Court Circular and did a search back to '97 on KEYS. What was interesting to me is how irregular the practice is (and how devoted Anne is to jockeys ).

I'm guessing the ceremony happens more often, but is not always reflected in the CC? Particularly at Holyroodhouse? I was also surprised how rare it is for any of the family to visit the tower!

The Ceremony of Keys happens every night at the Tower. It's being done continuously for 700 years. It isn't really a ceremony that needs a Royal present for it. They also do a key ceremony in Edinburgh when the Queen does Scotland week in July.

The Tower and the Royal Family do not share the happiest of histories, I believe. Senior Yeoman Gaurds stand in for H.M do they not for the ceremony at the tower?

Yes - my point was that it makes the CC only sporadically. That the CC is highly variable even about regular, annual events.

If there isn't a royal present for the ceremony, why would it make the CC? Did this year's swan upping make the CC?
