Anne do a great deal of engagements in one day, but royal reporters and correspondents notice that she speed through a lot of her engagements. That's how she's able to fit in so many in one day.
I'm not sure she competes, but her workload is something she's personally comfortable with. She mentioned this in the doc that was made about her a couple of years ago, I believe. The royals do things in their own pace and what they're comfortable with. I don't think they're sitting in their offices plotting out how many more engagements they can get done than another member of the family. Also, Anne is free to do what she want, because her kids are grown and out of the house. She don't have the responsibility William and Catherine have with two crumb snatchers at home.

Like many people - seems to say one thing and do the opposite.
I know the purpose of this thread, but we don't have to tear down a member of the royal family because her number of engagements aren't on the same level as those who's been in the job longer than her, and that has gained a great deal of responsility than she have at this point.
Numbers are different, because all their roles are different from each other.
