There have been no engagements since the last one's I posted. In fact there has been no CC.

Sophie and Edward in SA on 10th April is the only one. Here it is in case the Royal website fails again.

Buckingham Palace

The Earl of Wessex and The Countess of Wessex, Patron, Ubunye Foundation, this morning visited the Mgcamabele Community Centre on Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, Grahamstown, South Africa, and were received by the British High Commissioner to the Republic of South Africa (Her Excellency Mrs Judith Macgregor).

That is interesting as it means that Harry's arrival in Australia and laying the wreath at our War Memorial weren't official engagements for him at all.

Weekly update to 9th April, 2015

In all my years of doing this I have never recorded a week in which absolutely no official engagements took place so this is a first for me. I have only been reading the CC on a regular basis since about 2002 so not all that long but still a first.


HM The Queen - 102 (102 – no change – 11.5%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 54 (54 – no change – 6.1%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 151 (151 – no change – 17.0%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 67 (67 – no change – 7.5%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 43 (43 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 20 (20 – no change – 2.2%)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 11 (11 – no change – 1.2%)* NB The CC has no mention of his visit to the Australian War Memorial on 6th April – this is the sort of event that is normally in the CC but with no CC mention then it was an unofficial duty not an official one.
HRH The Duke of York – 62 (62 – no change – 7.0%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)

If they post date anything I'll let you know.

I think that this engagement being included is wrong. they are on holiday with their children and its included ( and leads me to wonder how its paid for).

Harry's engagement should be in the CC on every level - Uk and Commonwealth. sophie's office is definitely more on the ball than KP.

Louise and James attended with them but were not listed in the CC so the visit was likely a private visit that they organised to coincide with their family holiday.

The engagement of Edward and Sophie is no different to William and Kate taking George to Australia. They are doing official duties and the timing meant that it was in the school holidays so they have arranged to take the children along - so long as they are paying all expenses associated with taking the children there really should be no issue.

Charles took Harry with him when he undertook an official visit to Southern Africa in 1997 and no one objected to that. Charles undertook official engagements and even took Harry to some of them but Harry wasn't mentioned in the CC so he wasn't part of the official party.

The days of leaving the children at home while Mum and Dad are off overseas doing official duties has past it seems. The alternative would be to have either not accepted the invitation OR left the children at home. This way they are able to do both and expose the children to a different culture at the same time.

Weekly update to 16th April, 2015

Many of the royal family were back to work this week after their week off last week.

A note about last week’s figures – they were the wrong set of figures. What I do each week is change the figure inside the brackets to the one outside the brackets before putting the new figure outside the brackets and then doing the ‘up xxx’ or ‘no change’ but for some reason I put the figures from inside the brackets to the outside and so the figures for last week were actually from the end of March and not the ones for the 2nd and 9th April. How I came to make that mistake I don’t know – unless it was something to do with the dose of bronchitis I had at the time.

HM The Queen - 113 (110 – up 3 – 11.5%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 63 (60 – up 3 – 6.4%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 160 (157 – up 3 – 16.2%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 70 (68 – up 2 – 7.1%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47 (47 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 23 (23 – no change – 2.3%)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 11 (11 – no change – 1.1%)
HRH The Duke of York – 68 (64 – up 4 – 6.9%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 82 (79 – up 3 – 8.3%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 46 (45 – up 1 – 4.7%)
HRH The Princess Royal - 156 (142 – up 14 – 15.8%)
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence - 9 (9 – no change – 0.9%)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 54 (49 – up 5 – 5.5%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 32 (31 – no change – 3.2%)
HRH The Duke of Kent – 36 (33 – up 3 – 3.7%)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 3 (3 – no change – 0.3%)

FAILURE of British Monarchy Website to UPDATE CC

The weekly failure of the British Monarchy website: They still have no entry for the 6th April – the day that Harry arrived in Australia and visited the Australian War Memorial. This is the sort of engagement that would normally be included in the CC but there is nothing for this date meaning that Harry has done no official engagements in Australia at all. Maybe this will be corrected, if it is brought to the notice of the powers that be via making this oversight public.

Weekly update to 23rd April, 2015

A slowish week this past one as the royal family return to their work after the Easter break. The Duke of Kent has been quite busy since arriving in Australia – yes he is here but from the coverage he has received it wouldn’t be known which is sad as he has been a true servant of HM for decades and gone wherever asked and has shown great support for the military as both as an active officer as well as since in the Honourary rolls and his work with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. He is the one who normally takes the lead at ANZAC Day commemorations in the UK, except in the big years such as this one.

HM The Queen - 115 (113 – up 2 – 11.1%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 69 (63 – up 6 – 6.6% -accompanied – 36)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 163 (160 – up 3 – 15.7%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 70 – (70 – no change – 6.8% - accompanied – 31)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 47 (47 – no change – 4.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 23 (23 – no change – 2.2% - accompanied – 7)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 11 (11 – no change – 1.1%)
HRH The Duke of York – 68 (68 – no change – 6.6%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 87 (82 – up 5 – 8.4%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 48 (46 – up 2 – 4.6% - accompanied – 14)
HRH The Princess Royal - 169 (156 – up 13 – 16.3%)
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence - 9 (9 – no change – 0.9% - accompanied – 9)
HRH The Duke of Gloucester - 60 ( 54 – up 6 – 5.8%)
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 32 (32 – no change – 3.1% - accompanied – 2)
HRH The Duke of Kent – 48 (36 – up 12 – 4.6%)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 0 (0 – no change – 0% - accompanied – 0)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 3 (3 – no change – 0.3%)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 1 (1 – no change – 0.1% - accompanied – 1)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 14 (11 – up 3 – 1.4%)


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. These discussions often work best if facts and figures can be included rather than just impressions so for those who would like to argue this issue these figures may be usable.

HRH The Princess Royal – 169
HRH The Prince of Wales – 163
HM The Queen – 115
HRH The Earl of Wessex – 87
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall - 70
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh – 69
HRH The Duke of York – 68
HRH The Duke of Gloucester – 60
HRH The Countess of Wessex – 48
HRH The Duke of Kent – 48
HRH The Duke of Cambridge – 47
HRH The Duchess of Gloucester – 32
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 23
HRH Princess Alexandra – 14
HRH Prince Henry of Wales – 11
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence – 9
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 3
HRH Princess Michael of Kent – 1

HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 0
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 0

HRH The Duchess of Kent – 0

Year to date total – 1037 (985 – up 52)

77.0% of those engagements being carried out by The Queen, her children and their spouses – down.
48.0% done by the main line (The Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Duke of Cambridge, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry) – down.
17.7% of all engagements are being done by those over 85 – down.
29.9% done by those 70 and above – up.
72.3% are being done by those over 60 – up.
43.8% were done by those in their 60s – down.
55.4% were done by those over retirement age – up.


Days on which official engagements were undertaken to the 23rd April, 2015

HM The Queen – 42

There is nothing from 3rd to 9th but that was Easter so wouldn't expect anything for 3rd, 4th or 5th. (3rd Good Friday, 4th Easter Saturday, 5th Easter Day).


6th was Harry's arrival in Australia and his visit to the War Memorial and that isn't on the British monarchy website at all.


The next entry after the 2nd is the 10th when Edward did something.

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.

FAILURE of British Monarchy Website to UPDATE CC

The weekly failure of the British Monarchy website: Nothing for this week.

They still have no entry for the 6th April– the day that Harry arrived in Australia and visited the Australian War Memorial.

Weekly update to 7th May, 2015

Unlike last week which was very busy this was a very quiet week. It should be noted that Harry’s events in Sydney on 7th May are NOT mentioned in the CC so it is clear that HM doesn’t regard Harry’s events in Australia as official events. That would also explain why there is nothing in the CC for the 6th April.

I didn’t include Kate giving birth as an official engagement even though it was in the CC – but then so are the anniversaries of the birthdays of the senior members of the BRF along with changes to Ladies-in-Waiting.

There are now four members of the family who have done over 100 engagements for the year with The Earl of Wessex joining The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Princess Royal. Edward’s trip to America during this past week helping his numbers of course. This past week was a rarity with Anne undertaking no official duties.

HM The Queen - 124 (123 – up 1 – 10.2%)
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh - 79 (76 – up 3 – 6.5%)
HRH The Prince of Wales – 190 (182 – up 8 – 15.7%)
HRH The Duchess of Cornwall – 77 – (75 – up 2 – 6.4%)
HRH The Duke of Cambridge - 48 (48 – no change – 4.0%)
HRH The Duchess of Cambridge – 23 (23 – no change – 1.9%)
HRH Prince Henry of Wales - 21 (21 – no change – 1.7%)
HRH The Duke of York – 80 (78 – up 2 – 6.6%)
HRH Princess Beatrice of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH Princess Eugenie of York – 0 (0 – no change – 0%)
HRH The Earl of Wessex - 110 (96 – up 14 – 9.1%)
HRH The Countess of Wessex - 53 (53 – no change – 4.4%)
HRH The Princess Royal - 186 (186 – no change – 15.3%)
Vice-Admiral Tim Laurence - 13 (13 – no change – 1.1%

HRH The Duchess of Gloucester - 39 (37 – up 2 – 3.2%)
HRH The Duke of Kent – 62 (61 – up 1 – 5.1%)
HRH The Duchess of Kent - 0 (0 – no change – 0% - accompanied – 0)
HRH Prince Michael of Kent – 5 (5 – no change – 0.4%)
HRH Princess Michael of Kent - 1 (1 – no change – 0.1%)
HRH Princess Alexandra - 22 (20 – up 2 – 1.8%)

The weekly failure of the British Monarchy website: There are no entries for the 4th and 5th May - which could easily mean that there were no engagements on those days.
