There are many things that are part of their jobs and state visits are just one of them. What's the point of having a large royal family if they can't cover for each other. Here in Sweden for instance the kings sister Christina often takes part in royal functions and she's not even officially part of the royal house. The same goes for Astrid in Norway.

This means that Prince Andrew should not be referred to as the fifth wheel. He is not an unnecessary extra in this case. I am very very far from being Prince Andrew's fan, but he is criticised by royal watchers for no reason at all.

And yet they miss quite a number of them - last year at this time as well there was a State Visit that they missed and earlier last year the most senior royal to attend the State Visit was Edward (besides the Queen and Philip).

Meeting European Heads of Mission is also an important role for the Head of State but this year it was done by Charles in Scotland - why - because it was on the same day. Surely that 'receiving' should have been done by The Queen?

The royal family organise their schedules months in advance so The Queen knew who was available for the State Visit and who she wanted or needed to be in attendance. She approved Camilla putting her son's book launch first and sent her eldest son and heir to Scotland to carry out duties there.

State Visits are NOT part of the job description of the heir to the throne at all given the recent evidence in the UK.
