She is human and can also be flawed. Nothing is perfect and this is far from it. The CC makes no sense a lot of the time. You especially see it on royal tours and how things are counted or not. I mean heck the website that represents this family is in major need of an update as outdated info is still all over it.

We do not know what the engagement with Richard Curtis was. Am I right in speculating that there has been no confirmation that when the Cambridge's received Richard Curtis, it was only to record the audio?

I agree. The CC entry suggests the Cambridges had a formal meeting with Mr Curtis in addition to recording the audio.

I have recently seen articles comparing the number of days Camilla has worked with the number of engagements the Queen has done to put down Camilla. The 'official' count that comes out at the end of each year is, like mine, simply done by a fan and has nothing official about it.

Two royals can attend the same event - for one it is an official event while for the other it isn't e.g. earlier this year there was an official event at the National Gallery for Catherine. Beatrice was also there but she wasn't there officially and so not in the CC.

The Queen makes the decision. If you think it should be done better - write and tell her.

What goes into the CC also changes over time e.g. in 1997 pretty well every time a royal went overseas (and they seem to have done a lot more then than they do now) there was an official farewell at the airport with the Ambassador/High Commissioner of the country/ies to be visited present to 'farewell' the royals. The Queen and Philip were also officially welcomed home. Either that no longer happens or if it does it is no longer recorded.
I know this is your style and manner, but I have been a royal watcher for many, many years so yes, I actually DO know how this all works officially so the unnecessary explanation isn't helpful.

My point about the system (different people counting different things in different ways with no real official metric) being flawed and lacking in transparency still stands.

I thought, it was interesting, since I am not an expert. So, the explanation was not in vain!
