I have notised that all that say that Frederik is lazy are people outside Denmark. I totally disagree with you that he is lazy. He is doing his duty perfect and i remember the queen said that she would give Frederik some space when he got children because she missed so much of Joachim and Frederiks childhood when she became queen, and she will not let that happen to her children.

I don't think he does have a non-royal job but I could be wrong.

He is anti-conformist and lover of finery.

How can we know this? We just can compare their public visits isn't??What are our royals doing when they are at home? Does their staff do everything for them?

It's really hard for me to judge the "laziness" of certain royals, as I live in the US and I don't get to see much media coverage of them.
But can I throw a vote in for Laurent too? And Philippe? I don't see them doing much. Mathilde works very hard as far as I can see but I don't usually notice Philippe with her. I could be wrong. Laurent does have an excuse now, with the birth of his twins of course.....

Don't forget that for each of these engagements there would need to be briefings about the people to be met and the work of the organisation etc. This is behinds the scene work that isn't counted in the number of engagements but is the preparation needed to do the engagement properly.

And others like Charles and Camilla that are out there almost everyday at functions for their people. In your mind who is the laziest royal?

Could you tell me why you say they are lazy?

Charles carried out 501 engagements in 2005 - many with Camilla. Camilla has been royal for less than a year and has done many engagements as well by going with Charles. (Remember when they count Philip's they include those in which he accompanies the Queen and therefore it is only right that Camilla accompanying Charles is included in her count).

Andrew did even more.

How many do you think they need to be doing in order to not be classed as lazy?

As they are averaging about 1.5 engagements per day - some taking many hours not including the hours needed in preparation and follow-up - I would hardly describe any of them as lazy.

And also realize that the original question posed was "In your mind, who is the laziest royal?" For most of us these are opinions, and opinions are hard to change, even with presentation of solid fact. :)

She does.

If people want to know what lazy is, check out Prince William. You could light a fire under his spoiled behind and he still wouldn't work.

Prince William doesn't even average that in a MONTH, apparently. He's getting a free ride because his Mommy was Diana. Enough. :)
