Places like that take a whole lot of garbage, toss it into a pot and mix it with a whole lot of venom and then Dish it out to the public as fact.

I might invest in the subscription for a year but not until I have paid off my mortgage as in the meantime my budget won't stretch that far.
The Times online facility only goes back as far as 2000.

If anyone is still interested in this please let me know. I would like to swap information. Especially on the early years. I have access to the Court Circular including the 80s as well as many scrapbooks and clippings.

That is wonderful, jackieo, and I'm sure the 1980's and '90's CC records would be an enormous help to Iluvbertie and others who collate Royal engagements here. I used to have lots of magazines and clippings on Diana but most of them got thrown out over the years, so good on you for keeping yours.

I would love the CC records to add to my collection for engagements if possible. Maybe we should communicate via PM.

Jackieo1600 I have tons of engagements and dates. I am currently doing this on Pinterest year by year with the engagements I have. Unfortunately I live in the States and didn't have access to the court circulars, just did a lot by Majesty and Royalty magazines and other sources. Please feel free to message me and maybe we can get them all. My dream at one time was to have every picture of every engagement, but I don't know if that is even possible!

You won't get pictures of every engagement simply because they don't release them of things like 'meetings' or 'receiveds'.

Who would be interested in seeing a group of people sitting around a table talking about something - once or twice yes but 100s of them - no. All royals do a number of these of things.

The 'out of palace' engagements are the ones where photos would be possible.

Not even all the receptions a royal attends have photos released.

A full copy of the CC from 1981 to her leaving the royal family when her official engagements would have stopped being recorded is the only way to do a full count and the online CC only goes back to 1997.

When I retire I intend on visiting a few places where I know they had the CC going back to the beginning on micro-fiche to find out if they digitised the entire copies of The Times or whether they only did selected bits. If they digitised it then I will attempt to do a full count for Diana - along with the rest of the BRF since WWII.
