I would advice Their Royal Highnesses to accept a roll of wonderful woven silk, or a nice bottle of Muscat wine, or an exclusive handmade parasol, but not those ostentatious, opulent and even provocative jewels which, so to see, are piled in the vaults and remain in the cassettes.
This is not really the place for your political views.

No I am not back but can anyone confirm if this tour has ended. The CC has them doing engagements on the 5th and 6th and then nothing for the 7th or 8th. There is nothing for the 7th at all but Anne did things on the 8th and no one else.

I haven't seen any reports of the tour ending but the CC isn't putting up their engagements there anymore so the only conclusion I can reach is that the tour has ended early for some reason - Harry's engagement announcement perhaps???

That was the intention - true - but the CC has stopped reporting their official engagements on the 6th so my question was - did the tour end for some reason so that the engagements planned for the 7th to the 11th have been cancelled. They planned over 50 engagements during the week but only about 20 have been reported on the CC - those of the 5th and 6th.

As the CC is up for the 8th - with Anne undertaking two engagements - and no one else doing anything official The Queen obviously didn't regard whatever they were doing on the 7th and 8th - if they did anything - as official as she has the final say as to what goes into the CC.

That is the reason for my question.

The tour didn’t end, it’s all going as planed. The CC has been having some issues the last few days, I’ve noticed they’ve posted things before they happened and have been correcting and adding things later.
For example, Sophie also had engagements on the 7th and there is nothing in the CC yet.

The photo caption might lead one to believe guarding the Duchess was a feat on par with conquering Everest.

This may be too late to help but there were events on every except 9th November which was designated a rest day. They carried out a number of engagements on 10 and 11 and arrived home on the evening of the 11th.

Charles carried out over 40 engagements and Camilla over 30. They did a number of separate events.
