I only saw the pictures from the one visit on Aug 1st to the brewery, I'm not aware of any further engagements this week.

In regards to the policy about not traveling from an official engagement to a holiday, I guess my mistake is I think about it as an ordinary citizen. Where it's not about how things appear, but what is actually documented as an expense and will be reviewed by an accountant or auditor.

The brewery visit was the 1st August along with two other visits - a restaurant and a school - along with a meeting. All were in Scotland I assume as the place of the meeting isn't mentioned.

Court Circular - 1st August

The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay this morning visited Captain's Galley Seafood Restaurant, the Harbour, Scrabster, and was received by Mr. William Watt (Deputy Lieutenant of Caithness).
His Royal Highness this afternoon visited Caithness Artists' Annual Exhibition, Thurso High School, Ormlie Road, Thurso, Caithness.
The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay afterwards visited John o'Groats Brewery, the Old Fire Station, John o'Groats, Caithness.
His Royal Highness, Patron, the North Highland Initiative, later held a Meeting.

The 2nd August isn't up on the online CC yet.

^^Oh, those were the other visits, thanks. Clearly the more established CC is more reliable than the Clarence House Twitter feed that only has info about the brewery visit on Aug 1st.

The CC is the 'official record' of the engagements of the BRF. What they may send out via twitter or other forms is not complete - it is the same as the Future Engagements which don't include the Wales or York families at all unless they are going with other family members. The Cambridge's announce engagements via their twitter rather than through the official monarchy page.

The CC is the best place, particularly the print versions, to get the full list of engagements. The twitter is really what the royal wishes to put out while the CC is the monarch's approved listing.

DeeT, another good place to find out all the information that the Court Circular has posted as official engagements is right here on TRF. Our Iluvbertie does an intensive job of compiling all the engagements, where they were, what kind of engagements they were and keeps a running tally on all the numbers. Check it out.

Actually, Charles does not own any of this. The Duchy of Cornwall does. When Charles becomes king and William becomes The Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge, it will be William that benefits from the Duchy. Eventually it will all be passed on to George as the eldest son and heir of William.

Charles has done a remarkable job with the Duchy of Cornwall with some very intelligent business acumen to strengthen and fortify the Duchy for generations to come.

Camilla at 70: a woman transformed
Two decades ago she was a villified royal mistress, today the Duchess of Cornwall is accepted as the most senior female royal after the Queen

What an absolutely wonderful article. This is the kind of thing that I wish more publications would do and focus on. The "real" Camilla as she is now and sees her for who she is now rather than keeping her stuck in a drama of so many years ago.

Agreed. While, like many others I was not initially a fan of Camilla, I have grown to respect and admire her. She clearly loves Prince Charles to have gone through all that she has - I honestly can't imagine that she is in the position in which she finds herself, for any personal gain or fame.
Let's hope that Diana can be remembered and commemorated appropriately this year, for the good that she also did, without the 'mud-slinging' at Camilla.
Let him/her who is without sin and all that.....

The Private Secretary to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, Mark Leishman, has resigned. He became Private Secretary in 2009 and has worked for Clarence House since 2003.

The only thing we will ever agree on Nico.

Not a happy work place wonder if they are leaving or being pushed out.

I think something is going on in the sense the various households are being 'tweaked' to accommodate The Duke of Edinburgh's retirement and the Cambridges move to London but I think it's well organised behind the scenes.

The press wants us to assume chaos but the BRF is nothing if not well prepared.

I think it's just the press was caught off guard on all the staff changes.

What is the press being blamed for ? They are reporting the amount of staff leaving. I can't see anything wrong in reporting that. I would like to know why but I'm not saying it's chaos. But something is happening

There's nothing to blame the press on. I just think they were caught off guard with so many departures all at once. Some they knew were leaving, but some they didn't expect to go. I think it's down to the shift in the younger royals taking on full-time roles. New management to take over.

It is rare for the BRF to ever experience more than one or two staff leaving at a time - not this wholesale turnover. That does point to something more happening than 'business as usual' which does include the normal procedure of younger royals taking up the roles of retiring royals.
