Tim O'Donovan's numbers have been published...https://twitter.com/Majes...tatus/1344946442029379584
Here's a link to my post on 2018 and 2019...https://royaldish.com/ind...595.msg1251017#msg1251017
D-Domestic, I-International, T-Total (percentage as compared to 2020...just for fun and to see how each royal was limited)
Charles: D-283, I-18, T-301 (57.8% vs 2019's total of 521)
Anne: D-233, I-0, T-233 (46% vs 2019's total of 521)
William: D-149, I-4, T-154 (70% vs 2019's total of 220)
Sophie: D-128, I-26, T-154 (65.3% vs 2019's total of 236)
The Queen: D-133, I-0, T-133 (45.1% vs 2019's total of 295)
Edward Wessex: D-114, I-15, T-129 (41.9% vs 2019's total of 308)
Camilla: D-115, I-5, T-120 (53.6% vs 2019's total of 224)
Kate: D-104, I-4, T-108 (85.7% vs 2019's total of 126)
Richard: D-79, I-1, T-80 (35.4% vs 2019's total of 226)
Edward Kent: D-64, I-4, T-68 (33.5% vs 2019's total of 203)
Birgitte: D-46, I-2, T-48 (57.1% vs 2019's total of 84)
Alexandra: D-13, I-0, T-13 (21.7% vs 2019's total of 60)
One thing did jump out at me when I was looking at the numbers...William and Kate's international number seems off as their Ireland visit in March was 12 engagements not 4. I'm going to assume that these were left off (rather than placed somewhere else) and correct their number.
William: D-149, I-12, T-161 (73.1% vs 2019's total of 220)
Kate: D-104, I-12, T-116 (92.1% vs 2019's total of 126)
I do find it very interesting that Kate's numbers were nearly identical to 2019. I looked at the CC and it recorded 12 meeting for her Early Years Project in 2020 (vs only recording 4 in 2019)...I think someone heard my wish about including all meetings on the CC. IMO the limited effect is most likely due to a combination of...lower numbers from the get go, better recording of meetings, and the your generation adapting more quickly to using technology during lockdown. Well done this year...as I said on another thread the test will be 2022 and 2023 on. Fingers crossed that they'll exceed my expectations.
I'm also hoping that the cousins are being given a blessing to do as they feel able...what with the clear focus on the slimmed down core group it's nice to see zero pressure on the cousins. Given their ages, health problems (Alexandra and Edward Kent), and relative unimportance to the succession it's nice to think the the BRF is setting them up for a peaceful and dignified retirement.
