For the first time ever, Prince Charles has overtaken his sister Princess Anne to become Britain’s hardest working Royal. Prince Charles notched up over 560 official engagements, carrying out more official duties than any other senior member of the Royal family. Princess Anne, (better known as the Princess Royal), only carried out 534 official engagements last year, according to the results of a recent survey. However Princess Anne was still as hardworking as ever, going out and about to meet members of the public. Her events were mainly comprised of opening ceremonies, official visits and other engagements, whilst Prince Charles carried out more meetings, audiences and investitures, no doubt in preparation for when he becomes King.
Despite both being in their eighties, the Queen and Prince Philip are still as busy and hardworking as ever and show no signs of slowing down. The Queen carried out 417 official engagements last year, whilst Prince Philip carried out 354. By contrast Princes William and Harry only managed to carry out a meagre 41 official engagements between them.
