The Duke of Cambridge 2019 Engagement Count


Here at Tea Time With The Cambridges, I keep a tally on the amount of engagements that appear in the Court Circular, the official record of The Royal Family’s work, for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. These numbers are mainly only for me to compare as the years go on and they are in no way a measure of all the work the royals do. Many bloggers keep count but everyone does it differently and their own way. For 2019, I counted that The Duke of Cambridge undertook 217 engagements at home and abroad (Switzerland, New Zealand, Pakistan, Kuwait, and Oman). He was just 5 engagements short from beating his all-time record total of 221 in 2018. A full break down of numbers below:

    We have no idea how hard they work. Different kind of job, but it is a job. Hope some day to have a pleasure to meet.

    Merry Christmas
