The Duke of Cambridge 2020 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 2020, I counted that The Duke of Cambridge undertook 186 engagements. Note: Prince William did not travel abroad this year and for obvious reasons his count is a little lower than usual. Full breakdown below
