Rules for Counting Engagements
Counting engagements in the Court Circular is not an exact science, and each person counts engagements differently. I count engagements using the following rules:
♦ Each new location is a new engagement. If there are multiple lines for one location I count that as only one engagement as there was only one location (for example, arriving and being shown around a location will be listed on two lines for The Queen, but I count that as only one engagement).
♦ I do not count weddings, births, baptisms, or birthdays as engagements, even though they are listed in the Court Circular.
♦ I do not count “was represented by” as an engagement, even though it is listed in the Court Circular, as the royal didn’t actually attend the event.
♦ For engagements during the fiancé period, I treat them as a “pictures or it didn’t happen” situation as the royal is not listed in the Court Circular during this time, and I cannot be sure the royal attended the event unless there are photos of their attendance.
