So this didn’t exactly work out too well last year, as my totals were much different than others, but I’m going to try this again in 2015 and hope I get a better result. I will be trying a new system.
For now, I’m going to list all official appearances in chronological order and then have letter attached to designate which kind of appearance it was. Types of appearances:
A – Royal Family Appearances in the UK (7, 5)
B – Royal Duty Appearances in the UK (39, 36)
C – Charity Appearances in the UK (for her patronages) (9)
D – No Press Appearances in the UK (11)
E – Foreign Appearances (0)
Non-official appearances, shopping trips, and vacations and whatnot, will get their own list.
Total number of days worked: 41
Total number of engagements: 66
Sporting events that I’m not counting as official (Wimbledon, Rugby): 3
Princess Charlotte appearances: 2
Number of days worked minus sports and Char events: 36
