The King, 74, was the second hardest working member of the Royal Family, totting up 181 engagements.

Anne has often been praised as hardworking, so it’s no surprise to royal watchers that she has taken the top spot, although her brother led the tables in 2019 and 2020, when he was Prince of Wales.

In at third was The Earl of Wessex, after completing 143 engagements, while The Countess of Wessex came in fourth with 138 engagements.

Here’s where other members of the Royal Family ranked:

  • 9th – The Princess of Wales carried out 90 engagements.
  • 10th – The Duke of Kent undertook 78 engagements.⁠
  • 11th – Princess Alexandra carried out 44 engagements.

It’s important to note that the numbers are substantially lower than previous years for all Members of the Royal Family. The Family had to observe royal mourning in September following the death of the Queen in September.
