Queen’s royal schedule: FOUR senior royals picked to aid Queen this autumn – details

238

THE QUEEN will be straight back to work after her Balmoral break ends this autumn. And with details of the monarch’s October schedule released, it seems four senior royals have been chosen to help the Queen with a string of important engagements.

Every year, the Queen spends her summer in the Scottish Highlands at her Balmoral estate. The monarch is thought to spend her well-earned break horse-riding and receiving visitors, including the Prime Minister and members of the Royal Family. But when summer is over, the Queen returns to the hustle and bustle of her London residence, Buckingham Palace, to complete her royal duties.

And for three major events, four of the senior working members of the Royal Family have been selected to help the Queen with her duties.

On October 2, 2021, the Queen will be accompanied by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, for the Opening Ceremony to mark the Sixth Session of the Scottish Parliament.

As the event is in Scotland, Charles and Camilla are known by their Scottish titles as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay.The Queen

Then on October 7, Prince Edward has been chosen to accompany the monarch at the launch of The Queen’s Baton Relay for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The launch will take place from the forecourt of Buckingham Palace.

And on October 12, it is Princess Anne who will attend a Service of Thanksgiving with the Queen in London.

The Service of Thanksgiving will mark the Centenary of the Royal British Legion and will take place at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen has several members of her family to assist her with royal duties and engagements.

Although there are many members of the Royal Family, there are only a small number of senior working royals.

As heir apparent, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are both considered senior working members of the Royal Family.

The Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, also complete royal engagements on behalf of the Crown.

And the Queen’s only daughter Princess Anne is also considered a senior working royal.

Princess Anne and Prince Charles are often considered the Royal Family’s hardest workers in terms of the number of royal engagements they complete every year.

In 2020, Princess Anne took the top spot as she attended 148 official engagements last year despite the disruption caused by coronavirus lockdowns.

She told Vanity Fair: “I don’t think retirement is quite the same [for me].

“Most people would say we’re very lucky not to be in that situation because you wouldn’t want to just stop.”

In 2019, Prince Charles was crowned the hardest working royal after attending 521 engagements.
