Anne, who has a reputation for hard work, worked 114 days and was followed by the Prince of Wales with 93 and Duke of York who notched up 71.

At the bottom of the table was the Duchess of Cambridge with 39 days, and the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry both with 46.


The figures were compiled by the Press Association from the Court Circular, the official listings of royal events.

The research showed the Queen was closely followed by the Duchess of Cornwall with 51, Duke of Edinburgh with 52 and Earl of Wessex with 55.

William, Kate and Harry will be carrying out a string of royal engagements next week with the Duke celebrating England’s under-20 World Cup football champions, while Harry will meet trainee coaches at Manchester City Football Club’s ground.

The future king will welcome England’s young footballers to Kensington Palace next Thursday – the first national team to win a football World Cup since Sir Alf Ramsey’s team beat West Germany in 1966.

Harry will spend the day in Manchester next Monday when he will visit Manchester City’s ground to drop in on a Coach Core training session putting a group of apprentices through their paces.

He will also make a return visit to the city’s Canada Street where, with William in 2015, he joined the team from the BBC’s DIY SOS programme who created a Walking With The Wounded hub for ex-service personnel and renovated homes.
