Princess Anne has been named this year's hardest working royal, followed closely by her Prince Charles as the Royal Family returned to a more normal schedule after 2020.
The Princess Royal, 71, took the crown with 387 official engagements in 2021, just two ahead of Charles, 73, who carried out 385.
The siblings have stepped up to take on greater responsibility in recent years, as the Queen and the late Duke of Edinburgh started to scale back their work.
At the age of 95, the Queen still managed 184 engagements, the majority of which were carried out by phone or video link, allowing the Queen to remain ensconced in Windsor Castle for much of the year.

The figure is just shy of the 295 engagements she carried out in 2019, proving the monarch's continued commitment to her role, despite her advancing years and deep personal loss following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh in April.
