Most of the King's Royal appearances took place prior to his mother Queen Elizabeth II's death in September when the Prince of Wales was his title.

The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward, followed his siblings in third place with 143 Royal engagements.

Their sibling, Prince Andrew has been largely absent from public life after he was officially stripped of His Royal Highness title in January 2022.

The Duke of York later settled with Virginia Giuffre out of court for an undisclosed sum which was estimated to be as much as £12 million. 

Meanwhile, Princess Anne attended an impressive 30 engagements in November alone and even managed to visit the Falkland Islands.

The research also reported that William, the Prince of Wales, attended 126 engagements.
