          How We Keep Count of Engagements
          Prince Harry's Patronages


          1. Didn't he also complete a day of engagements in Nottingham on February 1st?

          2. On February 21st Prince Harry attended three engagements. WWTW at Gateshead Council, a Heads Together training day at Quayside and the Virgin Money HQ for a charity day.

            1. We counted the Heads Together training day and visit to Virgin Money HQ as one engagement. For more on "How We Keep Count of Engagements" check out the link at the bottom of the article.

            2. It was in two different places, with different people, it's in the CC as three engagements so I don't understand...

            3. First off, this isn't a copy of the CC. This is my count. Obviously it's a lot like the CC, but I think the CC has some faults.

              2nd the CC doesn't count anything. It just lists info. It's still up to the person reading it, to decide how to count things.

              For us, two different places or different people doesn't automatically mean separate engagements.

              For example the unveiling of the Iraq & Afghanistan Memorial:

              For Harry, he attended the service, then the reception afterwards. I wouldn't count something like that as 2 engagements. I counted that as 1. It really was the same event, just in two different places. But if you were looking at the CC, and counting everything little thing as a separate engagement you might get 2.

              You might even get 4 engagements for the Queen:
              1) Service at Horse Guard
              2) Drove to Richmond Terrace and were received by the Marshal of the Royal Air Force the Lord Stirrup KG
              3) Walked to Victoria Embankment Gardens and met Memorial Trustees
              4) Unveiled memorial.

              Or you might count it as 1 engagement. Or 2 seeing as how the Queen and Philip were the only Royals at the actual unveiling of the memorial. That was sort of a separate thing that was shown on the screen at Horse Guard Parade for people who had attended the service.

              I saw the Feb 21st Heads Together stuff as kind of like the service and reception. First they did some training, then they headed to an reception. So the fact that it was 2 places here didn’t mean 2 engagements.

              As for the different people, I don't really see 2+ organization working together on a project as "different people,” such that they should be separate engagements. We very often see engagements and events with multiple organizations.

              At the training day you had the Head's Together Runners, who are training for the London Marathon. Head’s Together is the official charity of the London Marathon which is run by Virign Money.

              Head's Together is an organization made up of a number of mental health charities. And Virgin Money is one of the official partners of Heads Together.
              So these runners often represent both an individual charity (Mind, Place2BE, etc.) as well as the umbrella org Heads Together. And since Heads Together is the Marathon’s official charity and Virgin Money is one of the official partners of Heads Together, the runners sort of represents Virign Money as well.

              At Virgin Money HQ, they were holding an event for staff, runners, and representatives from Heads Together's charity partners. So it actually had a lot of people from the training day.

              Given that Virgin Money is part of Head’s Together, and Head’s together is part of the Marathon that Virgin Money is running, I don't really see them as “different people.” So I wouldn’t count that as two engagements.

          3. The Sentebale Polo Cup were two seperate engagements in two seperate places. The polo game and later the dinner at a hotel. He also had seven engagements in Sydney on the first day, not just two.

            1. Two separate places doesn't equal two different engagements for me. It was all sort of the same event. It was a polo match with a reception for that polo match after. Sometimes the receptions and match are at the same place, sometimes they are not.

              I haven't seen the CC for the 7th, it isn't updated on Royal.UK yet. So will look at that closely when updated. But everything about the launch of Invictus 2018 is one engagement in my book. Sometimes you do different things in an engagement, have to travel to different places.
