                      European Royal attendance at Foreign Royal Events

                      This chart looks at royal attendance from the 10 Current European Monarchies at various royal events over the last few years. I've only included events with large foreign royal attendance, where it is likely that all the European Monarchies were invited. 

                      (Note: For state occasions, if a Monarchy is unable to send a royal to the event, the country is usually represented by their ambassador.)

                      Each event is linked to the blog post about that event, which lists the royals that attended.

                      Consecutive Days on Multiple UK Front Pages

                      There have been a number of royal stories in recent years that have appeared on the front pages of multiple UK Newspapers for consecutive days. This list only includes the more notable streaks, that I happened to track at the time. 

                      While there may be an initial story that kicks off the media frenzy, we continue counting until that person/couple is no longer mentioned on multiple UK front pages for a day. We count a front page if the person is either mentioned by name, nickname, or appears in a photo. 

                      For each event in the table below, the streak was broken by another story that dominated the headlines and appears on multiple UK Front Pages, usually for multiples days.

                      Last Day = The last day the story appeared on multiple front pages. However, that is not usually the end of the media coverage. 

                      *It was almost a 15-day streak. Prince Andrew's 2019 streak ended when he only appeared on 1 front page on November 28th as papers were dominated by UK Election news. However, he then appeared on 2 front pages the next day (29th). Before the headlines were dominated on the 30th by the London Bridge Terror Attack.

                                          Wimbledon 2021 - Royal Attendance

                                          Royal attendance is not usually announced in advance (except for those attending in an official capacity).  But look out for: 

                                          President/Patron: Duke of Kent (President of Wimbledon), Duchess of Gloucester (Honorary President of LTA), & Duchess Kate (Patron of Wimbledon & LTA) 
                                          Other Royals: Camilla, Wessexs, Yorks, Prince & Princess Micheal of Kent, etc.  
                                          Foreign Royals: (varies each year) 
                                          Extended Family: Phillips/Tindalls, The Kent & Gloucester's children, Middletons/ Matthews, Camilla's sister, etc.

                                          The Royals almost always sit in the Royal Box at Centre Court. The day's matches in the Centre Court usually begin at 1 PM. We may not see a royal attend every day. Expect higher attendance during the 2nd week.
