Queen Elizabeth II is known as one of the hardest working monarch's England has ever had, with the 93-year-old wielding an impressive legacy. This includes the immense amount of royal engagements she undertakes, with the Court Circular confirming Her Majesty has completed a whopping 122 official engagements this year.
After the analysis of each royal family member's engagements was released by Court Circular, fans remarked on the lack of royal duties the Duke of Cambridge is currently undertaking, with the low number reportedly worrying the Queen.

According to Dermot Morrah who wrote Illustrated Story of Twenty-one Years in the Life of the Heir Presumptive, the Queen has set such an impressively high standard of work that it has William worried.

Mr Morrah wrote: “She is a hard worker… She hates to leave any task unfinished or to abandon any problem until she has mastered it.
“She is always ready to take great trouble over small things, especially when she suspects that things which are small to her may be of great importance to humbler people.”

Unfortunately for the Royal Family, English Anti-monarchy group 'Republic' highlighted Prince William's seeming lack of commitment, labelling Prince William a 'disinterested' heir apparent.
“How can the monarchy survive when the younger generation can’t be bothered to do even the light workload of their parents?", the post began.
“Their hours include watching sports matches and theatre.
“But the real question these figures raise is does William want to be king?
“Or is he just doing the bare minimum to keep his family happy in the hope he can have his cake and eat it?”
