There are certain patterns to royal diaries, the main one being that Wednesdays and Thursdays are particularly busy day – like you, the royals are quickly getting things done before Friday.

There are a few Remembrance services on the cards this week alongside the usual patronage duties. The Earl of Wessex is out in force to celebrate the Duke of Edinburgh Awards' diamond anniversary and William, the Duke of Cambridge, is at the Evening Standand's Theatre Awards.

Let's not forget the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are in the UAE on a private visit.
