Under-fire Prince William on 13 royal shifts so far in 2017

By Laura Elston

The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, has carried out royal duties on 13 days so far this year, according to listings in the Court Circular.

William was criticised for missing the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on Monday to go on a "lads-only" skiing trip.

Of the 72 days of 2017 up to March 13, William has carried out royal duties on 13 days, according to the daily record of royal engagements.

His duties included two investitures on behalf of the Queen, and the Iraq and Afghanistan memorial service.

Kate has performed royal duties on 12 days, while Harry - who is also full-time now - did so on 17 days.
