From the outside looking in, it may seem like the members of the royal family don't really do much except smile and wave. But this isn't the case.

Each person in the family has specific royal duties to perform. They attend engagements where they serve as representatives of Britain and foster international relationships in the process.

The number of events they attend is usually counted and as far as this year goes, the Duchess of Sussex isn't looking too good in the rankings.

The UK Express recently shared a list some of the top royals and how many engagements they have attended so far this year.

Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth's daughter, came out on top with a whopping 137 engagements. On the other hand, Meghan brought in the rear with only 25 engagements so far this year.

Of course, a few months into the year, the Duchess of Sussex began her maternity leave around the time baby Archie was born. So it's understandable that she wasn't as busy as she should have been.

Kate Middleton did not do so well either as she ranked in at number 12, just three spots above Meghan. And showing that she's a hard worker at 93, Queen Elizabeth II came in third with 122 engagements this year.

As for the royal men, Prince Charles came in second with 131 engagements. Prince Harry was slightly higher than his brother Prince William by three spots.

Some royal fans have made comments on this ranking and people had a few different things to say.

Well done to all the royals, though. While they may lead fancy lifestyles, they do work really hard to achieve it.
