Question

during the fiscal year 200910,
how many visits were made to your area by the core royal family (Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry) and how much did these visits cost your council?

Answer

There was one visit by the core royal family to Charnwood in 2009/10.
The council did not pay for security or entertainments for the Royal visits, the only costs incurred to the council were for the Mayor of Charnwood’s attendance at the engagement, and these costs (liaising with the organisers, fuel for the Mayor's car and officer attendance with the Mayor) are all part of the day to day operational costs of the Civic Officer.
