I like the `divide and rule' (They've already `conquered' after all.  :-)) method
a lot myself.  For instance, having Her Majesty alone at Siege of Troy was no
less an honour than if His Majesty had been there.  As someone who can't/doesn't
get to a lot of events I do appreciate having Their Majesties (or Their
Highnesses) at the ones I do go to, which I can't see happenning if they were
only doing events as a couple.  Particularly when Atlantia can easily have events
at far corners of the Kingdom on the same weekend and one is not obviously more
attended/important than the other.
