Prince Charles has made a sweet gesture to help his strained relationship with son Harry and his wife Meghan Markle by including them in the official pictures of the Queen’s Jubilee.

From his official presence on social media, the Prince of Wales, posted nine photos of the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral in Westminster on Friday.

The Clarence House page, which is the official instagram account of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, uploaded the images with the message: “Thank you, Your Majesty, for 70 years of unwavering and dedicated service.

“The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, along with other members of the Royal Family, attended a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Over 400 people were invited to attend in recognition of their contribution to public life at both a community and national level.

“Drawn from all four nations of the United Kingdom, this included NHS and key workers, teaching staff and representatives from the Armed Forces, charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups.”

The first of the nine images was of Prince Charles and Camilla leaving the service, the second was an overhead shot of the couple following Prince William and his wife Kate along the nave of the church.

The third image showed Princess Anne, along with William and Kate singing during one of the hymns, and the fourth is of Prince Edward and his wife Sophie smiling, while the fifth was taken from high up in the church and showed all those who attended.

The sixth was taken at the doors of the cathedral, at the top of the steps and included the Queen’s granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, but it was the seventh that was seen as the most meaningful.

Meghan is turned towards Harry and is smiling broadly, while Harry looks a little more serious.

The last two images shows Prince Andrew’s daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and the other is a wider shot showing the royal family sat at the front of the service.

Their public struggle came to light after Prince Harry married Meghan and the pair decided they wanted to quit the Firm and step down from their roles as working royals.

A summit was held at Sandringham between the Queen, Harry, Charles and William to thrash out a deal – and Harry and Meghan eventually settled in California with young son Archie.

It was then that cracks started to appear in the bond between Harry and his father as well as with his brother William.
