The royals gathered on the second day of the Jubilee to St Paul’s Cathedral for the Service of Thanksgiving.

But the Queen, 96, did not attend – and instead, she is watching the service on television from Windsor Castle.

But images from within show the royal seating plan – with senior working members of the Firm getting prime seats at the front.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, 40, were spotted next to one another in the front row on the left.

ROYAL SHOW

Harry & Meg join largest Royal gathering in YEARS as Queen watches service on TV

Whereas Meghan Markle, 40, and Prince Harry sat on the opposite side, one row behind.

This is because the seating order is determined by working royal status – and Meg and Harry quit their duties in 2020.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also weren’t included in the procession into the Cathedral this morning.

Sitting front and centre was the next in line to the throne, Prince Charles, with his wife Camilla.

Next to Kate sat Princess Anne, with her husband Timothy Laurence.

And on the other side, the Duke of Wessex was accompanied by his wife and two children.

Today’s event included readings, anthems, prayers and congregational hymns – all expressing thanks for the Queen’s reign, faith and service over the last seven decades.

As well as the royals, more than 400 people were invited to the ceremony in recognition of their contribution to public life at both a community and national level.

These are recipients of Honours in the New Year or Birthday Honours list, many for their work throughout the pandemic.

The list includes NHS and key workers, teaching staff, public servants and members of the Armed Forces.

Also in attendance was Boris Johnson, members of the Cabinet and representatives from overseas.

Guests began filling into the cathedral at 11am.

Great Paul, the largest church bell in the country, rung out as they made their way inside after being restored in 2021.

It has been rung on eight occasions since – although this will be its first royal occasion since the big revamp.
