It is unclear when the new King received the gift from the Duke of Sussex and the new Prince of Wales, but it comes as a touching tribute that ties the royals together, following the death of the beloved monarch Queen Elizabeth on Thursday.

It’s not the first time that King Charles has paid tribute to the pair. He shared a heartfelt series of photos of himself and his sons to mark Father’s Day earlier this year.

The new monarch also mentioned both of his sons in his first speech to the nation on Friday, saying that he wished to express "love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas".

He continued the speech by referencing the new Prince and Princess of Wales: "With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where vital help can be given."
