That's Philip, Charles, and Camilla. On the other hand:

The sovereign attends the meeting, though his or her place may be taken by two or more Counsellors of State. Under the Regency Acts 1937 to 1953, Counsellors of State may be chosen from among the sovereign's spouse and the four individuals next in the line of succession who are over 21 years of age (18 for the heir to the throne).
That's Philip, Charles, William, Harry, and Andrew.

Has he actually done anything? No idea.
