Prince Harry and Meghan release first birthday photos of daughter, Lilibet Diana


Jun 7, 2022

Prince Harry and Meghan have shared a first birthday photo of their daughter, Lilibet Diana.

The picture was released after the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations came to a close.

The family wasn’t seen on the Buckingham Palace balcony during the event, after they chose to step away from working royal life and move to California.

The image was taken by photographer Misan Harriman, a friend of the family who also photographed the couple’s pregnancy announcement.

Lilibet’s birthday is on June 4, and it’s reported the portrait was snapped by Harriman during her first birthday party.

Meghan and Harry returned to the UK last week with both children, Archie and Lilibet, for the Jubilee celebrations.

Some media reported the Queen had met Lilibet, whose name is also the Queen’s nickname, for the first time last Thursday but that has yet to be confirmed by the palace or the Sussexes.

The family had already released an image of their daughter for Christmas last year.

Lilibet’s first birthday party has been described as a relaxed picnic that took place at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, featuring a cake by American baker Claire Ptak, who created the wedding cake for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in 2018.

It’s unclear whether Prince William and Catherine and their three children joined in on any of Lilibet’s first birthday celebrations.

While Kensington Palace took to social media to wish Lilibet a happy birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, spent the day of Lilibet’s first birthday in Wales as part of the royal family’s tour for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.

As for who did attend, the guest list reportedly featured a number of other royals including Zara and Mike Tindall and their three children, and Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly, along with their two children.

Archie Harrison’s godfather, Charlie Van Straubenzee, was also reportedly in attendance, in addition to his brother, Tom, who is Princess Charlotte’s godfather.
