Here are some lovely photos captions from Lilibet’s first birthday, which took place on the 4th of in Windsor, England. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited the UK for Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee celebration, coincidentally their daughter’s birthday fell during the jubilee weekend.
The Duke of Duchess of Sussex hosted a few friends to the birthday party.
Meghan and Harry’s childhood friend Misan Harriman shared some photos from the birthday with the caption: “It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around.”
This marks it the second time ever that Lilibet’s photo has been shared publicly, the first being in December when the family released their Christmas card.
Posting the the news on Twitter, Royal expert Omid Scobie disclosed that the event had been attended only by close friends and family. He said: “For Lilibet’s first birthday, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan invited close friends and family for an ‘intimate backyard picnic’ at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor on Saturday.
“Claire Ptak (who made the couple’s 2018 wedding cake) baked a special order for the party.
“A spokesperson tells me Harry and Meghan ‘remain incredibly touched by the countless birthday wishes for their daughter’ and have also been ‘amazed’ to learn that Sussex supporters around the world have made donations amounting to over $100K in Lilibet’s honor.”
