  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a new photo of their daughter Lilibet. 
  • The picture was taken at Lilibet’s first birthday party at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, UK. 
  • The Queen met her great-granddaughter for the first time last week during the Platinum Jubilee.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a new picture of their daughter Lilibet, which shows that she has her father’s signature red hair, just like her older brother Archie.

Harry and Markle celebrated their daughter’s 1st birthday on Saturday amid Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 

Photographer Misan Harriman shared the photo on Instagram on Monday and said Lilibet’s birthday was “joy and face painting all around.”

The picture shows Lilibet smiling in the grass at Frogmore Cottage, where Prince Harry and Markle lived before they moved to Montecito, California, after stepping back from the royal family in January 2020. 

A spokesperson for the Suss3xes told Page Six that Lilibet’s birthday party was a “casual, intimate backyard picnic” for “close friends and family.” 

The outlet also reported that Lilibet’s birthday cake was made by Claire Ptak, who made the Duke and Duchess of Suss3x’s wedding cake in 2018. 

Last week marked the first time that the Queen met her great-granddaughter.

According to Page Six, the Queen also saw Lilibet at Windsor Castle before her birthday party on Saturday. The outlet claims that Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their three children, were invited to the party but did not attend because of the brothers’ strained relationship. Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Suss3x, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.

The royal family still took to social media to send happy birthday messages to Lilibet on Saturday.

Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California. Her name is a tribute to the Queen’s family nickname, which biographer William Shawcross wrote was coined by Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather King George V. Lilibet’s middle name, Diana, came from her paternal grandmother — the late Princess Diana.

Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl reported last year that Prince Harry sought the queen’s “blessing” to name his daughter after her.

Both Lilibet and her older brother Archie were not seen at any of the public Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
