In the photo, it is clear she and her older brother, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, have at least one thing in common, they inherited their father’s red hair. In her gorgeous red locks, Lilibet is rocking a white bow on the side of her head and is seen sitting down in an adorable blue dress.

Lilibet celebrated her first birthday on June 4 in Europe. Lilibet, her brother, and her parents were in England to help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. She is named after her great-grandmother, whose nickname Lilibet was given to her by her beloved late husband, Prince Philip.

According to Today, Harry and Meghan celebrated Lilibet’s first birthday at Frogmore Cottage with a small birthday party. This first-ever public photo was taken there.

Harriman also shared a photo of Meghan holding her little girl alongside her and her two children as well. Meghan looked happy with a fresh face while wearing a long sleeve shirt and slacks.

Archie, unfortunately, wasn’t seen in any of the photos. It’s unclear who was in attendance at the party. However, many of the royal family members, including the Queen, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and Camilla, all publicly wished Lilibet a very happy birthday on social media.

According to the spokesperson for Harry and Meghan, the proud parents were thrilled to learn that “people around the world made donations amounting to over $100,000 to the World Central Kitchen (WCK) in her honor.” It is believed that Harry, Meghan, and their children are now back in California, where they currently reside after stepping down as senior members of the Royal family a few years ago.

Harry and Meghan have not issued any further personal statements regarding the Queen’s Jubilee or their daughter’s birthday celebration.
