The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released a new portrait of baby Lilibet in honour of her first birthday on Saturday 4 June.
In the adorable, candid shot, snapped by close family friend Misan Harriman during her birthday party last weekend, Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor smiles in a pale blue frock while sitting in a grassy field. A matching blue ribbon headband adorns her fiery red hair—a trait clearly passed on from dad Harry.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as their three-year-old son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, celebrated Lili's first birthday while the family of four was in the UK for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.
A spokesperson confirmed to BAZAAR.com that the Sussexes invited close friends and family for a casual and intimate garden picnic held at Frogmore Cottage. Violet bakery's Claire Ptak, who produced Harry and Meghan's 2018 wedding cake, created a custom cake for the special day.
Harry and Meghan also expressed their gratitude to hear that more than $100,000 in donations were made to World Central Kitchen from people around the globe in honour of Lili's milestone, the Sussex spokesperson added. WCK, an organisation close to the Sussexes' hearts, responds to humanitarian, climate, and community crises by providing meals to those in need. Most recently, the charity operated in Uvalde, Texas, in the aftermath of the elementary school shooting and in Ukraine after Russia launched a military invasion.
Over the weekend, members of the royal family shared sweet birthday tributes to baby Lili, including her namesake, Queen Elizabeth, as well as Prince William and Kate, and Prince Charles and Camilla.
