On June 6, Harry and his wife – Meghan Markle published a new photo of her daughter Lilibet on the occasion of her 1 year old birthday. This is the first time the Sussex family has publicly revealed the face of their young daughter.
Before that, baby Lilibet appeared in a Christmas picture with her family last year but only revealed the side angle. The latest photo was taken by photographer Misan Harriman, a close friend of Meghan Markle and her husband.
The photo was taken in the garden of Frogmore Cottage, where the Sussexes and their two children stayed when they returned to the royal family to attend the Platinum ceremony. This is also where Meghan Markle and her husband celebrated their young daughter’s birthday party along with some members of the royal family and close friends.
The picture shows cute, chubby baby Lilibet in a blue dress. The girl has the same striking red hair as her father, Prince Harry. Meanwhile, the features on the child’s face are a perfect copy of Meghan’s mother when she was young.
When comparing Lilibet with the Queen’s one-year-old birthday photo, fans also noticed many similarities. On her first birthday in 1927, the Queen of England was also allowed by her parents to wear a flowing skirt and sit on the doorstep or in a chair. The two photos of Lilibet and the Queen were taken from almost the same angle, giving the viewer a sense of familiarity.
After returning to the royal family with her parents Platinum celebration, Lilibet and brother Archie have not appeared in the media, the two children’s images are kept private. After returning to the US, Meghan and her husband shared the latest photo of their young daughter.
Another black and white photo posted on the media shows Meghan smiling brightly, holding her lovely daughter. Standing next to her is photographer’s wife Misan Harriman and two children. However, baby Archie, the first son of the Sussex family, is not in the picture.
A spokesman for the Sussex family said the couple was “deeply moved” by fans’ birthday wishes for daughter Lilibet. Meghan Markle and her husband also expressed their “surprise” to learn that £79,000 (2.2 billion) had been raised to celebrate her birthday.
The money will go to World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit in partnership with the couple’s Archewell Foundation, a spokesperson said. In addition, Harry and Meghan Markle also shared that Lilibet had the opportunity to meet her relatives on her first trip back to the royal family.
