Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have released a new photo of their daughter Lilibet, after celebrating her 1st birthday on Saturday at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor in the UK, a spokesperson for the family said.
The couple “remain incredibly touched by the countless birthday wishes for their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor,” the spokesperson said, adding that they were “amazed to learn” that donations in her honor for the World Central Kitchen (WCK) amounted to more than $100,000.
“WCK is first on the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate and community crisis. They build resilient food systems with locally led solutions. Most recently, they provided support in Uvalde, TX and Ukraine,” according to the spokesperson, who said that the organization is “especially near to their hearts.”
In the photo, Lilibet sits in the grass of her family’s UK home, wearing a blue dress and a white bow in her hair.
“Close family friend and guest, Misan Harriman, who attended Lilibet’s special day with his wife and children, took the candid, spontaneous photograph that The Duke and Duchess are pleased to share today,” the spokesperson said.
Additional details on Lilibet’s birthday celebrations were also revealed, including that the baker who made her birthday cake, Claire Ptak, is the same who created the Duke and Duchess’s wedding cake in 2018.
Lilibet is named after her great grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Harry and Meghan had traveled to the UK to celebrate the Queen’s jubilee, a four-day holiday weekend to mark the Queen’s unprecedented 70-year-reign. Friday marked the couple’s first public appearance at a royal event in more than two years, when they attended a thanksgiving service for the monarch in in the hallowed surroundings of St Paul’s Cathedral.
