Happy belated birthday to Lilibet!

Megan Markle and Prince Harry celebrated their youngest daughter Lilibet’s first birthday this weekend with an intimate backyard party at their Frogmore Cottage, according to People. At the soirée, close family friend Misan Harriman took the “candid, spontaneous photograph that the Duke and Duchess are pleased to share today,” a spokesperson for the family added.

In the photo, Lilibet plays in the backyard while wearing a blue dress and a white lace bow she inherited from dad Harry. Lilibet also seems to have inherited Mom and Dad’s great taste, as Claire Ptak, the chef who made the couple’s wedding cake, also crafted a special birthday treat for Lilibet to enjoy.

When it comes to presents and well wishes, Markle and Prince Harry “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 crises. They build resilient food systems with locally-led solutions. Most recently, they provided support in Uvalde, Texas, and Ukraine,” the spokesperson said. The royal couple “extended their gratitude to all who have shown support for the organization, which is especially near to their hearts.”

We wish Lilibet many more fantastic birthday celebrations to come!
