It is thought that Harry and Meghan spent their daughter’s birthday privately as a family.
The lowkey celebrations come after Lili was introduced to the Queen for the first time.
Despite being named in honour of her great-grandmother, the young royal, who was welcomed last year at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, has not had many opportunities to meet her extended family, given the fact that she was born during the COVID-19 pandemic and the Sussexes now live in America.

Speaking about the happy first meeting, HELLO! ‘s Royal Editor, Emily Nash said: “This will be a highlight of the jubilee celebrations for the Queen – her great-grandchildren mean the world to her and like any great grandmother who hasn’t been able to meet the youngest member of the family yet, the moment when it finally happens will be full of joy.”
