Lilibet was born on 4 June 2021 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, with the proud parents announcing her birth to the world two days later.

She is named after her great-grandmother, the Queen, whose family nickname is Lilibet. She is currently eighth in the line of succession.

Harry and Meghan will celebrate Lilibet’s first Christmas

It’s clear that the Duke and Duchess are keen to let their children grow up as private citizens, particularly as they will not carry out a public role in the future.

Archie has only been seen publicly a handful of times since his birth in May 2019, with Meghan sharing a recent picture of her son during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Several family photos could be seen on Meghan’s desk in a special video to mark her 40th birthday in August, with many royal fans guessing that one of them could be Harry holding Lilibet.

Last year, the Sussexes released a beautiful drawing based on a family photo taken by Meghan’s mum, Doria Ragland. It showed the family-of-three playing in their garden with their dogs, Guy and Pula, as they celebrated their first Christmas in the US. The adorable Christmas card was shared by one of the Duchess’ patronages, animal welfare charity, Mayhew.
