Happy birthday Lilibet: Royals send wishes to Prince Harry and Meghan’s daughter as she turns one | UK News


Members of the Royal Family have wished the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lilibet a happy birthday as she turns one year’s old.

Royals including the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to Twitter on Saturday to mark the youngster’s first birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were reunited with their family in public for the first time in two years on Friday at the Jubilee thanksgiving service.

The pair flew in from America with children Archie and Lilibet ahead of the four-day Platinum Jubilee celebrations and were expected to introduce daughter Lilibet to her namesake, the Queen.

Lilibet was first used as a nickname for the Queen when the then-Princess Elizabeth was just a toddler and unable to pronounce her own name properly.

Her grandfather, King George V, would affectionately call her “Lilibet” imitating her own attempts to say Elizabeth.

The nickname stuck and she became Lilibet to her family from then on.

One-year-old Lilibet, known as Lili, has the middle name Diana, which was chosen in memory of her late grandmother.

It comes as Platinum Jubilee festivities continue on Saturday, with Sir Elton John and Duran Duran to perform at Party At The Palace on day three.
