The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lilibet is spending her first birthday in the UK as the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations continue.
Harry and Meghan’s second child, born at 11.40am on Friday June 4, 2021 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, was named in honour of the Queen.
Lilibet, the Queen’s family nickname – was first used when 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 sweet 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.
Neither Lilibet, nor her older brother three-year-old Archie, have been seen in public at any of the Jubilee celebrations so far.
