Lilibet celebrated her first birthday with an incredible party at their UK home, Frogmore Cottage. The backyard picnic was attended by close friends and family, and while not many details have been revealed, we do know that kids were treated to face painting.

The family also released a gorgeous photo of their daughter, taken by family friend Misan Harriman, who attended the casual, intimate backyard picnic alongside his family.

In the snap, the young girl wears a baby blue dress with a white bow in her hair. She has gorgeous ginger hair, similar to her father Harry and older brother Archie.

Misan shared another photograph on his own Instagram account which showed Meghan and Lili smiling happily alongside his wife Camilla and his two kids.

Captioning the snap, he wrote: "It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around."

It is unclear if Lili's uncle and aunt, Prince William and Kate Middleton, or her cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis met her during the celebrations, as the family were taking part in the four-day Platinum Jubilee events for the Queen.

She did reportedly meet her great-grandmother the Queen during the weekend, and 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."
