Her friend and talented photographer Misan Harriman shared some snaps from the private event, held at the Sussexes' home Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, revealing that the kids at the party were treated to face painting.

Taking to Instagram, Misan wrote: "It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around." His carousel of photos also showed his two daughters sporting animal-themed face paints.

In honour of their little girl's birthday, they shared an official portrait, again taken by Misan, that showed Lili laughing and smiling up at the sky. Lili was dressed in a pale blue dress and wore a white bow in her hair by Village Baby.
