The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as their three-year-old son Archie, celebrated Lili’s first birthday this past weekend while they were in the UK for the Queen’s Jubilee.

Close friends and family were invited to a low-key garden picnic at Frogmore Cottage.

Zara and Mike Tindall’s children Mia, eight, Lena, three, and Lucas, one, are all believed to have attended, along with Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly’s daughters Savannah, 11, and Isla, ten.

Other guests expected at the birthday celebration included Archie’s godfather Charlie Van Straubenzee, and his brother Tom, Princess Charlotte’s godfather.

Violet Bakery’s Claire Ptak, who produced Harry and Meghan’s 2018 wedding cake, created a custom cake for the special day, Harper’s Bazaar reports.

A spokesperson for the Sussexes revealed tonight that more than $100,000 in donations were made to the World Central Kitchen in honour of Lilibet’s birthday.

The charity provides meals to those in need, and has most recently opened a kitchen in Uvalde, Texas after the school shooting.

Over the weekend, members of the royal family shared sweet birthday tributes to little Lilibet.

Lili’s namesake Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and Duchess Kate, and Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla were among those to send their love.

The Queen met Lilibet face-to-face for the first time in a private meeting over the long weekend.

HOAR exclusively revealed that Her Majesty banned photographs from being taken as she held the tot.

It’s understood she first sat down with the family on Thursday.

Meghan and Harry wanted to bring a private snapper in to capture their first face-to-face meeting – but were told “no” as it was feared they’d share the pic with US TV networks, it’s claimed.

The Sussexes returned to California on Sunday before the end of the Jubilee festivities.
