The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared two images of their gorgeous daughter; one a portrait taken on the grounds of Frogmore Cottage, and the other a black and white shot of Meghan holding Lilibet alongside Misan Harriman's wife Camilla Holmstroem and their two daughters.
Misan Harriman is a close friend of Meghan and Harry's and was the photographer behind the beautiful images.

The portrait of Lilibet shows the little girl sat down on the grass in a blue dress and matching headband.
Meanwhile, the snap of Meghan and Camilla shows a makeup-free Duchess of Sussex cradling her little girl in her arms.
The second image was shared by Misan, who wrote alongside the images: "It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around."

It has been reported the Queen attended this picnic at Frogmore Cottage to meet Lilibet, who is named after her, for the first time.
This, however, has not been confirmed by Buckingham Palace.
These photographs mark the second time Harry and Meghan have have shared images of their daughter with the public.
The first time was back in December of 2021 when the couple shared the image taken from their family Christmas card.
It showed Meghan and Harry with their son, Archie, and a newly born Lilliet, at their new home in Santa Barbara.
