Meghan, who resides in Montecito, California, returned to the UK this summer with Prince Harry and their kids, Archie Harrison and Lilibet Diana, to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted during Trooping the Colour at the Major General’s Office on June 2. The couple also joined the royal family on June 3 for the Service of Thanksgiving.
While in the UK, Meghan and Harry celebrated their daughter Lilibet’s first birthday. The pair “invited close friends and family” over to Frogmore Cottage for a “casual, intimate backyard picnic.” Baker Claire Ptak, who created Meghan and Harry’s wedding cake in 2018, made a special two-tier pink cake for Lilibet.
Misan Harriman, who attended the celebration and snapped Lilibet’s birthday photo, wrote on Instagram: “It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around ❤️🎂🎉 .”
