Happy birthday Lilibet!

In honour of the youngster's first birthday, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry - who are living in Los Angeles after stepping down as senior British royals - have released a new portrait of the birthday girl.

In the adorable picture, snapped by close family friend Misan Harriman during her birthday party over the weekend, Lilibet can be seen smiling in a pale blue frock while sitting in a grassy field.

A matching blue ribbon headband adorns her fiery red hair - a trait clearly passed on from dad Harry.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as their three-year-old son Archie, celebrated Lili's first birthday this past weekend while the family of four was in the United Kingdom for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.

A spokesperson confirmed that the Sussexes invited close friends and family for a casual and intimate backyard picnic held at Frogmore Cottage.

London's Violet Bakery's Claire Ptak, who produced Harry and Meghan's 2018 wedding cake, created a custom cake for the special day.
