She gets it from her family! Ever since her first photos were released, royal fans have been debating baby Lili’s resemblance to her royal family members. The big question is, who does Lilibet look like the most?
Lilibet Diana celebrated her first birthday on June 4, 2022, at her parent’s residence at Frogmore Cottage in the UK. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Harry’s home country to celebrate his grandmother’s 70th year of service during the Platinum Jubilee weekend. Photographer Misan Harriman released pictures of the birthday celebration on June 4, 2022. He captioned the photos, “It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around.”
Right after the photos were posted, fans took to Twitter to draw comparisons between the little one, her parents, her namesake Queen Elizabeth and her late grandmother, Princess Diana. One user tweeted, “lilibet diana literally being the perfect mix of harry and meghan 😭🤍” Others were battling it out to decide which parent’s features were more prevalent in little Lilibet. One person tweeted, “i’m sorry harry but lilibet is meghan’s twin for sure ❤️❤️.”
Another Twitter user made comparisons between Lilibet and her extended family, writing, “Okay Lili is a cute mix of mom and dad. Meghan winning in the face except her nose and Harry and Meghan winning with the hair (Meghan’s older brother has red hair lmao). I gotta look out for my girl Meghan lol she’s still in the ring don’t count her out lol.”
A Princess Diana fan account also posted a comparison video between Lilibet and Prince William’s daughter, Charlotte. One person commented on the video, “I think [Lilibet] will look like Lady Diana.”
Though most of her family did not attend her birthday party, Lilibet had a great time meeting her namesake Queen Elizabeth II. The Monarch met her great-granddaughter for the first time during a private lunch on June 2, 2022. During Lilibet’s birthday celebrations, William and Kate had prior commitments and were scheduled to be in Wales to meet with performers for a concert for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations at Cardiff Castle. Prince Charles is thought to have given Lilibet a swing for her birthday, a similar one to William and Kate’s.
