What Lilibet Diana Wore in Her First Photo Christmas Card 2021

In what we can safely call the most anticipated royal birth of 2021, Baby Girl Sussex, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 4, 2021. Now, six months after the youngest member of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s brood arrived safely, the couple gave us all a little holiday treat: our first glimpse of the 6-month-old.

Lili was featured alongside her older brother, baby Archie, age 2, in a photograph that they released to celebrate the festive season.

“Happy Holidays,” reads the card. “This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world. Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa’, and Lili made us a family.”

Unlike prior royal baby photos Lilibet was not swaddled in a GH Hurt & Son blanket, as was her older brother when his birth was announced. Instead, the Sussexes have bucked tradition entirely, giving us our first view of their daughter wearing a darling white frilly top and shorts.

Doubling down on the adorable factor and cheer, Lilbet’s older brother Archie is wearing a white button down shirt and jeans, in accordance to the theme of the photo (mom and dad are pictured in denim as well). Meghan and Harry often mark special occasions by sharing a family photo—one that offers a rare glimpse into their days as they continue on with their post-senior royal life stateside. The couple announced they were expecting a baby on Valentine’s Day this year with a sweet photo, and confirmed that they were expecting a girl in their hallmark interview with Oprah in March.
