Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor turned one over the weekend, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's photographer friend Misan Harriman has shared a series of photos from the occasion to celebrate.

While we were all celebrating the Queen's Jubilee, her great grandchild was enjoying her first birthday party, and we finally have a glimpse into the little birthday party Meghan and Harry threw.

"It was such a privilege to celebrate the 1st birthday of Lilibet with my family and hers! Joy and face painting all around ❤️🎂🎉" Harriman wrote on Instagram alongside a carousel of photos.

In the first one, Lilibet is sat on the grass wearing a blue dress with frilly sleeves and a matching bow in her hair. In a second photo, Meghan holds her daughter while looking at the camera. And yeah, she looks JUST like her dad.

The comments were full of birthday wishes and celebrations for the one-year-old. "So sweet 🌸" one person wrote, while another put, "She is so cute." A third said, "This is really amazing and she’s so beautiful."

According to The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted an informal garden party at their former home, Frogmore Cottage, on Saturday for Lilibet, with picnic-style snacks, a birthday cake, balloons and party games.

"It was a lovely do and had everything you’d expect from a child’s birthday party," a source told The Sun. "But there was no formal entertainment. The idea was for it to be very relaxed and casual, with people free to pop in and out as they wished."

The guest list reportedly featured a number of royals including Zara and Mike Tindall (as well as their three children), and Peter Phillips and Autumn Kelly (along with their two kids). Archie Harrison's godfather Charlie Van Straubenzee was also in attendance, in addition to his brother Tom, who is Princess Charlotte’s godfather.

"It was a nice opportunity for the other royal children to meet Lilibet for the first time," the royal insider added.

So cute. Happy birthday, Lilibet!
