Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor also turned one on June 4, Saturday. However, she did not recieve any royal celebration. 

Earlier, on BBC Breakfast, Scobie said: “I think people are expecting some sort of big birthday extravagant event, that we’re going to see photographs from. From what I’m told, we shouldn’t expect anything. Those moments with Lilibet are very much private between them and the Queen and of course we know how much she’s been looking forward to it. They’ve been held back by a pandemic. Of course the times that Harry has been here it’s just been by himself for quite sombre occasions. And so this really was the first time.”
