It is the first time Lilibet, Lily for short, has been publicly referred to as a princess in a statement by the Sussexes. Lilibet became a princess when her grandfather, King Charles, ascended the throne following the death of Queen Elizabeth last September. Knuth Lily and Archie’s titles as princess and prince will be used in formal settings but will not be used everyday by the couple, Sky News reported.

The ceremony took place privately at the Sussexes’ home in Montecito, California. The first public image of Lily was released in December 2021 in the couple’s Christmas card. It was taken by Aleksi Lubomirski and shows Prince Harry hugging their son Archie as Meghan Markle lifts Lilibet in the air.
“This year, in 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, into the world. Archie made us ‘Mama’ and ‘Papa’ and Lily made us a family,” the opening line of the message in the card read.
