Here’s what little Princess Lilibet looks like now

Plus, see every photo Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared of their daughter…

In a world captivated by royal families, the curiosity surrounding the newest members knows no bounds.

Princess Lilibet Diana Sussex (formerly Mountbatten-Windsor), the second child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has intrigued royal enthusiasts worldwide since her birth in 2021.

However, glimpses of her remain elusive, leaving many to wonder: what does Princess Lilibet look like now?

Read on to learn all you need to know about Princess Lilibet and to see every official photo that’s ever been shared of the little royal.

Who is Princess Lilibet?

Princess Lilibet, affectionately known as Lili, is currently seventh in the order of succession to the British throne.

Born on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, California, she is the younger sister of Archie Harrison Sussex.

Despite her royal lineage, Princess Lilibet resides in the United States with her parents Harry and Meghan, a deviation from the traditional royal upbringing.

Furthermore, unlike her cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, Princess Lilibet’s appearances are sparingly shared with the public.

Her parents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have chosen to prioritise her privacy, opting for a more secluded upbringing away from the relentless scrutiny of the media.

This decision stems from their own experiences with intense media interest, a topic they’ve openly discussed, advocating for a more private life for their children.

One notable absence following Princess Lilibet’s birth was the classic post-birth photocall.

Unlike her older brother and royal cousins, who all made their debuts on the steps of the hospitals they were born in, Princess Lilibet’s introduction to the world was markedly different.

Harry and Meghan chose to forgo the traditional public appearance as they had stepped back from the royal family prior to Lilibet’s birth.

Of course, the Sussex’s do occasionally share updates about Lilibet and her brother Archie with the public. Most recently, Harry told Good Morning America in February 2024:

“The kids are doing great. The kids are growing up like all kids do, very, very fast. They’ve both got an incredible sense of humour and make us laugh and keep us grounded every single day, like most kids do. I’m just grateful to be a dad.”

How old is Lilibet?

As of February 2024, Princess Lilibet is two years old.

What is Lilibet’s nationality?

Princess Lilibet holds dual nationality, being born in the United States to a British father and an American mother.

What is Lilibet’s real name?

Princess Lilibet’s full name, Lilibet Diana Sussex, pays homage to both her late great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II (whose childhood nickname was Lilibet) and her late grandmother, Diana, Princess of Wales.
