The newly named Princess turned one-years-old during her late great-grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee last year. Everyone was gathered to honor Queen Elizabeth, who passed away in September 2022, just a few months later.
This year, however, there have not yet been any messages to the Sussexes or Lilibet anywhere. Harry and Meghan’s son Archie celebrated his fourth birthday on May 6, which was the same day as King Charles’ official coronation. It’s not too surprising that things were busy for the Royal family that day, but they did not wish him a happy birthday either.

Meghan and Harry, however, are planning a party at home with their children and a few close friends. A source told New Idea, “No doubt she’ll be getting a truckload of presents. Meghan has fallen in love with Cartier’s absolutely divine music boxes.”
They added, “Harry is letting Meghan take charge of most of Lili’s gifts, but he was talking about adding more British books to the nursery that he used to love as a kid, like the Paddington Bear and Frog and Toad series.”

And according to Express, King Charles will be sending Lilibet a gift, a “custom-made cubby house.” This is the same style of play toy his sisters had as children.
The Royal family has recently acknowledged and included Archie and Lilibet in other ways, updating on the official website that the kids will not be referred to as “Prince Archie of Sussex” and “Princess Lilibet of Sussex” on formal occasions.
