A second replied: “Happy birthday Lilibet! I have to say that the Queen deciding to spend her weekend celebrations with her own family around her is the best thing she’s done. 

“70 years she’s put the crown and the public engagements first, this is her weekend and she’s spending it the best way!”

Lilibet is the youngest child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who also have three-year-old Archie. 

The family of four are currently in the UK celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee but have expressed they want to “keep a low profile” according to the BBC.

Despite having never met the Queen, Lilibet, who was welcomed last year at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California, was named in honour of her great-grandmother, who was known by the namesake as an infant. 

Charles and Camilla sent the same message to Lili

Lilibet was first used when Princess Elizabeth was just a toddler and unable to pronounce her own name properly.

Her grandfather, King George V, would affectionately call her “Lilibet” imitating her own attempts to say Elizabeth.

Her middle name, Diana, was chosen to honor her beloved late grandmother, The Princess of Wales.
