Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Share the First Photo of Baby Lili With Archie

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have given the world the first look at their baby girl Lilibet “Lili” Diana just ahead of Christmas. The couple shared the first photo of Lili with them and her big brother Archie as part of their holiday card.

The photo was taken by Alexi Lubomirski this summer at the Duke and Duchess’s Montecito, California home.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Archie and Lilibet. 

This is one of those rare and special projects, that one is fortunate enough to be a part of.

To be able to continue the story of this family whom I first photographed as an engaged couple, then on the day of their wedding, as a married couple and now seeing their love manifest into two beautiful children, has been a delightful honour.

Anyone who has seen my #AllLoveSeries, will know that one of the greatest joys I receive from photography, is when I am able to photograph “love” in some form or another.

To be trusted by your subjects enough, to open themselves up and have their connection documented and translated into an image, is one of the greatest gifts a photographer can have. 

This day with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was one such joyous experience and one that I feel extremely privileged to have been invited to capture.

The card’s message reads:

Happy Holidays 

This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world. Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa’, and Lili made us a family. As we look forward to 2022, we have made donations on your behalf to several organizations that honor and protect families–from those being relocated from Afghanistan, to American families in need of paid parental leave:

Team Rubicon
Human First Coalition
Humanity Crew
Paid Leave For All
Marshall Plan for Moms

Wishing you a happy holiday season and a prosperous New Year, from our family to yours!

As ever,
Harry, Meghan, Archie & Lili
