Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared the first photo of their daughter, Lilibet “Lili” Diana, as part of their 2021 Christmas card, released six months after the birth of their second child.

In the snapshot, Meghan, 39, is seen holding Lili up in the air while Harry, 36, sits next to them with the Sussexes’ firstborn child, 2-year-old son Archie Harrison, on his lap.

Harry, Meghan and Archie are all wearing jeans in the family portrait, which was taken at home over the summer, while Lili has on a white dress to match her big brother’s button-down shirt.

“This year, 2021, we welcomed our daughter, Lilibet, to the world,” the card is captioned. “Archie made us a ‘Mama’ and a ‘Papa,’ and Lili made us a family.”

The couple also announced that their Archewell Foundation will be making donations to various organizations that “honor and protect families.”

Meghan and Harry welcomed their baby girl on June 4 at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in California.

“She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe,” the Sussexes said in a statement at the time.

Lili, who is eighth in line to the British throne, weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces.

Meghan and Harry’s newest arrival is named in honor of the prince’s paternal grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and his late mother, Princess Diana. Lilibet is the Queen’s family nickname.

Page Six previously reported that Harry had phoned the Queen for permission to name his daughter Lilibet ahead of the child’s birth.

Despite the tribute, one royal commentator called the choice of name “rude,” as it was a private nickname used by the Queen’s late husband, Prince Philip.

Meghan and Harry famously split from the royal family in early 2020. They currently reside in a $14 million mansion in Montecito, Calif.

The royals appeared to put rocky relations aside when they publicly congratulated Meghan and Harry on the birth of their daughter.

“The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been informed and are delighted with the news of the birth of a daughter for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said at the time.

Harry’s older brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, also said they were “delighted by the happy news” of Lili’s arrival.

Meghan and Harry revealed in February that they were expecting their second child, months after the former “Suits” actress confirmed that she had suffered a devastating miscarriage in July 2020.

The Sussexes revealed a baby girl was on the way during their bombshell March interview with Oprah Winfrey that also took aim at the palace.

Meghan and Harry celebrated their third wedding anniversary in May.
