Royal fans have been left disappointed after the Royal Family wished Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ’s daughter Lilibet a happy birthday with no photo of the youngster.
Lilibet, who turns one today (June 4), is currently in the UK and is expected to celebrate the big day with members of the Royal Family, including the Queen.
Harry and Meghan are back in the UK together for the first time since they left their royal working roles two years ago.
The couple have brought Lilibet and Archie to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee but royal fans have felt ‘sadness’ after no photos of the birthday girl were tweeted.
The Royal Family’s official Twitter account posted a message with a single red balloon, which read: “Wishing Lilibet a very Happy 1st Birthday!”.
Royal fans also questioned whether a photo may be being published by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex later but one fan tweeted over whether Lilibet’s birthday photos may be saved for the Duke and Duchess’s rumoured Netflix documentary project.
One royal fan tweeted: “This is hilarious, no photos says it all.”

Another fan tweeted: “The sadness of this tweet without a photo…
(If the Sussexes decided to reserve for Netflix the exclusion of personal images that even the BRF does not have access to, that would be pretty ugly).”
A third commented: “We need an official photograph with the Sussex and Prince Charles, not only one birthday message.”
The Queen was due to visit the Epsom Derby today but has pulled out of the event.

The decision has led to royal fans hoping this means the Queen will get to spend time with Lilibet on her birthday.
One tweeted: “So special that she’s sharing her first birthday with her family in England on her great-grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. I know she won’t be able to remember, but I hope they take mountains of photos for her to look back on when she’s older.”

Another added: “I am hoping the Queen is enjoying time behind the scenes with her family in private.”
Meghan and Harry were not on the Buckingham Palace balcony as the Jubilee celebrations kicked off, but instead were seen only in a few photos, taken through a window at Horse Guards Parade during Trooping the Colour.
On Friday, they were present at a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral, but did not go to a reception afterwards at the Guildhall which was attended by most of the other royals.
