The couple “remains incredibly touched by the birthday wishes of their daughter, Lillibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor,” the spokeswoman said, adding that they were “surprised to learn” that donations in honor of her World Central Kitchen (WCK) amounted to more than $100,000.
“WCK is first on the front lines, providing meals in response to the humanitarian, climate and societal crisis. They are building resilient diets with locally led solutions. Most recently, they have provided support in Ovaldi, Texas and Ukraine,” according to the spokesperson, who said the organization is “especially close to their hearts.” “.
In the photo, Lilibet is sitting on the grass at her family’s home in the UK, wearing a blue dress and a white bow in her hair.
Like her brother Archie, Lilbitt apparently inherited her father’s red hair.
“Close family friend and guest Maysan Harriman, who attended this special Lillipet Day with his wife and children, captured the candid and spontaneous photo that the Duke and Duchess are delighted to share today,” the spokesperson said.
Lillipet was named after her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
