Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared two adorable new images of their daughter Lili in their new bombshell Netflix documentary.
The first three episodes of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new TV special dropped on the streaming platform at 8am this morning.
Although their son Archie, three, has had a starring role in series so far, Lili only seems to have appeared in two fleeting moments.
During the first episode, Meghan shared a series of images from the couple’s early relationship right up until the present day.

In a picture montage, the Duchess of Sussex shared a black-and-white selfie of her holding her daughter in what appears to be the nursery of their home in Montecito, California.
Meghan gave birth to daughter Lilibet Diana – who is named after Prince Harry’s mother and grandmother – on June 4, 2021.
The picture appears to have been taken just weeks later and shows the mother-of-two cuddling up with her newborn, who is wrapped up in a printed blanket.
Offering a glimpse into Lili’s nursery, the room has been decorated with wildlife illustrations – including a squirrel above the door and tree branches around her changing table.

Later on in the series, the couple also shared a black-and-white photo of Prince Harry kissing a newborn baby – believed to be Lili – on the nose.
Last August, the Duchess of Sussex gave fans a glimpse inside her office in Montecito, where she had this portrait in a gold picture-frame alongside two other previously-unseen images.
What’s more, another intimate moment shows Prince Harry reading a story to his daughter and son on the sofa of their home in California.
The footage – which appears to have been taken by Meghan – shows Harry’s daughter sitting on his lap while he holds the book out in front of him.
Meanwhile, Archie – whose American accent is heard in an earlier clip – is seen perching on the side – also engrossed in the story.

On the other side of the sofa, the couple’s dogs – rescue beagle Mia and their black labrador – are seen napping in a sunny spot.
Meghan’s school poem about divorce:
Two houses, two homes, two kitchens, two phones.
Two coaches where I lay, two places where I stay.
Moving, moving here and there, from Monday to Friday, I’m everywhere.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that bad but often times it makes me sad.
I want to live that nuclear life with a happy dad and his loving wife.
A picket fence, a shaggy dog, a fireplace with a burning log.
But it’s not real, it’s just a dream, I cannot cry or even scream.
So here I sit with cat number three, life would be easy if there were two of me
Before now, the couple had only ever shared two photos of their daughter – one which marked her first birthday and another for their official family Christmas image.
As the heartwarming footage plays, Prince Harry says: ‘Equally, what is most important is that we don’t repeat the same mistakes that perhaps our parents made.’
Elsewhere in the episode, Meghan Markle opened up about how her parents’ divorce affected her and explained how she lived with her mother Doria Ragland, 66, during the week before spending her weekends with her father Thomas Markle, 78.
Former makeup artist Doria and ex-cameraman Thomas met on the set of General Hospital and married in 1979 – before then separating when Meghan was six years old.
Describing herself as a ‘daddy’s girl’ as a child, Meghan said: ‘I do remember feeling lonely as a kid and wanting to have more people around.’
This then prompted the Duchess to write about her experience as a child of divorced parents when she was 12 years old and a student at Immaculate Heart school in LA.
She explained: ‘One of the assignments was to write a poem about your life and I remember this poem to this day.
Reciting it word-for-word, Meghan began: ‘Two houses, two homes, two kitchens, two phones.
‘Two coaches where I lay, two places where I stay. Moving, moving here and there, from Monday to Friday, I’m everywhere.
‘Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that bad but often times it makes me sad. I want to live that nuclear life with a happy dad and his loving wife.
‘A picket fence, a shaggy dog, a fireplace with a burning log. But it’s not real, it’s just a dream, I cannot cry or even scream.
‘So here I sit with cat number three, life would be easy if there were two of me.’
Meghan: ‘I had to Google God Save The Queen!’
She then proceeded to share a home movie clip from 1993 from when she took a fishing trip with her estranged father Thomas Markle.
She added: ‘My dad lived alone, he had two adult children who had moved out of his house. I was a daddy’s girl my whole life and I was with him a lot.’
After Thomas was unable to travel from his home in Mexico to Windsor for the couple’s 2018 wedding, the Duchess of Sussex wrote a letter to her father asking for him to stop giving press interviews.
The 78-year-old claims he has never met his grandchildren Archie, three and Lili, one.
Elsewhere in the clip, Prince Harry opens about the effect Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ divorce had on him.
He explained: ‘I think most children who are the product of divorced parents have a lot in common – no matter what your background is.
‘Being pulled from one place to another or maybe your parents are competitive, or you’re in one place longer than you want to be and you’re in another less than you want to be.
‘There’s all sorts of piece to that.’
Princess Diana and Prince Charles’ divorce was finalised in 1996 after they’d been already been separated for four years.
