  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex ask for donations over gifts for Lilibet 'Lili' Diana The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have asked those who were wishing to send their baby daughter Lilibet 'Lili' Diana a gift to instead consider sending a donation to the women's charities close to their hearts. At the bottom of their message of thanks, the couple wrote: "For those inquiring on sending gifts, we would ask that you support of learn more about these organisations working for women and girls: Girls Inc, Harvest Home, CAMFED and the Myna Mahila Foundation."

It's been a week of milestones, both happy and sombre, for Queen Elizabeth II.

Over the weekend, she enjoyed a scaled-down Trooping the Colour in honour of her 95th birthday and met the 14th US president elected during her reign, Joe Biden.

Thursday marked a more bittersweet occasion: what would have been the 100th birthday of her late husband Prince Philip, who died in April. However, the day brought with it an adorable surprise for the monarch — a new corgi puppy.

According to The Sun, princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and their father Prince Andrew gave Her Majesty the six-week-old puppy as a gift ahead of her 'official' birthday.

The new puppy's name is not yet known, but a Windsor Castle source is quoted saying, "The Queen has had a rough time and she is absolutely delighted to have a new corgi."

Queen Elizabeth has become synonymous with the Pembroke Welsh corgi, having been surrounded by the breed her entire life. She was given her first, Susan, by her parents when she turned 18.
