Pregnant Meghan Markle was spotted in New York City where she is reported to be meeting up with some of her closest friends for a secret baby shower. Meghan is expecting her and Prince Harry's first child, and while the trip to NYC might come as a surprise, the baby shower has apparently been planned for a long time already. Meghan and Prince Harry are busy renovating their new home, Frogmore Cottage, and getting everything in order before the baby comes, so this girls trip probably comes as a nice break for Meghan.
Meghan's NYC trip is definitely last minute since it is the last week that she is allowed to travel to the U.S. before the baby is born. Anyone looking for Kate Middleton in attendance will be disappointed to learn she is not on the guest list, not because of any rumoured feud between the two Duchesses, but because this baby shower is for Meghan's old friends. In fact, this is one of two baby showers for the Duchess of Sussex; a second shower is planned in the UK within a couple of weeks.
As reported by Elle, Meghan's NYC baby shower is believed to be hosted by her longtime friend, Jessica Mulroney, and the venue is an Upper East Side hotel. The guest list boasts several well-known names among the fifteen people in attendance, such as Priyanka Chopra, who apparently has flown in from London Fashion Week specifically for the baby shower, and Meghan's Suits co-star Abigail Spencer.
Another notable person who is attending Meghan's baby shower is fashion designer Misha Nonoo. Misha is reportedly the person who brought Meghan and Prince Harry together in the first place, and she is also rumored to be helping the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in the deciding on a school for their child.
While the women attending Meghan's baby shower are not likely to share any photos on social media, it does make everyone feel even more excited about Meghan and Prince Harry's first child. Some are saying Meghan is loving the attention and that the 'secret' NYC baby shower was not really kept secret from the press, but either way, she seems to be enjoying herself in New York City with her close friends.
