reported that Markle’s friends threw her a top-secret shower on Tuesday at the The Mark hotel in New York City
For the reported occasion, Markle – who is due in late April – kept her look rather understated and opted for black maternity skinny jeans, nude heels, and a long black coat. Despite Markle’s monochromatic look, an assortment of rainbow-coloured flowers were seen arriving at the hotel on Tuesday morning, presumably for the reported shower.
Unnamed sources told Harper’s Bazaar that 15 of Markle’s closest friends attended the small fete which reportedly included Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney, Serena Williams, and designer Misha Nonoo. Markle’s friend and former “Suits” co-star Abigail Spencer was spotted by paparazzi outside the same hotel holding a gift bag.
Some notable faces were reportedly missing
The Daily Mail pointed to photos of Markle’s mum in Los Angeles during the reported shower, while Markle’s good friend Priyanka Chopra, who was expected to attend the reported shower as well, shared an Instagram snap from Beverly Hills the morning it supposedly happened.
Markle has been in the city since Friday, and a source told Harper’s Bazaar that “it’s been a relaxing visit.”
“Nothing beats face time with your friends,” the unnamed source continued. “Meg will be flying home refreshed and relaxed – and with a lot of new baby clothes.”
It apparently won’t be the last event
Royal commentator Omid Scobie, who said there were around 20 guests in attendance at the duchess’ reported baby shower, added on Twitter that Markle and Prince Harry will throw another small pre-baby party in London for their local friends and royal family members sometime before the baby arrives.
