Meghan Markle is currently taking a break from her royal duties to spend some time in New York City, and it looks like a glamorous baby shower might be underway.
According to Good Morning America’s royal correspondent Omid Scobie, Markle began her trip to New York City on Friday with plans of a private baby shower. The Duchess of Sussex was spotted leaving The Mark Hotel on Tuesday afternoon, where the Daily Mail reports the baby shower is set to take place on Wednesday.
Markle wore an all-black ensemble, pairing a long, short-sleeved coat with black skinny jeans and tan suede heels. A pair of large black sunglasses added an extra casual touch to her typically formal royal wardrobe.
Markle’s friend and former “Suits” co-star Abigail Spencer was also spotted at The Mark while carrying what appears to be a gift for the mum-to-be. The Daily Mail reported that Markle and Spencer left shortly after Spencer arrived to visit the Met Breuer and The Surrey hotel but returned to The Mark less than two hours later.
Scobie told Good Morning America that the baby shower will reunite Markle with some of her longtime friends.
“Today’s baby shower is a reunion of sorts for Meghan,” Scobie told Good Morning America. “[Guests] include best pal Jessica Mulroney, actress and close pal Abigail Spencer has flown in, and Priyanka Chopra is supposed to be flying in especially for this from London Fashion Week. It will be a celebration with her closest friends.”
