New York: The not-so-secret baby shower for the Duchess of Sussex has apparently occurred, with Gayle King and Amal Clooney among an intimate group of friends gathered at a swanky hotel on Manhattan's Upper East Side. According to the Daily Mail, the baby shower was held in a $75,000-a-night (£57,000) penthouse suite at The Mark.

Meghan arrived in New York City on Friday night for a secret trip to visit her girlfriends. The main event of the trip was an intimate baby shower hosted by Amal Clooney and Serena Williams.

 

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan's sister-in-law, was not in attendance and it is being speculated that Meghan will have another shower in England, which Kate will presumably attend.

The smiling Meghan Markle has been surrounded by fans and photographers since news of her whirlwind trip to the city surfaced Monday. She has been spotted at several locations, including The Mark Hotel, the Met Breuer museum and Ralph Lauren's The Polo Bar, with decor that celebrates one of Prince Harry's favourite sports.

The 37-year-old duchess is due in late April. Abigail Spencer, a co-star on Meghan's former TV show "Suits," was among old friends in town to fete the upcoming birth. Also out and about with Meghan were celebrities like Jessica Mulroney and Markus Anderson.
