Meghan Markle has just had a baby shower in New York, and naturally, we want to know all the things.
The event is said to have broken royal protocol, given that according to royal etiquette expert, Victoria Arbiter, baby showers are frowned upon by the royal family.
Speaking to People, Arbiter said this is because royals, including and Meghan and Harry, can afford everything their baby needs, and baby showers, in the traditional sense, are about showering the expectant mother with baby items.
Nonetheless – Meghan has flown home to New York to celebrate with friends, a trip that took the public by surprise but has apparently been in the works for months.
Speaking of babies, have you checked out our first date with host of the new podcast “The Baby Bubble”? Post continues after video.
Details of the supposed shower have been kept very under wraps, but of course, bits and pieces have started slipping through the cracks.
Here’s what we know
A big delivery was spotted arriving at the New York hotel where Meghan is staying, that appeared to be party favours.
A dozen luxury suitcases were dropped off at The Mark on Wednesday morning, according to Hello Magazine, said to be gifts for Meghan’s friends.
Harpist Erin Hill was also pictured arriving at the hotel with her instrument, so that appears to be the music sorted.
A large cotton candy machine was wheeled in too, and goodness we’re starting to really wish we were invited.
Tatler reported that Meghan was holding the do’ in the hotel’s penthouse suite which is spread over two floors and has views of Central Park.
It costs AUD $109,307 a night and features five bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms, and two powder rooms.
The celebrations reportedly kicked off with some flower arranging lessons, followed by a dessert buffet prepared by Michelin star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
As for the guest list, Meghan’s Suits co-star Abigail Spencer was the first to arrive.
Serena Williams was also there – and posted an Instagram snap from The Mark’s signature bathrooms.
It has been said she was actually hosting the event, and there are even reports she is footing the bill.
