Here’s why Meghan Markle didn’t open any of her baby shower gifts

And it all makes sense.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal baby news has dominated the past few months, with speculation building around potential god parents, baby names and of course the due date, with Meghan hinting at an April arrival.

This week the rumours surrounded Meghan’s baby shower, apparently her first of two.

Yes, Meghan spent the past few days in New York, spending some time with her closest friends before the arrival of her baby.

The intimate baby shower took place in the city’s Mark Hotel, attended by Jessica Mulroney, Abigail Spencer, Amal Clooney and Serena Williams, among some of Meghan’s other BFFs.

One attendee CBS anchor Gayle king recently spoke out about attending the shower on CBS This Morning, explaining the Duchess’ take on the present giving.

It turns out that while Meghan was gifted a lot of exciting presents, she chose not to open any of them.

Why? Well, according to Gayle, ‘she didn’t open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together’.

Going on to talk about the shower in general, Gayle continued: ‘A good time was had by all, that’s what I’ll say.’

‘She’s very kind, she’s very generous, and a really, really sweet person,’ Gayle went on to say about her friend. ‘I think her friends just wanted to celebrate her. Serena and her best friend who’s been her best friend since she was 17, Genevieve, and her friend Jessica Mulroney. Those were the three women who put it all together. It was a very, very small, private affair and just a very special time for her.’

Well that’s just lovely.
