This is lovely.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced the news that they were expecting a baby in Spring 2019, just months ago, with the exciting news sending the internet into a frenzy.
Who are the god parents going to be? What will be the royal baby name of choice? And of course, when is the due date?
While Meghan has hinted at an April arrival, supposedly disclosing the month to a member of the public, the question on everyone’s lips this week surrounded the Duchess’ baby shower, taking place in New York this week.
Yes, Meghan Markle 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.
While the details of the event are being kept a secret, there have been rumours of a flower arranging class and a dessert table - yes, really. A dessert table.
The sweetest detail seemed to come from the Duchess herself, with guests receiving a sweet party favour - a trio of decorated biscuits. Giving a nod to Meghan’s ‘little bump’, the three monochrome biscuits came in three different shapes - a rattle, a baby bib and stork.
Meghan’s close friend and make up artist, Daniel Martin, made the details known this week, when he shared a photo of the sweet treats to Instagram.
‘Such an incredible day celebrating #babylove,’ he captioned the sweet snap.
We hope Meghan had the baby shower she deserved!
