Kate Middleton is reportedly planning to throw a second baby shower for sister-in-law Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle is due in April and the second baby shower is going to provide her British friends and relatives a chance to join the celebrations
Meghan Markle is currently pregnant with her and Prince Harry's first child and is due to deliver in April. The Duchess of Sussex was recently in New York for a lavish baby shower that she celebrated with her closest friends.
However, according to US Weekly, Meghan's sister-in-law Kate Middleton is planning to throw her another baby shower which is going to take place in the United Kingdom. A royal insider shared, "There is still going to be some sort of private baby-centric event for Meghan’s UK people, and Kate will host. Her glam people and other relatives will be there. Not sure if it’s a total baby ‘shower,’ but you could probably call it that."
Meghan Markle's first baby shower was held at the Mark Hotel in NYC and was a star-studded affair with the likes of Amal Clooney, Gayle King, and Jessica Mulroney in attendance. Given that Meghan is only due in April, the second baby shower is going to provide Markle's British friends and relatives a chance to join in on the celebration as she waits to give birth.
Meghan's first baby shower, which had predominantly pink decorations, left many fans and followers thinking that she may be having a girl. However, Meghan reportedly told her friends that it was a boy.
Meghan's trip to New York was a pretty expensive affair and included a stay of at least two nights at the Mark Hotel in a $75,000-per-night penthouse, a dinner at expensive The Polo Bar, as well as $14,000 for her protection. It also included thousands of dollars in gifts. Amal Clooney reportedly paid around $125,000 for a private jet which flew Meghan home. It is also reported that she arrived in New York via private jet putting her round trip travel cost at a quarter of a million dollars.
One of Meghan's closest friends Serena Williams gave fans a glimpse into the luxury penthouse which she had reportedly booked. The tennis star shared a couple of snaps from the suite's huge bathroom and captioned the pictures, "Even on relaxing day I often need to remind myself I am beautiful and strong. I seriously am grateful for these pants. I needed them today."
