Meghan Markle travels alone to attend a baby shower thrown by closest friends in New York

Meghan Markle might be pregnant, but that's not stopping her from jetting off solo to New York to attend a baby shower planned for her and her upcoming royal baby by some of her closest friends.
The Duchess of Sussex tried to go incognito on Monday night as she covered up in a cap and coat to reach the event unfollowed.
Meghan, who is seven months pregnant, looked quite chic in a long black overcoat and a grey newsboy cap pulled down over her dark brown tresses. She returned to NYC over the weekend to spend time with her girlfriends and was escorted into an SUV by a royal protection officer, reported Daily Mail.
The Duchess' New York trip is primarily said to include shopping and eating good food, with the main attraction being a baby shower with 15 of her closest friends at a hotel on New York's Upper East Side. The exclusive and intimate baby shower is said to be hosted by Meghan's closest pal Jessica Mulroney, who too arrived at the Big Apple at the end of last week from Toronto.
At the time of her arrival in the US, Meghan kept her head down low while getting into her ride, and was also seen carrying a second wide-brimmed black hat in her hand, along with a white bag. Although the Duchess was making quite the effort at being incognito in her low-key ensemble, her majestic diamond ring on the finger was unmistakable.
This would essentially be the former 'Suits' actress' first trip to the US after she said 'I do' to Prince Harry in May last year, and so, the pregnant Duchess wasted no time in visiting all her favorite spots while she was up there.
Meghan was spotted with her close friend and unofficial stylist Mulroney at Ladurée in SoHo on Saturday to enjoy macarons and tea in one of the location's private spaces, reported by Harper's Bazar.
The pregnant Duchess' solo trip to the US comes shortly after it was reported that she and Prince Harry had to let go of any special Valentine's day plans after the Duke of Sussex spent the couple's first V-day since their marriage on a royal engagement in the snowy city of Bardufoss, Norway.
Prince Harry attended to his royal duties on Thursday, February 14, while visiting the Exercise Clockwork military operation located 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle.
However, the military personnel on-site decided to surprise the Duke by taking him to the Quincey Shelter igloo, which they had decorated with photos from the prince’s May 2018 wedding to Meghan. “You weirdos,” Harry, the Captain-General Royal Marines joked as he took in the tribute.
Apart from the adorable pictures, the military personnel also had lit candles and were playing music to help set the mood. Harry further said to the officers who had accompanied him into the igloo, "It’s very kind of you to invite me into your private shrine or whatever you want to call it. And the music, is that part of it? Romantic, isn’t it?”
