Meghan Markle didn’t open her baby shower gifts for the most adorable reason!

The royal flew to the Big Apple for her baby shower


Royal mum-to-be Meghan Markle flew to the city that never sleeps to celebrate Baby Sussex with her nearest and dearest.

News anchor Gayle King revealed all the juicy details we’ve been waiting for on CBS This Morning.

Asked what she gifted the royal baby, Gayle replied, “If I told you, I’d have to kill you because she didn’t open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together.” How adorable is that?

Gayle also shared an inside scoop into the activities during the shower, which were organised by Meghan’s close pals Serena Williams, Genevieve Hillis and Jessica Mulroney. With the help of an instructor, each guest made a bouquet which was then donated to Repeat Roses, an organisation which recycles floral arrangements and uses them to cheer up the patients at cancer treatment centres. “I thought that was a very sweet thing,” said Gayle. “It just speaks to who she is. She’s very kind, she’s very generous and a really, really sweet person.”

The party was reportedly held in a suite at The Mark hotel, whose head chef happens to be none other than world-renowned culinary expert Jean-Georges Vongerichten. And if that wasn’t fancy enough, New York City-based harpist and singer Erin Hill also arrived at the hotel with her harp in tow. A cotton candy machine was also seen being wheeled into the hotel.

Meghan left the Big Apple on Wednesday to head to the airport, sporting a new accessory. The royal mama wore a simple gold chain that probably reads “mummy” or “mommy” – a baby shower gift, perhaps?

This under-the-radar, whirlwind baby shower trip comes shortly before Meghan and Harry head to Morocco for a three-day visit highlighting two of their key causes: girls’ education and youth empowerment.
