The royal family’s newest member enjoyed a lavish celebration at the Mark Hotel in NYC on Wednesday. Celebs flew in from all over the country to celebrate Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s new baby who’ll be arriving sometime this April.
The “private, intimate” event was cohosted by longtime friends Serena Williams and Genevieve Hillis.
The guest list included 20 of Meghan’s closest friends “from her teenage years to the present,” including Amal Clooney, Gayle King, and Suits co-star Abigail Spencer. But, two important people were notably missing – Kate Middleton and best friend Priyanka Chopra-Jonas.
Chopra-Jonas couldn’t make it to the baby shower because she was “stuck working in Los Angeles,” reportedly in mandatory meetings over a book she’s currently writing.
Meghan’s party included an “amazing” flower-arranging lesson led by Lewis Miller. The resulting creations were donated to Repeat Roses, an organization that supplies previously-used floral arrangements to facilities like hospitals, hospices, nursing homes, cancer treatment centers, and domestic abuse and homeless shelters.
Michelin-star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten supplied the food for the party as his restaurant, The Mark, is located at the hotel.
A source confirmed to BAZAAR.com that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan will host a small baby shower with friends and family in the U.K. at a future date, and Kate Middleton will probably attend this event.
