Meghan Markle baby shower details

As the day has worn on, more details about Meghan Markle’s baby shower have come to light — including the location and some of the guests.

Markle arrived ahead of the weekend for a baby shower planned by her best friend Jessica Mulroney. Among those rumored to be on the guest list were Priyanka Chopra and Abigail Spencer.

Markle was seen leaving The Mark Hotel wearing all black as her security team helped her to the car. She was accompanied by pal Spencer, with ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie noting that the two were getting lunch before the shower.

Scobie told Good Morning America earlier: “Today’s baby shower is a reunion of sorts for Meghan. [Guests] include best pal Jessica Mulroney, actress and close pal Abigail Spencer has flown in, and Priyanka Chopra is supposed to be flying in especially for this from London Fashion Week.”

He added: “It’ll be a celebration with her closest friends.”

People writer Stephanie Petit, who covers the royals, tweeted: “So it looks like Meghan Markle’s afternoon with pal Abigail Spencer included: – a trip to the Met Breuer – a bite to eat at Cafe Boulud, inside the Surrey Hotel… All within a few block of The Mark, where guests are now arriving for the Duchess’ baby shower!”

Abigail Spencer’s baby gift might reveal a gender clue

When Markle’s former Suits co-star, Spencer, arrived to the shower, she carried a gift in a blue and green floral bag with blue tissue paper. Did the wrapping color choice mean anything though? Many fans speculated that this means Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are having a boy, but others aren’t so sure.

Earlier in the day, a variety of flowers were delivered to the hotel and people noticed there were a lot of pink flowers, so rumors started swirling that the couple are having a girl.

One baby gift that was seen in plain site was a babyletto crib that was delivered to the hotel. The box contained a three-in-one convertible Hudson crib.

The company’s website described the item as “mid-century modern appeal… featuring stylish rounded spindles and an open modern silhouette” and “made with eco-friendly, non-toxic materials.” The crib can be converted to a toddler bed and daybed as the child grows.

Fans are following along closely to see who attends Markle’s New York City baby shower and if any more of her gifts or details of the intimate gathering will be seen. The Duchess of Sussex is reportedly having a second baby shower in the UK, following a trip to Morocco with Prince Harry.
