Rumours fly that the Duchess of Cambridge to host baby shower in London for the Duchess of Sussex

There’s a rumour floating around that the Duchess of Cambridge will host a baby shower for her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Sussex in London.

According to a royal source speaking to US Weekly, “There is still going to be some sort of private baby-centric event for Meghan’s UK people, and Kate will host.”

The source continued, “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’s friends hosted a baby shower for her on 20 February in the penthouse suite of The Mark Hotel in New York City, with guests including Abigail Spencer, Jessica Mulroney, Serena Williams, Amal Clooney and Gayle King.

The Duchess of Cambridge didn’t attend the New York City baby shower, with reports that she and her family were either in Norfolk or off on their skiing holiday in Europe due to it being half-term for Prince George and Princess Charlotte that week.

Meghan spent a total of five days in New York City, meeting up with her close friends for dinners and attending her baby shower. Prince Harry did not join her, though People magazine reports that he found a way to stay in touch during the festivities.

Jean-Georges Vongerichten, the head chef at The Mark Hotel, posted a video on Instagram that had been captured by a Meghan fan account showing off the sweets he’d made for the baby shower, including cookies and cupcakes in a baby theme, though nothing pink or blue, since Meghan and Harry have not publicly revealed if they know the gender of their baby.

The Duchess of Sussex ended up donating the flowers used at the baby shower to Repeat Roses, a charity that provides flowers to nursing homes, care facilities, hospitals, and homeless shelters. Meghan’s flowers ended up at The American Cancer Society and the Ronald McDonald Children’s Charity.
