Duchess Meghan enjoyed a dinner at Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar restaurant last night following day one of her tacky two-day American baby shower hosted by her tacky American friends. I’m surprised they still had an appetite after a playing the “Name That Poop” melted candy bar in a diaper game but they somehow still managed to dine. Joining Meghan at dinner was good friend Serena Williams who also attended the first shower. According to The Cut, Meghan’s surprise trip to New York City is winding down and she’s expected to leave the city today after her second show and probably after making a pit stop at a bodega for a sack full of bacon egg and cheese sammies for the plane.
Here’s Meghan and crew rolling up to the restaurant, probably with no reservation, and making a big scene by talking too loudly and using their selfie sticks to take pictures in the lounge.

Another sighting of the Duchess of Sussex this evening arriving at dinner, accompanied by Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney, and Markus Anderson. She is wearing the same @victoriabeckham coat she wore to at the Christmas service in Sandringham, Tamara Mellon boots, and carrying a new Stella McCartney bag.

Meghan and probably Serena haven’t spent as much time together as they used to, but they’ve been friends since 2010. According to Serena, the two “have only grown closer since they’ve both experienced ‘media scrutiny’, which is putting it mildly.

I don’t know, I think Serena’s derpy faux nerd glasses are a far greater crime. But then again, she’s not a Duchess. All the same, they both have to put up with shit like this.

Apparently Lorraine is an ITV morning show hosted by some woman named Lorraine Kelly who’s photo intern must be Piers Morgan. At this point it’s just a typical day in the life of The Duchess and The Goat which I’m about to go write up as a children’s book because what a great title!
The Daily Mail reports that Meghan won’t have much a break before heading out on another adventure. She and Prince Harry are scheduled for a 3-day official tour of Morocco starting Saturday. On the agenda are a State Dinner, meeting with children with special needs, visiting a number of schools, watching a cooking demonstration, and “attending a horse grooming session at an equestrian facility“. Shit, I hope her short visit with her friends helped charge her batteries. She’s going to need all the energy she can get.
