Things are getting so bad in the royal family that Duchess Meghan had to flee jolly ol’ England to go shame eat at the Olive Garden in Times Square. I’m only kidding, that’s just me projecting my own go-to stress relief. The friends Meghan had before marrying Prince Harry wanted to host a baby shower for her. Rather than fly to England to make things easy for the pregnant lady, they made her come to New York City for her baby shower. What great people!
People says the baby shower was a secret girls’ trip before Meghan and Harry head off for a short trip to Morocco. Harper’s Bazaar says she landed on Friday for five nights of typical New York nonsense with her gal pals. A snitch said the trip was planned months ago and is her first time in NYC since getting married:
“The trip is a lovely chance to catch up with friends and spend time in a city she loves. This will be the last time a lot of them will see Meg until after the baby is born so it’s nice to share precious moments.”
Meghan also hasn’t been a hermit at her hotel. Her friend Jessica Mulroney was in town for an appearance on Good Morning America, and she and Meghan went to SoHo for macarons, tea, and I’d imagine plenty of tea on how bitchy the royal staffers get anytime she tries to FaceTime them at the crack of dawn. Another snitch said Meghan got a ton of loot from her baby shower, which was attended by a slew of friends like former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer:
“It’s been a relaxing visit. Nothing beats face time with your friends. Meg will be flying home refreshed and relaxed—and with a lot of new baby clothes.”
Now, in case you’re wondering: NO, British royals don’t normally have baby showers since the British taxpayers pay for all the shit they would ever need, so add this to the running list of ways Meghan is out to destroy the monarchy. That being said, I doubt Duchess Camilla is going out of her way to buy Meghan a Diaper Genie, so who can blame a chick for relying on the 13 colonies to come through when she needs them?
