Meghan Markle’s Friends Paid for her $200,000 Baby Shower in NYC



Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle

The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s baby shower which held this week at The Mark in New York was completely funded by her friends.

The baby shower, which Vanity Fair estimates to cost around $200,000, was hosted by some of Meghan’s close friends, Serena WilliamsMisha Nonoo, Jessica Mulroney, and Abigail Spencer.

Williams reportedly chose the elegant, discreet spot despite only being a frequent visitor to Jean-Georges, the hotel’s in-house restaurant.

Serena Williams reportedly paid the bill, which is priced at $75,000 per night.

According to Tatler, The Mark is the largest Penthouse in the US. The two-floor accommodation features five bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms and two powder rooms, with stellar views over Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Another friend was said to have covered the $100,000 bill for the private jet that brought Meghan to New York.

    Black people join the royal house and we won’t catch a breath again with overtly loud, vain and extravagant lifestyle. How much did Kate’s baby shower cost if at all she’s had any? So typical!

      Which one is black people? What kind of silly statement is this? Is Meghan Kate? Next time, you can put yourself down but please leave “Black people” out of it. Tanx

      @ijebujesha, I feel sad for you. Please note that Meghan had a thriving career in Hollywood before she got married. She had and still has her own wealth, has friends who also have worked hard to earn their own money. Can you please point out Kate’s career to me? Does Kate have the right to use taxpayers’ money for a shower? That being said, did Meghan or anyone tell you about the shower? If not for paparazzi that has a thing for Meghan, would you have heard a thing? By the way, all this information isn’t news from the horse’s mouth, so it might have some element of untruth to it.

      Take it easy before you write off a whole race- your own race.

      Normally with the Royals they do not have showers because they can buy anything
      they want.. This was more of a get-together for her friends because they will not be
      seeing her for awhile. As far as Kate is concerned she did not want one, several
      people gave her gifts specially made for George and the others but other than
      that there was nothing. Her sister Pippa did not have one either.

    Why didn’t her friends just travel to England and have it there. They all can afford it. She’s supposed to have her baby shower with her friends and new family. Her sister in-law was absent. Looks like the relationship is already strained. Not a good start.

    #yimu. If she was still hustling on Suits would they spend that much on a shower for her? Radarada

      If she was still hustling on suits, she would be living in the US, the paparazzi won’t be following her around and she wouldn’t need to put in extra effort and money to keep her baby shower private. Levels have changed, and if her friends want to fly her to NY on a private jet and host her in expensive hotels, all expenses paid, why not??? Her husband obviously didn’t have an issue with it.

    I am so glad that her friends are showing up for her despite all the flak she’s had lately. This should even make her haters even more angry. Whoever God has blessed!!
