The Duchess of Sussex enjoyed a beautiful but activity-filled time amidst the celebrations centered on her 7 months old pregnancy.
Former-model-turned-royalty, Meghan Markle was spotted some nights back in what could be considered her first time back in New York after her royal wedding with Prince Harry in 2018.

Rumors of her pregnancy was reported months after their wedding and it turned out to be true. The expectant mother stepped out of her black SUV while looking forward to having a swell time with her intimate friends. She was escorted by one of her security officials as they made their way through to Ralph Lauren’s exquisite restaurant, "The Polo Bar."
Anderson Markus, a close friend of Meghan met the duo at the entrance of the restaurant, held her arm in the crook of his as he guided her inside. "The Polo Bar" is said to be a favorite of President Donald Trump.
Markus wore a denim jacket as well as a pink scarf wrapped around his neck and a navy blue beanie on his head. On his feet, Markus had on a pair of brown shoes.

The baby shower was also private while alongside Serena and Jessica, the likes of Misha Nonoo and Priyanka Chopra were in attendance amongst other guests. The expectant mother despite her royalty can be said to have high regards for privacy as she earlier enjoyed a private Valentine's Day celebration with her husband.
