Gayle King on Meghan's Baby Shower: Why Duchess Didn't Open Gifts & What Happened to the Flowers

Gayle King delighted Duchess Meghan's fans by dropping some clues about what went on at the baby shower.

Duchess Meghan is now 7 months pregnant, and in time-honored tradition, her friends threw her a baby shower, and it was quite a splendid one.

One of the lucky participants, Gayle King, gave fans a glimpse of the fun activities at the party which took place on February 20 at the five-star Mark Hotel penthouse in Manhattan.

"A good time was had by all. That's what I'll say."

THE ROYAL BABY SHOWER IN NEW YORK

The baby shower was organized by Duchess Meghan's longtime friends Jessica Mulroney, Serena Williams, and her BFF, Genevieve Hillis.

The celebrity guest list included Amal Clooney, Abigail Spencer, and Gayle King - who dropped the dime on a few sweet details on "CBS This Morning".

THE GIFTS FOR THE ROYAL BABY 

King refused to tell her fellow hosts what she had given the Royal baby, and she had a good reason. Duchess Meghan doesn't know.

"She didn't open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together. So I really don't know what everybody got. I think I got something I think is very nice."

COTTON CANDY, ANYONE?

It seems that the party organizer, Jennifer Zabinski, thought of everything, even catering to the pregnant Duchess' sweet tooth with a cotton candy machine and delicious cookies iced as baby rattles, storks and bibs.

The guests were serenaded by a harpist, and as King revealed, a good time was had by all.

ARRANGING FLOWERS FOR CHARITY

King revealed that the celebrity guests at the Duchess' baby shower made flower arrangements which were donated by @RepeatRoses to various charities.

Duchess Meghan flew back to London on a private jet after the party, presumably taking back the many presents to unwrap with Prince Harry.

THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX WAS CRITICISED OVER COST OF BABY SHOWER

British media is an uproar over the baby shower thrown by the Duchess of Sussex's friends, which presumably cost $500,000.

The baby shower was paid for by Duchess Meghan's friends, as were all the expenses of her trip to New York.

Supporters of the Duchess pointed out that she is a millionairess in her own right;  she is not using taxpayers' money and can spend her own money as she wishes.
