However, rumors reveal that she’s ignoring critics and plans to have a second baby shower in London.

It’s alleged that Duchess Meghan, 37, is planning a second baby shower in London but this time she will spend much less. Only “a handful” of her "most intimate friends” are expected at this private affair.

A source said, “Doria is coming to a baby shower here. It will be a small gathering of five or six people.” Her second shower will be hosted at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor where she and her husband Prince Harry are setting up their new home.

However, renovations have been delayed which means the event could be moved to Buckingham Palace. Her first baby shower saw her flying into the US via a private jet for a five-day visit.

Pregnant Royals never have baby showers, sand Meghan tried to make her gathering more of a way for her to reunite with her close friends. The presents she received were just an added cherry on top.
