Meghan Markle Spotted in NYC Ahead of Secret Baby Shower!

by at .

We're less than two months away from Meghan Markle's due date, which means the Duchess of Sussex is approaching her travel deadline.

(Those who fly private are given a bit more leeway, but you still want to avoid a midair delivery whenever possible.)

Meghan Markle: Bumpin!

Fortunately, Meg is taking full advantage by hopping across the pond for a few days of partying with her American besties.

Yes, according to multiple outlets, Meg is wrapping up a five-day trip to NYC today with a baby shower hosted by several of her closest friends.

Obviously, the "partying" we're talking about here was fairly subdued, as Meghan is 1. pregnant, and 2. a member of the Royal Family.

But despite the diva-like picture painted by Meghan's awful family, the Duchess reportedly favors the simple things in life.

A report published today by Harper's Bazaar indicates that Meg spent much of the past few days enjoying the SoHo district in the company of Jessica Mulroney, a longtime friend and stylist who currently works for Good Morning America.

“The trip is a lovely chance to catch up with friends and spend time in a city she loves,” says a source close to the Meghan, who notes that the trip was planned several months ago.

"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."

Meg's baby shower is reportedly being held this afternoon at Manhattan hotel The Mark.

And what was on Meg's agenda aside from being showered with gifts?

Well, insiders say the Duchess kept a low profile during her time in the Big Apple (largely out of obligation, of course).

She, Mulroney, and several other gal pals were spotted shopping and enjoying tea and macarons near their hotel.

 “It’s been a relaxing visit," says the insider.

"Nothing beats face time with your friends. Meg will be flying home refreshed and relaxed—and with a lot of new baby clothes.”

As for the longstanding rumor that Kate Middleton would be planning Meghan's shower -- well, insiders say that was always bunk.

Apparently, Brits don't do baby showers and actually consider the custom "gauche."

Who knew?!
