Duchess Meghan’s baby shower in New York was like a "family reunion", her friend Daniel Martin has revealed.
The former Suits actress – who is pregnant with her and Prince Harry’s first child – jetted across the pond to celebrate the impending arrival of her little girl or boy with her friends and family last week in The Big Apple.
Her long-time pal and wedding day make-up artist Daniel has now spilled that the event was a wonderful occasion and a great way for Meghan, 37, and her friends to catch up following her new life as a princess following her wedding to Harry, 34, in Windsor, England, in May 2018.
Speaking to PEOPLE, Daniel said: "It was exactly what she needed, and it was a reunion for all of us, too, who hadn’t seen each other since the wedding. Snow was falling outside, and it was so cozy – we all sat on couches or on the floor and told stories and caught up. It was like going to a family reunion."
The Duchess of Sussex’s best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney organised the baby shower, which took place at a prestigious Upper East Side hotel, and she was given "tons of advice" by her close pals on impending motherhood.
An unnamed attendee added: "It was all baby talk. She was getting tons of advice."
Guests at the shower included Amal Clooney – the wife of Hollywood hunk George Clooney – Serena Williams, Gayle King, Jessica Mulroney, Misha Nonoo and Abigail Spencer and they all took part in a flower-arranging class with the arrangements then donated to the charity Repeat Roses, which gifts bouquets to hospitals and support centers.
