Meghan Markle baby shower: The Duchess of Sussex celebrates in NYC

Meghan Duchess of Sussex arrives to view the gala performance of The Wider Earth at the Natural History Museum in London

Meghan Markle, who is expecting her first child with Britain's Prince Harry in the spring, was in New York City for a baby shower on Tuesday, according to Harper's Bazaar magazine, which cited unnamed sources. But her sister-in-law Kate Middleton was reportedly absent from the do.

Abigail Spencer, a co-star on Meghan's former TV show "Suits", was spotted at one of the gatherings.

Meghan was pictured spending some time in the museum restaurant before deciding to have a more private lunch across the street at The Surrey Hotel with Ms Spencer.

The Duchess jetted to the Big Apple to celebrate her baby shower with some of her closest friends, including Serena Williams, Misha Nonoo, Markus Anderson, Benita Litt, Sarah Rafferty, Priyanka Chopra and Lindsay Roth. The Duchess wore a pattered peacoat and carried the Matryoshka Locked L bag by Carolina Herrera. During her stay, Meg's bridesmaid and stylist Jessica Mulroney is throwing the Duchess a special baby shower.

As photographers waited outside the Mark, a high-end boxed crib and pink flowers were delivered.

She was apparently seen wearing a grey coat and maternity jeans.

Her solo trip to the U.S. comes just days after five of her unnamed close friends spoke to People in a bid to counter the "global bullying" directed at her by the media. "They are all so excited and can not wait for the baby to arrive".
