The famous faces at Meghan's NY baby shower

The Mark New York Hotel

The Duchess of Sussex reportedly got flown home on a $43 million private jet arranged by a-lister friends George and Amal Clooney. But as royal commentator Katie Nicholl reminded Fox, the shower didn't take pace on the taxpayer's dime - the bill was footed by her high-profile friends, including Serena Williams, who can spend her fortune any way she feels like.

"Repeat Roses was so honoured to help petal-it-forward with a baby shower experience for the Duchess of Sussex and her thoughtful friends by creating a ripple effect of kindness across the community", Repeat Roses CEO Jennifer Grove told PEOPLE.

"I love how Beyonce in particular is very aware of what's going on in the media and how she makes powerful statements so subtly".

Meghan Markle's NY baby shower may have evolved into a paparazzi-fied event, but she did manage to stay private on one thing. Although we don't know whether this was the same one that she took back - the private jet that she did take back the United Kingdom is thought to have cost $125,000 to charter for a single flight as reported by the Daily Mail.

Following her dinner with Serena Williams and Jessica Mulroney on Tuesday, a whole host of Meghan's famous friends showed up for the shower on Wednesday.

According to the report, the party was held in the hotel's penthouse suite that costs $75,000 per night, making it the most expensive hotel room in the U.S. So, how exactly has Meghan Markle's style of dress evolved since marrying her prince? Considering Meghan is having a second shower back in England, which could take care of all the people in her life who couldn't make it to NY, this is essentially a non-issue. How much did you spend on your baby shower?

"Amal was already flying back and covering all the costs so it made total sense".

King was just one of many celebrities to attend the party at Manhattan's Mark Hotel, including Amal Clooney and Serena Williams - both of whom also were at her May nuptials to Prince Harry in England a year ago.
