Meghan has returned to London, after a special trip to New York City where she head her pre-baby celebrations.
Among the guests at Meghan’s New York baby shower was her close friend Gayle King. King was on CBS This Morning, where she talked about what it was like to attend the party,
Gayle said that while Meghan received many gifts, which is sort of against royal protocol. But she didn’t want to open them in front of everyone. And there is a totally understandable reason!
When Gayle was asked what she gave Meghan, she said, “If I told you, I’d have to kill you because she didn’t open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together.” (Awww, how sweet!)
“I don’t know what everybody got.
“I think I got something I think is very nice. But you know, she’s a very private person. I think she should decide what she wants to say about this.”
King also revealed some other details from the shower, which she said was put together by Meghan’s close pals Serena Williams, Genevieve Hillis and Jessica Mulroney.
She said: “I hope she won’t mind me sharing this because I’ve never seen anything like this at a baby shower.
“They did flower decorations. They had flower arranging, they brought in somebody to explain how to arrange flowers.
“We all each made an individual vase.”
“Meghan…got in touch with an organization I’ve never heard of but Repeat Roses, and all of those were donated to different charities.
“I thought that was a very sweet thing. It just speaks to who she is. She’s very kind, she’s very generous, and a really, really sweet person.
Meghan donated all the flowers to different charities via an organisation called Repeat Roses, who takes flower arrangements which may otherwise be thrown away and donates them to places where they could make a difference.
The company’s website says: “On your behalf, Repeat Roses will match and deliver your flowers to patients in hospices, cancer treatment centres, mental health facilities, domestic abuse and homeless shelters.”
Within hours, your flowers are making a positive social impact within the community.”
