‘Never seen anything like it’ – Meghan Markle’s pal gushes over baby shower

February 21, 2019

Meghan Markle’s lavish baby shower in New York has been the talk of royal fans everywhere.

The Duchess of Sussex spent the last five days in Manhattan, enjoying a break with some of her closest friends.

And while out there, her pals threw her a lavish baby shower at The Mark Hotel to celebrate the upcoming birth of her first child with husband, Prince Harry .

Many have been desperate to find out what happened behind the closed doors of the bash, but guest have remained very tight lipped about it – until now.

American television presenter Gayle King secured a place on the very selective guest list and has revealed a few details about the special event.

Talking on CBS This Morning, the 64-year-old discussed one of the activities that took place the shower, which was organised by Meghan’s pals, Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney and Genevieve Hillis.

And that activity was flower arranging, but with a very special twist.

Gayle 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 and then Meghan got in touch with an organisation I’ve never heard of, 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."

She added: "It was a very small, private affair and just a very special time for her."

As well as this, Gayle also revealed that the expectant mother was yet to open any of her gifts from the shower as she wanted to wait and do that together with Harry.

Repeat Roses is based in New York and was founded by Jennifer Grove in 2014.

The company collects flowers from weddings and corporate events and redesigns them into small bedside bouquets to be delivered to patients in hospices, cancer treatment centres, mental health facilities, as well as domestic abuse and homeless shelters.

They later return to these donation sites and collect the flowers to compost them, ensuring they are disposed of in the most eco-responsible manner possible.
