The famous faces at Meghan's NY baby shower

Mum-of-two Amal, 41, was one of the famous faces in attendance at Meghan's baby shower at The Mark Hotel on Wednesday.

Baby Sussex is due in late April/early May, and the Duchess is said to begin maternity leave sometime in March. Serena Williams and Meghan also grabbed a bite to eat after the shower.

After her shower, Markle made her way back to London - reportedly on a private jet - but not all of her guests had an easy time getting out of snowy NY. The Upper East Side affair took place in the luxury hotel's Penthouse Suite, which in itself costs $100,000 per night and is the largest penthouse in the United States.

Nonoo and Meghan have been friends for years, and Nonoo was seen attending Meghan's wedding last year. Meghan is set to visit Morocco with her husband, Prince Harry for a royal tour starting on the 23rd.
