So obviously, we know that Serena Williams and Genevieve Hills were at Meghan Markle's baby shower because they were the hosts, but we can also tell you that about 20 of Meghan's friends were invited. Amal Clooney and Gayle King were just a couple of the celebs caught on camera by photographers on the scene. Keep reading to check out some of the other fun details we know about what appears to have been a lovely baby shower. 

Serena was posting selfies the night before.

The photos show Serena on Tuesday, the day before the baby shower, looking cozy casual in clothing from her own line. The baby shower took place in the The Mark Hotel's penthouse suite, which goes for about $75,000 a night. The hotel is known for its black and white striped floors, which you can see in the bathroom selfies.


Yup, Oprah's BFF was there.

Gayle King was one of the guests at the baby shower and according to her, Meghan didn't open any of her gifts because she wanted to wait to open them until she and Harry are back together. That's sweet.

Gayle also says there was an awesome flower arranging activity at the party and was impressed that the arrangements guests made were then donated to Repeat Roses, which gives flowers to hospital patients.


We can tell you about one present we know she got for sure.

Since the box was not wrapped, you can tell that it is a Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 convertible crib in white. Wondering what it looks like? We got ya!

This is what the Duchess of Sussex's baby will be sleeping in.

It's cute, right? In case you are wondering it retails for about $379, which is not bad considering a royal baby might be sleeping in it if Meghan decides to use it.


There was cotton candy up in the penthouse.

A cotton candy machine was delivered in preparation for the baby shower. Yum! Who can resist such a fun treat?

Of course, there were party favors.

Luxury brand Away suitcases were delivered to the baby shower. Presumably to be given away as party favors. Nice!


Amal and George Clooney may have given Meghan the best gift of all.

As you know, Amal Clooney was in attendance. Well, she and Meghan flew home on the same private jet. The $125,000 bill for the flight was paid for by Amal and George. Very generous and very convenient because it made it easy to get all the baby shower gifts back home.

We can't wait to see what Meghan's next baby shower is like.
