Meghan Markle visits Big Apple for baby shower

Meghan Markle is just like any expectant mom, attending a baby shower in her honor just months before the baby’s expected to arrive.

But the Duchess of Sussex made her trip to New York City in as secret of a manner as possible for someone of her position, People magazine reported.

The shower was apparently thrown by a select group of Markle’s friends from before she was part of the royal family.

She was first seen having lunch with a friend in SoHo Saturday before she visited a children's clothing store, US Magazine reported.

Her baby shower is reportedly scheduled for Tuesday, and it will be a private affair with only 15 guests, Vanity Fair reported.

Once she returns home to London, Markle and husband Prince Harry will embark on a trip to Morocco from Feb. 23 through 25 to "highlight the vital roles that girls' education and youth empowerment are playing in, and shaping modern Morocco," according to a release from Kensington Palace, US Magazine reported.
