An insider told The Mirror: “Meghan wanted to share her special time with those friends who have been with her through thick and thin. She was desperate for them all to get together and have some girly time away from the guys, so her pals arranged to all meet up in New York.

“They have spoiled her rotten while she has been over. They are all so excited and cannot wait for the baby to arrive.”

Meghan also caught up with friends over dinner during her trip. She looked happy as they headed to Ralph Lauren’s The Polo Bar in Midtown Manhattan following her baby shower.

It comes after Meghan’s husband Prince Harry, 34, recently admitted impending fatherhood has made him more aware of his “responsibility” to the world.

Speaking at a Commonwealth youth discussion in London last month, he said: “As someone who is about to become a father, I am acutely aware of our shared responsibility to make this world more resilient and its inhabitants more accountable for the next generation.

“The only way to see real progress is not by chance, it’s by change.”
