Back in 2019, the British media whined, cried, screamed and wailed over the fact that the Duchess of Sussex traveled to New York for several days of rest, relaxation and a baby shower. Amal Clooney gave Meghan a ride to New York on a private plane, and Meghan’s friends gathered at a hotel for several days to have spa treatments, lunches, flower-arranging classes, etc. It was just girl-time, and as we now know, Meghan was going through an extremely tough time in those months, and had basically been suicidal because of all of the toxic abuse she had been subjected to for months. But for the British papers, in that moment, it was yet another storyline to rip Meghan to shreds. Well… is Meghan going to have a baby shower for Lil’ Montecito?
Perfect priorities! Pregnant Meghan Markle has decided not to have a baby shower — and for the best reason.
“Meghan doesn’t feel a big baby shower with gifts is appropriate right now,” a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. “There is too much strife in the world. She and Harry have been so involved with humanitarian issues, they both feel their time and resources can be used for a better purpose.”
The insider adds that the Suits alum, 39, “has the support of her friends and, most importantly,” her husband, Prince Harry. “Harry is the ideal partner, taking care of Archie and working to provide for his family,” the source says.

Whenever I cover celebrity baby showers, I’m surprised by how many unwritten rules there are about baby showers in general. Like, it’s apparently pretty gauche to do big baby showers for your second or third child. You’re not supposed to ask for a lot of stuff after the first child. And for celebrities, it seems like baby showers are more like “ladies’ lunches” with gifts for the guests and all of that. Anyway, I’m not really surprised that Meghan isn’t jazzed about a baby shower at the moment because we are still dealing with a pandemic and people probably don’t want to fly in just for a baby shower and all of that. Plus the other stuff, Meghan feeling like now is not the moment. Of course, the thing about the Montecito royals is that “royal sources” don’t know what the hell the Sussexes are up to. Meghan could totally have a baby shower and the British tabloids would never find out.
