Guests walked away with Cuyana totes filled with some of Meghan's favorite brands
Meghan Markle’s friends feted her with the ultimate New York City-style baby shower on Feb. 20 — and the guests themselves were also treated to something special.
Attendees, including Serena Williams and Amal Clooney, walked away with Cuyana totes filled with some of Meghan’s favorite brands, including Jo Malone’s “tangy” Green Tomato Leaf scented candle, Tatcha Rice Enzyme Powder and Susanne Kaufmann Body Butter. Also in the “thank you” bags were products from Honest Beauty and Rodin.
During the shower, held in the penthouse of The Mark Hotel, Meghan and her friends enjoyed a bespoke menu provided by the hotel’s head chef and culinary expert Jean-Georges Vongerichten,” who customizes just about everything,” says a hotel spokesperson. To drink? Mostly mocktails, adds a guest.

The group also enjoyed a flower-arranging lesson. Creations were then gifted to pediatric cancer patients at Ronald McDonald House Charities of New York and others through the charity Repeat Roses.
With just weeks to go before their new baby arrives, Meghan and Prince Harry are keeping a busy schedule, having just wrapped their three-day tour in Morocco. Next Tuesday, they will join Prince William and Kate Middleton for a special palace party hosted by the Queen in honor of Prince Charles’ investiture.

“She’s a worker; she loves to work,” says a source. “So for her, it’s just fun.”
