The Duchess of Sussex is said to have decided against hosting a baby shower ahead of the birth of her second child with Prince Harry.
Meghan is due to welcome a baby girl with her 36-year-old husband in summer 2021 but feels that in Covid times a celebratory shower isn’t ‘appropriate’.
Previously an advocate of the popular event, the 39-year-old celebrated her first born, Archie’s impending arrival with a luxurious baby shower in New York in May 2019.
The $200,000 celebration was arranged by her friend and tennis legend Serena Williams at The Mark hotel in New York.
However it seems as she awaits to give birth to her baby girl, Meghan has a different idea of how she wants to celebrate for the second time around.
US Weekly's Christina Garibaldi claimed the Duchess felt there was currently too much ‘strife in the world’ to host a shower.
“Meghan doesn’t feel a big baby shower with gifts is appropriate right now,” she told the US publication. ““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,” she explained.
Christina also proposed that the royal couple are fully focused on making sure that their son is prepared for his big brother duties.
"The couple have been readying their son, Archie to be a big brother with a source telling us they're giving Archie all the attention he can handle right now as he eagerly awaits the arrival of his baby sister," she added.
This follows on from reports Meghan is planning to give birth in the comfort of the California home she shares with Harry, after her plans for a home birth with Archie were cancelled when she went overdue.
