Meghan Markle has made an unannounced visit to the US.
The Duchess of Sussex touched down in New York City over the weekend, the New York Post reports.
It’s understood the 37-year-old, who is in her third trimester and expected to give birth in April, is in town to celebrate her pregnancy.
A baby shower for the actor-turned-royal will take place on Tuesday local time.
Meghan’s best friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney, is also in town to shower the mum-to-be. The exclusive party will reportedly take place at a hotel on the Upper East Side with Mulroney taking charge of co-ordinating everything.
Us Weekly reports the Duchess was seen at Laduree restaurant and bakery in Soho, having lunch with a friend.
“They were having a lovely time, laughing and talking with each other,” the eyewitness said.
The Palace has not commented on the unannounced visit.
It’s unclear if Meghan will also have a baby shower back in the UK.
It’s believed to be only the second trip Meghan has made to her home country since the royal wedding in May 2018.
Meghan’s first child with husband Prince Harry is expected to arrive at the end of April.
