The Duchess of Sussex, 37, joined her close friends at the hotel, The Mark in Manhattan to celebrate the birth of her first child.
A team of florists was pictured delivering hundreds of pink roses to the hotel ahead of the special occasion - could this be a clue that Meghan and Prince Harry are having a girl?
Other flowers included orange and yellow tulips and an an orange tree, which apparently in Eastern history have come to symbolise prosperity, happiness and luck.
Royal reporter Omid Scoobie revealed that the low-key baby shower was a chance for her to get together with her oldest friends who live in the US.
He also told Good Morning America: "Today's baby shower is a reunion of sorts for Meghan. [Guests] include best pal Jessica Mulroney, actress and close pal Abigail Spencer has flown in and Priyanka Chopra is supposed to be flying in especially for this from London Fashion Week."
He added, "It'll be a celebration with her closest friends."
The Duchess has spent a few days relaxing in New York with her best friend Jessica.
On Saturday, they paid a visit to The Laduree in SoHo for macarons and tea.
"It was on the Saturday but it was a totally private visit," a source at the high class cake shop said.
Meghan has previously opened up about how much she loves the bakery, calling it a "little slice of Paris in the middle of New York City."
During the trip, Meghan also enjoyed some shopping trips in the city, and is said to have purchased plenty of new baby clothes to bring back to the UK.
There were 15 guests at the party and it is happening just days before Meghan's UK baby shower which will be held at her home in Windsor.
It's not known yet if Kate Middleton - her sister-in-law - will attend after rumours of feuds and arguments. It's thought she was planning a big baby shower surprise for her sister-in-lae before they fell out.
