Manhattan, NY, United States (4E) – Amal Clooney and Serena Williams threw Meghan Markle a baby shower fit for a royal in New York. The party was attended by celebrities and close friends of the mother-to-be.
Clooney and Williams planned and organized the event, which took place at the penthouse of the Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, E News reports. The luxurious penthouse can be rented for $75,000 a night, which is negotiable according to the hotel’s website.
The party’s hosts reportedly paid for all the expenses, which included indoor arrangements of peonies. These flowers are said to cost more at present because they are out of season. A florist estimated that each stem is most likely priced at $15 or $180 per arrangement.
The penthouse was also decked out in arrays of roses as table centerpieces, which were delivered to the hotel earlier in the morning. Each arrangement is expected to cost $85.
Erin Hill was reportedly tapped to provide the music for the event. According to her website, she commands a starting price of $300 for wedding ceremony services and could go up to $625.
In total, gifts and party favors excluded, the entire baby shower for Markle costs around a whopping $83,000.
Close friends of the Duchess of Sussex were present at the shower, such as television personality Gayle King, designer Misha Nonoo, stylist Jessica Mulroney, Soho House consultant Markus Anderson, and more.
Meanwhile, Markle’s mother was not in attendance at the shower. Doria Ragland was spotted in Los Angeles. The Daily Mail reports that Ragland was seen doing errands in California while her daughter was in New York.
The Duchess of Sussex is set to travel to Morocco this weekend before hosting a second and more intimate baby shower in London.
