ORIGINAL: Meghan Markle, 37, is living it up in New York City! The Duchess of Sussex, who’s seven months pregnant, was set to enjoy a baby shower in the Big Apple on Feb. 20 thanks to her close friends’ party planning skills. But the night before she was spotted en route to The Polo Bar, a Ralph Lauren restaurant, as was close friend and tennis icon Serena Williams, 37. They twinned in dark duster coats — Meghan specifically wore a navy coat by Victoria Beckham, while Serena opted for a black coat with a pink plaid design running down the sides of the arms. They stayed at the high-profile restaurant for three hours until returning to their Upper East Side hotel, The Mark, according to Daily Mail. The staff at The Polo Bar said they had “no comment” when asked about the dinner date.
Meghan and Serena weren’t alone, as best friend Jessica Mulroney, Suits star Abigail Spencer and the SoHo House global membership director Markus Anderson tagged along for the dinner outing. Everyone’s clamoring to hang out with Meghan, as the royal member is in town for five nights — she arrived on Feb. 15, as ABC News royal contributor Omid Scobie told Good Morning America.
Meghan hid her baby bump for her trip to The Polo Bar, but put it on prominent display right before her baby shower on Tuesday! It was just one of the many times we’ve been granted glimpses of the Duchess of Sussex’s bun in the oven. She recently showed off her growing baby bump underneath an all-white ensemble at the Natural History Museum in London on Feb. 12.
