The latest reports around them claim that Meghan, who is expecting her first child in the next two months had a baby shower in NY recently. To complicate matters even more, she's also pregnant with her first child and dealing with all of the emotional and physical changes while in a very advanced stage of her pregnancy.
No word yet on a baby shower in the United Kingdom.
"The trip is a lovely chance to catch up with friends and spend time in a city she loves", an insider said.
Speculated guests at the baby shower are believed to be Meghan's close pals - tennis legend Serena Williams, Suits star Sarah Rafferty, designer Misha Nonoo, brand consultant Benita Litt, and college pal Lindsay Roth.

The only odd thing about this otherwise unremarkable love story is that he was an aging fashion designer, and she was his cat. A weight-loss book he published in 2005 - "The Karl Lagerfeld Diet" - consolidated his status as a pop culture icon.
Although she now lives in the U.K., Meghan has maintained close friendships with those who were by her side before she was royalty.
She appears to be loving being back in the fashionable city, a place she frequented as an actress, and has the style to prove it! Royals typically forgo celebrating a coming baby with a shower as a sign of humility as "there's nothing they can't go out and buy themselves". The 37-year-old Duchess stepped out for a fancy dinner at Ralph Lauren's restaurant The Polo Bar. She also carried a brightly hued gift bag, presumably filled with something for the Duchess of Sussex's little one.
It comes after Meghan's husband Prince Harry, 34, recently admitted impending fatherhood has made him more aware of his "responsibility" to the world. Children Prince George and Princess Charlotte are on their half-term break from school. "Meg will be flying home refreshed and relaxed-and with a lot of new baby clothes", they added.
A source told Harper's Bazaar as cited by E News that Meghan's trip to NYC was planned months ago.
