(Newser) – High above the commoners of New York City, the Duchess of Sussex will be spoiled with a $200,000 baby shower Wednesday. Serena Williams has reportedly booked the two-floor penthouse suite of the Mark hotel and will be treating Meghan Markle and some of her closest friends to a flower-arranging lesson and dessert tastings with chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, reports Vanity Fair. The guest list is said to include Markle's best friend, stylist Jessica Mulroney; Suits costar Abigail Spencer; and fashion designer Misha Nonoo. Town&Country reports the "surprise" US visit was actually planned for months. Royal reporter Carolyn Durand says Markle, who is seven months pregnant, is expected to fly back to the UK on Wednesday evening. She'll head to Morocco with Prince Harry later this week. (Markle apparently told her dad he broke her heart.)
