The Duchess of Sussex doesn't do anything by halves! A big delivery was spotted arriving at the New York hotel that Meghan is staying in, and they appear to be party favours for her upcoming baby shower. A dozen luxury suitcases by Away were dropped off at The Mark on Wednesday morning, and were carefully packaged and unloaded outside the hotel by assistants.

They look to be cabin size luggage, which means they cost at least £225 each, although Meghan may have wanted to personalise each suitcase for her friends by adding a monogram for £50 each. The more luxurious aluminium cases start from £425.

Tatler has reported that Meghan, pictured on Tuesday, is holding her baby shower in the hotel's penthouse suite, which is spread over two floors and offers stunning views over Central Park. The suite, which costs £60,000 per night, features five bedrooms, four fireplaces, six bathrooms and two powder rooms.

The celebrations will reportedly kick off with a flower arranging lesson, after which guests can tuck into a dessert table especially prepared by the hotel's head chef, Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
