You won't believe the first gift Meghan Markle received at her baby shower hotel

Wow!

The Duchess of Sussex was inundated with cards and presents at her hotel in New York, but there was one gift that was very hard to miss – a massive crib! The babyletto item was pictured being delivered to The Mark hotel on the Upper East Side, carefully packaged in its box. The three-in-one convertible Hudson crib, which comes in a range of colours, retails for £290 online.

The description on babyletto's website reads: "Delight in mid-century modern appeal with the Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib. Featuring stylish rounded spindles and an open modern silhouette, the Hudson Crib is made with eco-friendly, non-toxic materials backed with GREENGUARD GOLD certification. An included toddler bed conversion kit allows you to seamlessly convert from crib to toddler bed to daybed."

A crib was delivered ahead of Meghan's baby shower

Meghan will be joined by around 15 guests at her baby shower later this week, which will be the first of two; the second celebration is taking place in the UK later in February. The royal's close friends including Jessica Mulroney and Serena Williams are expected to be on the guest list, as is Meghan's former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer, who was spotted having lunch with the Duchess on Tuesday.
