Meghan Markle had an extravagant baby shower in New York City this week that reportedly cost $200,000. And her guest list was just as posh—Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Abigail Spencer, and did I mention Amal Clooney? It was a star-studded affair, but there was one very important person missing from this NYC getaway. Say it with me, Kate Middleton! So where was the Duchess of Cambridge during Meghan’s celebration?
Kate was enjoying a ski trip with Prince William and her children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis— because it’s a school holiday this week in England. The children are expected to go back to school on February 25.
According to royal source, “The Cambridges have jetted off on a secret snow-filled holiday for some much-needed family time together.” It’s school break for George and Charlotte, and the royals had apparently planned this trip for a while.
It’s unfortunate that Meghan’s sister-in-law missed out on the celebrations, but we can take solace in the fact that the Cambridges might have the opportunity to recreate this gem of a photo from their 2016 ski trip in the French Alps.
Kate will attend the second shower in England in a few weeks!
