Well, friends, we've all been fooled. Remember those images of Meghan Markle looking uber chic yesterday en route to her secret baby shower?? Well, as it turns out, the duchess may not have been going to a shower at all. Photos turned up of her friends hauling baby gifts into a hotel, so naturally we all thought that it was party time. However, it looks like Miss Markle may have pulled a fast one on us. 

  • According to Tatler, the elusive shower is taking place today (not yesterday) in one of New York City's most expensive hotels.

    Naturally. 

    A source told Tatler that the party is going down in the Grand Penthouse Suite at The Mark hotel on the Upper East Side. This is the same hotel that Meghan and her BFF Serena Williams were thought to be staying in last night. She's definitely making a lot of other moms-to-be jealous, but, well, she is a duchess after all.

  • The shower is reportedly being thrown by Serena and Amal Clooney, and they're certainly paying the price for it.

    The penthouse suite costs a pretty $75,000 per night. Yes, $75,000. This Sussex baby hasn't even been born yet, and he or she is already getting the royal treatment.

    The room has a rooftop terrace that overlooks Central Park, and the suite itself is just about 10,000 square feet. Not bad a bad place to celebrate a royal-to-be, right?

  • It's shaping up to be one helluva party!

    Any minute now, Meghan and her crew could be popping open the champagne (for the nonpregnant guests) to celebrate the coming of the new royal baby

    The duchess is apparently set to jet back to London today, so it's time to get this party started, right? Hopefully more details about the party will come out, but seeing how secretive Meghan and her friends are being, we aren't going to get our hopes up.

  • So, what we thought was Meghan heading to her baby shower was actually just her having a fantastic time living it up in NYC.

    Not a bad way to take a break from her royal duty madness. So, it really doesn't matter what day her friends throw the shower; we just hope Meghan got to relax and enjoy that unbelievable penthouse. 

    And let's just hope Meghan and Harry don't decide to fool us again on the actual date the baby is born.
