"The duke and duchess are looking forward to the visit which will highlight the vital roles that girls' education and youth empowerment are playing in, and shaping, modern Morocco", Kensington Palace said in a statement. It has reportedly been organized by her good friend Jessica Mulroney, who arrived in the Big Apple last week from her home in Toronto, where Meghan used to live, to work on TV show Good Morning America.
Meghan has been in NY for a few days now, spending her time with Jessica.
Meghan won't have that much time in NY, however, as she and her husband Prince Harry are scheduled to make a trip to Morocco from February 23 to February 25.
Meghan was also seen shopping at the high-end children's clothing store Bonpoint. Harper's Bazaar is reporting that the trip was planned for months, as a way for Markle to relax and spend some quality time with her friends before she becomes a mom.
Previously, it was revealed that baby showers were against Royal protocol as they imply that they're in "need" of items.
The party is taking place at a hotel on the Upper East Side with 20 of Meghan's close friends, and has been arranged by her BFF, stylist Jessica Mulroney, according to reports.
The last time members of the royal family paid a visit to New York City was four years ago.
After returning to the United Kingdom on Wednesday, the Duchess will soon make one final trip before the birth of her first child.
