However, Meghan’s longtime friend, who was amongst the attendees, recently revealed that the event was much less glamorous than it seemed from the outside.

What was happening behind closed doors?

According to the Duchess’ longtime friend, makeup artist Daniel Martin, the baby shower was more like a family gathering than the lavish event the media portrayed it to be.

It was a very intimate and warm meeting of close friends who hadn’t seen each other for a long time. Martine comments:

It was exactly what she needed, and it was a reunion for all of us, too, who hadn’t seen each other since the wedding.
