Meghan Markle may have been California raised and a working girl in Toronto, but prior to becoming a royal, New York City had her heart! The Duchess of Sussex reportedly made a secret trip to the Big Apple over the President’s Day weekend. It was the first trip back for the royal, who is expecting her first child with husband Prince Harry in two months, since her royal wedding on May 19.
During her stay, the 37-year-old got in some quality time with her close friends who live stateside. NYC is the perfect place for the royal to have her first trip back to the states. Meghan spent time eating, taking in the sites and sharing experiences with friends while in the city.
In 2015, the creator of The Tig took to her blog to open up about her love of the city. Scroll through to look back at some of Meghan’s favorite NYC hotspots.
Meghan and a couple members of her girl squad hit up this sweet destination during her recent trip to NYC. It was reported that the Duchess and her friends snacked on the Soho hotspot’s famed macaroons and sipped tea.
It’s no surprise that the space is one of the royal’s favs. The themed tea room and private spaces are perfect for low-profile moments.
