Meghan Markle, expecting her first child with Britain's Prince Harry this year, was in New York City for a baby shower on Tuesday, according to Harper's Bazaar magazine, which cited unnamed sources.

It was the first trip back to the United States by the American former actress since her marriage to Harry at Windsor Castle last May.

Kensington Palace declined to comment on the reports that Markle, 37, was attending the gift-giving party to celebrate her baby's upcoming arrival.

She was seen stepping out of a luxury hotel on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Tuesday afternoon.

Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, arrived on Friday, Harper's reported, and was due to be guest of honour at the shower at her hotel.
