Inside Meghan Markle's baby shower -- and what she saved to share with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle's friends made her baby shower one to remember!

On Wednesday, the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex returned to London after a lavish bash in New York City in honour or her first child with her husband, Prince Harry. Thrown by Jessica Mulroney, Serena Williams and Markle's longtime best friend, Genevieve Hillis -- and reportedly coordinated by Williams' wedding planner, Jennifer Zabinski -- the Duchess' shower took place at The Mark Hotel on the Upper East Side and reportedly featured a harpist and a cotton candy machine.

Guests including Amal Clooney, Abigail Spencer and Gayle King turned out for the celebration, with King detailing the extravagant affair on CBS This Morningon Thursday.

"A good time was had by all. That's what I'll say," King said, before playing coy about what she gifted the mum-to-be.

"If I told you, you know, I'd have to kill you," King quipped. "She didn't open any of the gifts because she wants to do that when she and Harry are back together. So I really don't know what everybody got. I think I got something I think is very nice."

While King wanted to keep much of the soiree private out of respect for Markle, the morning show host did share one sweet detail from the party.

"I've never seen anything like this at a baby shower," she said. "... They brought in somebody to explain how to arrange flowers. We all each made an individual base and then Meghan... got in touch with an organisation that I've never heard of, Repeat Roses, and all of those are donated to different charities."

King revealed that the "very sweet" gesture simply spoke "to who [Meghan] is" as a person.

"She's very kind, she's very generous, a really, really sweet person," King gushed. "So I think her friends just wanted to celebrate her... It was a very, very small, private, affair and just a very special time for her. Because having a baby is a great joy. Let's not lose sight of that."

Another guest at the event, Markle's wedding day makeup artist Daniel Martin, took to Instagram following the shower to share a peek at some of the cookies that were served to guests. Featuring a stork, rattle and bib, the sweetly iced cookies were just one part of the "incredible day celebrating #babylove"

After her shower, Markle made her way back to London on a private jet.
