Déjà vu! Duchess Meghan is going to celebrate her first child’s impending arrival with another baby shower.

“A second shower is happening in the U.K. with Doria [Ragland],” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “It’s not happening until the first week of April. Duchess Kate will be there, as well as a lot of Meghan’s U.K. friends and family.”

This news comes one month after another insider told Us that the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, would be hosting another baby bash for her sister-in-law, also 37.

“There is still going to be some sort of private baby-centric event for Meghan’s U.K. people, and Kate will host,” the source said. “Her glam people and other relatives will be there. Not sure if it’s a total baby ‘shower,’ but you could probably call it that.”

The pregnant Duchess of Sussex celebrated her first baby shower in February in New York City’s The Mark Hotel. Amal Clooney and Gayle King were among the guests at the star-studded event.

Meghan and her husband, Prince Harry, confirmed in October 2018 that they are expecting their first child, five months after their wedding.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” the Kensington Palace statement read. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”

The new royal revealed in January that she’s due in late April or early May, and while she said that she and the Duke of Sussex are keeping the sex a surprise, a source told Us that the pair do in fact know the gender of their baby.
