The Duchess of Sussex wants Colin Cowie to host celebrations at her home and Prince Harry’s £ 11million mansion in Santa Barbara, California.
Cowie has planned parties for stars such as Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian.
Harry, 36, has ordered a cake from local baker Posies & Sugar, while on the day, guests will enjoy ‘pasture tables’ with locally sourced foods and wines from neighboring vineyards.
It’s expected to be a low key party compared to her baby shower in 2019.
A source said: “Megan wants a small gathering. About 65 people are invited, his closest friends and family. Colin was recommended to her by Oprah who always throws fabulous parties.
Cowie’s mantra is, “The gold standard of service equation is not 1 + 1 = 2. It is 1 + 1 = 3. What can you do to stay ahead of the game? “
In 2018, he was voted Vogue’s # 1 Wedding Planner and Caterer in the Northeastern United States.
Meghan turns 40 on Wednesday.
Before Archie’s birth in May 2019, she flew to New York City to celebrate with friends at the lavish The Mark Hotel in Manhattan, which has apparently not been well received by royal attendants.
This week’s party won’t break Covid rules, with California open.
Although he left the royal family to pursue a “more peaceful life” in the United States, the couple have kept a public profile, including an explosive TV interview with Oprah in March.
Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey could be the one she regrets, according to royal commentators.
The Duchess of Sussex has not held back her conversation with Oprah, but her allegations may have ‘burned bridges’ at a time when healing might have been a better option.
Speaking on the Channel 5 program, royal author Tom Quinn said: “I think the problem for Meghan was that she was angry, she was upset.
“I think she thought that by stepping into the royal family she could shake them up and they would love that, she would do things Meghan’s way. “
He continued, “When that didn’t happen and she ran into what she saw as the reaction forces, it upset her so much that, this interview was her way, I think. the only way for her to get revenge and plead the case as she saw it.
“But I think later she’ll think I shouldn’t have burned my bridges at this point.” “
