Gayle King and Meghan Markle

Gayle King believes Meghan Markle will be a great mother and is just as excited for baby Sussex's arrival

While the anticipation for the arrival of baby Sussex continues to linger, royal watchers (including us) are sitting tight and anxiously wait for the big announcement. Although we can expect Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby to be born any day now, there is no time to lose as every little bit of royal baby information we can get counts. And at last night’s Time 100 Gala CBS, This Morning anchor Gayle King, who was being honored as one of the most influential people in the world, gave reporters a few thoughts of her own in regards to baby Sussex.

“I can’t wait for the baby to be born either,” she said while strolling the red carpet. “You know I think she’s gonna be a great mother,” she added. The 64-year-old media mogul was one of Meghan’s guests at her star-studded baby shower which took place at the Mark Hotel in New York City’s Upper East Side in February. Following the royal fête, Gayle revealed a couple of details about the shower during her show. She told the women participated in flower arranging and noted the significance of the class.

“We all each made an individual vase,” she said. “Then Meghan, at her request, got in touch with an organization that I’ve never heard of, called Repeat Roses, and they were all donated to different charities.” The mom-of-two continued about the royal act of kindness: “It just speaks to who she is. She’s kind. She’s very generous. And a really, really sweet person.”
