Meghan Markle reportedly enjoyed a lavish hen party on Sunday, just over two months ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.

According to The Mirror, Meghan and a very close group of friends celebrated her upcoming nuptials by going to a five-star spa and being pampered 'till their heart's content!

It is very thought that Meghan's group included close friends such as former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, who is said to have been instrumental in helping Meghan settle into London life. Other guests include Harry's longtime friend Violet von Westenholz, and stylist Misha Nonoo, who reportedly introduced the couple.

However, two of the most important women in Meghan's life were not present at this important event.

Her soon-to-be sister in law, the Duchess of Cambridge, was reported to be resting while heavily pregnant after a busy week of public appearances.

The Telegraph believes that the chosen spa could have been Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, the destination of choice for celebrities looking for somewhere to unwind.

The Cowshed Spa at the farmhouse offers manicures, pedicures, massages, mud and body therapies, amongst other treatments.

It also has a steam room, sauna room, ice room, hot tubs and swimming pools - so no shortage of ways for Meghan and her friends to relax!

It is not surprising that Meghan chose a relaxing destination for her hen party. Back in July 2016, (just weeks after she and Harry reportedly began dating), Meghan wrote about a bachelorette party she had planned for a friend on her now-defunct blog The Tig, revealing that a classic boozy weekend wasn't really on the cards.

'The thought of running around a city trying to get into clubs and wearing headbands of the phallic persuasion didn't seem very 'on brand' for us,' she wrote.

'I opted instead to woo the bride to be with a more low-key stagette. We ventured off to the sleepy chic island of Hydra.'

When asked about her plans for the party while visiting Edinburgh with Harry, Meghan revealed,“It’s sorted but it will be fun.”

It certainly seems like it lived up to expectations!
