Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal baby is here and they've called him Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor! Whilst the royal pair have kept kept pretty tight lipped about a lot of the juicy details, a few snippets of information have been released.
It has been revealed that Meghan and Prince Harry have opted for a modern gender-neutral décor for their baby’s nursery at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. There will be no overdose of pink or blue décor in this royal nursery. Instead the royal pair have gone for a modern colour scheme using white and grey neutral tones. Gender neutral nurseries are big at the moment, with many expecting parents opting for a clean and modern approach to the design of their nursery.

No nursery is complete without the perfect feeding and cuddle space to spend some quality time bonding with your new little one. New parents spend many hours tending to and feeding their newborn baby so it’s always important to have the perfect space set up to make these hours spent in comfort as relaxing for you and baby as possible. We choose the Gaia rocking chair every time as our favourite feeding chair. Not only will it add the perfect contemporary feel to any nursery with it’s beautiful classic style, it’s also ergonomically designed to provide optimum comfort. If that’s not enough, it also comes in a gorgeous grey colour, so gets a big tick from Meghan's white and grey nursery colour scheme, need we say anymore?
Whilst Meghan may have the final say and has her dream vision for her perfect nursery, Harry will probably add his personal touch to the space too. From the very beginning the royal couple have shared their love for travel with each other. So much so the diamond in Meghan’s ring is originally from Botswana, which Harry often refers to as his “second home” and the couple recently vacationed to the African country for her birthday. Harry has spoken about how he went to Africa soon after his Mother died and the country offers him an intense sense of relaxation. So there is no doubt he will want to share his love for this country with his baby by bringing a touch of Africa to the nursery. The aden + anais pacific paradise collection are the perfect African inspired baby essentials to add a splash of colour to the nursery. From blankets to swaddles, this collection will help bring that little piece of Africa to the royal nursery.
The royal family are keeping very quiet about most of the details surrounding the pregnancy and nursery - but one thing we do know for sure is, it will definitely be fit for a Prince.
