Spoiler: Expect LOTS of white wicker.
Since news broke that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their third child, the couple (and Kensington Palace) has been pretty hush-hush on any details surrounding the royal baby. The prince’s name hasn’t been revealed yet, but — given that this is Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second boy — there are a few details we can glean about the baby’s nursery. Here’s what it will probably look like.
1 IT’S A NEUTRAL ZONE.
Considering Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s nurseries have had roughly the same color scheme — and that the newest prince’s sex wasn’t revealed until his birth — it’s a safe bet the nursery sticks to neutral tones too. Imagine a bright, light-filled room with mostly white and cream furniture and a few blue accents (AKA most parents’ worst nightmare, the first time they have to clean the baby’s spit-up).
2 IT WON’T FEEL OUTDATED IN 5 YEARS.
C’mon, this is Kate Middleton we’re talking about. The Duchess of pastels, power pumps, and sensible shift dresses isn’t going to go all Paw Patrol in her kid’s room. “Kate’s decorating style is actually very similar to her dressing style,” confirmed royal expert Victoria Murphy back in 2013. “She likes very simple, very classic, very elegant things.”
3 THERE WILL BE PLENTY OF WHITE WHICKER.
Just before Prince George was born, the Duchess of Cambridge was snapped buying a white wicker Moses basket for the baby to sleep in. Then, when Charlotte was a baby, the princess was photographed sitting on a tiny white wicker chair. It fits with the neutral, classic theme, so expect to see even more of it this time around.
