We're Pretty Sure This Is What the Royal Baby's Nursery Will Look Like


Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few months, you know that the entire world is anxiously awaiting the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby. The royal couple first announced the pregnancy back in October of 2018, just a few months after their wedding captured the attention of millions around the world. Since then, there's been speculation about everything from the baby's name to the due date of the newest member of the royal family.

With the young couple's first child due any day now, online interior design service Modsy is turning its attention to the royal nursery. In fact, they've gone so far as to imagine what the young royal's space might look like if it were designed by Markle, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Queen Elizabeth herself.

Ahead, take a look inside four potential designs for the royal baby's nursery and shop each individual look.

If Markle designed her baby's nursery based on her own style, it would be an eclectic minimalist space, according to Modsy's vice president of style, Alessandra Wood. Meant to pay homage to her California roots, the room features light, casual pieces that feel relaxed and easy to live in. The furniture is modern for a fresh interpretation of Markle's personal style. If you want to get the look in your own home, seek out neutral pieces and layer up with textures and patterns, Wood recommends.

Prince Harry's Nursery Look

The royal baby's nursery as designed by Prince Harry would be contemporary and eclectic, Wood explains. "We think Harry's version of the nursery would take inspiration from more masculine, British design and nods to his polo days, as well as his known youthful, fun energy," she adds. The room features playful stuffed animals, bright green walls, and layered rugs. Get the look by sourcing darker pieces of furniture and contrasting these with pops of color and a bit of texture.

Just like Middleton's timeless fashion sense, her take on nursery dГ©cor is likely to feel tailored and thoughtfully put together. Wood calls the look "contemporary with refined touches." A mother herself, Middleton would probably think to add plenty of storage space and practical elements like the bookcases that sit on each side of the window. The room also includes many wicker details in a nod to the nurseries Middleton has designed for her own children. You can create a similar look with natural materials, including rattan and wicker paired with classic pieces and simple, gender-neutral colors.

If Queen Elizabeth were in charge of her great-grandchild's nursery, it would likely be inspired by the English countryside. "The cottage style in the nursery is sweet and inviting with elegant details," Wood notes. The space features a light gray paint color, white furnishings, and wicker baskets for texture. To recreate a similar room in your home, go for classic shapes, plush seating, and rustic woods.
