Breaking royal tradition, Kate Middleton has decided to spend her first six weeks as a mother in the comfort of her parents' house. Now, the new issue of Life & Style — on newsstands now — has all the exclusive details inside the baby nursery at pregnant royal's parents’ home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, England.
NEWS: Kate Middleton Makes Her Last Public Appearance with Prince William Before Baby "The Middletons spared no expense on this nursery," a family insider tells Life & Style. "It's a neutral color with a frilly crib and a day bed and overlooks the back garden. Kate's said she'll be sleeping in her own room, so they've put a crib in that room, too." The nursery will certainly have a warm feel and personal touch to it, because Kate and her mom, Carole, have done much of the decorating themselves. They were spotted picking up a $500 Moses basket from London's Blue Almonds on April 18, and Kate checked out furniture at Kingcome Sofas on June 17. And with her July 13 due date quickly approaching, she and Prince William have been feverishly preparing to welcome their first child into the world. William especially wants to make sure his little one is safe and secure, so gates surrounding the Middletons' estate are being reinforced and adjacent fields will be closely guarded.
