In the early 1980s, the Associated Press provided exclusive details about Princess Diana’s nursery ideas for her sons. Much like herself, the room was classic and filled with one of a kind pieces. “Princess Diana chose a traditional and nostalgic decor for the baby‘s nursery—hand-painted furniture, a mural painted around the bedroom, and a highchair made from the wood of an oak tree felled on the Marquis of Bath‘s Longleat Estate.”
Diana’s two precious sons are now fathers themselves. Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will soon welcome their first child. The newest royal is set to make his or her debut in the spring of 2018. The happy couple is, no doubt, planning their nursery. We have a few ideas to contribute! Here are some nursery ideas that are perfect for a prince.
