Kate Middleton and Prince William choose a Beatrix Potter themed nursery for Prince George
11 AUGUST 2013Kate Middleton has chosen a Beatrix Potter themed nursery for Prince George, according to reports. The Daily Mail has said that William and Kate have decided against an exclusively traditional nursery of antique furniture and want to decorate the room with characters from Beatrix Potter's famous children's books.
The likes of Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Jemima Puddle-duck and Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail are believed to feature in baby George's nursery at Willam and Kate's apartment at Kensington Palace.
It has been suggested that Kate was been looking at items from Knightsbridge nursery outfitters Dragons' Beatrix Potter collection.
The collection features a number of adorable handmade and decorated items, including the Cambridge Toybox and a Grand Daughter Clock, which are handpainted with the adorable bunny drawings and personalised with a child's name.
The Dragons' cotbed, chest of drawers and chair could all be ready for George when he moves to Kensington Palace, along with the numerous presents his family have already receieved on his behalf.
Kate is said to have enlisted the Duchess of Cornwall's help to ensure that her ideas for the nursery triumph over those at the Palace who want a more traditional room for George.
The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted buying furniture and accesories for her baby in May and admitted that she and William still had "a lot to do" with regard to the nursey. Kate was also seen shopping with her mother at nursery furniture shop Blue Almonds in London's South Kensington in April, leaving with a moses basket.
