Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are just three months away from welcoming their first child and the parents-to-be are clearly in nesting mode.

While the £3 million (NZD $5.78 million) renovations get underway at their new Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are going above and beyond to get their baby’s nursery ready.

According to Vanity Fair‘s royal reporter Katie Nicholl, the couple are opting for a gender-neutral, modern nursery for their little prince or princess.

“According to sources who are helping with [their new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern. Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue,” Nicholl revealed during an interview on Entertainment Tonight.

“Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette — whites and greys, I’m told, will be the colour theme for baby Sussex’s nursery,” the royal correspondent added.

It’s believed the gender-neutral palette is yet another indication that the couple haven’t found out the sex of their baby and are instead waiting for a surprise on the day.

Overseeing the production of the baby’s nursery is designer to the stars Vicky Charles, who has decked out the interiors at Soho Farmhouse where Meghan threw her hens party last year.

The 37-year-old is also putting in childproof windows and a £50,000 (NZD $94,200) eco boiler.

While overseeing million-dollar renovations while being heavily-pregnant would be stressful for some, insiders say Meghan is taking it all in her stride.

“She has told friends that this is the most exciting [time], the happiest period in her life. I’m told that she is upbeat and that she is happy,” Nicholl said.
