After having three children together, Kate Middleton and Prince William are practically pros at raising kids! Which is a good thing for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry because the pregnant Duchess of Sussex is expected to give birth to the couple’s first royal baby this spring. While nearing the end of a pregnancy can be overwhelming, a palace insider recently dished to Us Weekly that Meg, 37, and Harry, 34, have the full support of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
“Both of them have spoken to Harry and Meghan about parenting, giving a few bits of advice ahead of the arrival of their baby,” a source told the magazine. “Having been through it a few times, their ‘tricks of the trade’ have definitely been appreciated. Harry and Meghan are totally open to all help and advice!”
This may come as a surprise to some royal admirers considering there has been recent speculation of an alleged feud between Meg and Kate. But the source insisted that the mom-of-three, 37, has been helping her sister-in-law in any way she can — especially when it comes to baby clothes! “Meghan isn’t so familiar with the baby brands in the UK, so Kate has been able to help with that,” the insider added. So cute!
With the baby’s due date just a few months away, the Suits alum and Harry, 34, might need more than just help with adorable buying baby clothes. A different Us Weekly source shared that the couple has apparently also been hustling to get the baby’s nursery completed in time for his or her arrival.
The insider stated that there’s a “race against time” to not only finish the couple’s nursery but their new home, Frogmore Cottage, as well. However, the latter’s expected completion date is questionable — contractors are reportedly “cutting it close” — but the renovations are thought to at least be done by Easter.
Meg is supposedly planning to decorate the baby’s nursery with white and gray colors. “According to sources who are helping with [their new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern,” royal expert Katie Nicholl recently told Entertainment Tonight. “Don’t expect to see any baby pink or baby blue. Apparently, it’s going to be a monochrome palette — whites and grays, I’m told, will be the color theme for baby Sussex’s nursery.”
Here’s to hoping everything is complete by baby Sussex’s late April due date!
