Inside Meghan and Harry’s ‘gender neutral nursery’, expert reveals predictions for Archie


Prince Harry and former-actress Meghan Markle unveiled baby Archie to the world last Wednesday.

In an Instagram post the couple revealed the chose the name Archie Harrison for the little bundle of joy.

Now an expert has weighed in on their predictions for the baby’s nursery.

This includes designing a gender neutral nursery for their baby.

Stine Brogaard, Marketing Manager at high end baby brand, Stokke said: “Meghan and Harry appear very modern in their approach to parenting and it is likely that they will create a less traditional, gender neutral nursery.”

One way in which the modern couple might create a gender neutral nursery for Alfie is by ditching tradition pink for a girl and blue for a boy.

Instead of these colours, which are associated with the genders, a neutral palette might be on the cards for the couple.

“One way of doing this is to use the Scandi look of whites, greys and beiges,” Stine said.

She added: “These give clean lines, are chic, sustainable and are complemented by an array of colours; the Scandi look can make a nursery feel warm, inviting, clean and stylish.”

In another strong millennial trend, the couple are likely to choose environmentally friendly furniture for their child.

“Many parents are investing in eco-friendly, natural items that are sustainable, versatile and will last a long time and we expect Meghan and Harry to do the same,” Stine said.

“Parents today want durability, good design, high quality items that can be adapted as the baby grows.

“When it comes to vital structural advice about what is in high demand, it’s important to get items that are easily transferable from room to room and that can get through a standard doorway.

“The baby doesn’t just stay in the nursery, they go from room to room depending on where the parents are and we’ve seen a trend that people want to move their crib or high chair from place to place with no barriers in the way.

“Parents want interior products that look good and are very easy to use.”

Another expert has claimed Meghan Markle will breastfeed Archie in public.

Women’s mentor and clinical hypnotherapist Catherine Raincock made a number of predictions as to how the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, will handle motherhood.

She claimed Meghan is likely to breastfeed in public, something a royal has never done before.

Catherine told Express.co.uk exclusively: “In line with the earth mother approach, I have a feeling that Meghan will do her best to choose breast.”

What is more, she claimed that the Duchess of Sussex would inspire many making such a bold decision.

Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.

She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.

Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.

She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.

She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.

Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.

But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
