THE new royal baby will have its nursery decorated with vegan-friendly paint in “gender neutral” colors.
The Duchess of Sussex, 37, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, is said to have chosen the non-toxic paint, which is not tested on animals. Meghan follows a strict plants-only diet during the week and has convinced husband Prince Harry to cut back on meat.
She is also installing childproof windows and a £50,000 eco boiler as part of £3 million renovations to their new home, Grade II listed Frogmore Cottage in the Queen’s Windsor estate in the UK.
Sources say Meghan has opted for on-trend whites and greys for the nursery and has chosen a vegan, odorless, non-toxic, eco emulsion by the Organic and Natural Paint Co.
A source said: “Rather than fashionable Farrow & Ball paint in shades such as Wevet, Peignoir and Pavilion Grey and Salmon, the Sussexes are much more in favor of The Organic & Natural Paint Co’s Auro range for the nursery.”
The Norfolk-based brand was set up by dad-of-two Chris Ridley in 2012, in response to genetic breathing issues in his own family.
The paints are infused with rosemary and eucalyptus essential oils said to help enhance memory, boost immune systems and stimulate creativity. Kensington Palace declined to comment.
