A nursery fit for a king (or queen)

London’s Grosvenor House hotel creates a nursery suitable for a pint-sized royal visitor

The handmade Cascara Union Jack crib, £550

After the fevered speculation about who would create her wedding dress, a new Kate Middleton design dilemma has the nation gripped. Who will create the heir to the throne’s nursery at Kensington Palace?

Tradition suggests the Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge could look to bespoke nursery specialists Dragons Of Walton Street, previously patronised by both Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson. For an idea of what the room may look like, visit the quintessentially British nursery at London’s Grosvenor House hotel, called Suite Dreams, which charges a mere £6,270 for a three-night stay.

Should the parents-to-be fancy something a little more modern, the handmade Cascara Union Jack crib, £550 (above), has an eight-week waiting list, though we suspect they might be able to jump the queue…
