The media circus surrounding Kate Middleton's pregnancy continues to swarm her every time she makes an appearance in public, and little has changed since the first trimester. People are still more eager than ever to catch a glimpse of the Duchess, as well as her baby bump.
Recently, Middleton was seen out and about with her mom, Carole, as they shopped for pieces for the baby's nursery, according to Vanity Fair. They were both photographed coming out of Blue Almonds in South Kensington where they allegedly made purchases for the royal offspring.
Hello! Magazine published the photos of Middleton and her mother with a baby basket in hand. Based on what the store sells, people are already speculating what the nursery will look like once the decorating process is complete.
"We had the honor of the Duchess of Cambridge visiting our shop on Walton Street," boutique owner Izabela Minkiewicz told Hello! Magazine.
After her appearance at Blue Almonds, onlookers claimed to have seen Middleton shopping for a baby stroller at Peter Jones, as well.
Planning a nursery on a budget
Without a royal fortune, you might have to be mindful of how much you spend on items for your nursery. However, this doesn't mean that your baby won't have a beautiful room to come home to after your delivery! You can easily save money on decorations and furniture by buying second-hand items or accepting hand-me-downs from loved ones. SheKnows claims that you can also budget accordingly by making a list of necessities for the baby's room. In the process, you can weed out items that can potentially push you over your limit.
