Meghan Markle is designing the royal nursery at Frogmore Cottage and she wants to use vegan paints to decorate the “gender-free” nursery. She chose paints that have a base of eucalyptus and rosemary oils because these enhance memory and boost the immune system. The baby is due in April and she is following a strict vegan diet during the week. She has persuaded Prince Harry to avoid meat to the maximum extent possible. The nursery will have childproof windows to ensure safety.

News AU reports Meghan does not want to harm any animals in the making of the royal baby’s nursery.

She has gone in for a vegan, odorless, non-toxic, eco paint and has taken guidance from top design director Vicky Charles who has experience in undertaking prestigious projects. The normal practice is to use milk or beeswax in domestic paints. These act as a binder and undergo testing on animals before releasing for human homes which is why she shuns them.

Vegan paints are safe

The Duchess of Sussex is worried about the ill effects of non-vegan paints. She wants the nursery to be safe and has identified a company to supply organic paint. Chris Ridley set up the company in 2012 in Norfolk. It produces baby-safe vegan paints dedicated to nurseries and are free from “toxic” chemicals. His website warns pregnant mothers to stay away from toxic paints when pregnant, especially during the last weeks of pregnancy.

This is because of the chemicals that such paints release for a long time.

Frogmore Cottage will also have the provision of instant hot water throughout the day. There will be an eco-boiler unit installed in the premises to ensure a continuous supply of hot water to not only Meghan Markle and Prince Harry but to the staff and security personnel. The cottage has windows and she wants them to be childproof and for electric sockets to have safety covers.

Safety is Meghan’s priority

According to Express UK, Meghan Markle is worried about various aspects of safety associated with her baby.

She wants to give the newcomer a safe environment. The nursery will be in Frogmore Cottage, where the royal couple will probably relocate before the baby arrives. The property is located in the grounds of Windsor Castle and renovation is in progress to add new amenities like fireplaces, staircases and a floating floor. The cost of renovation will add up to millions.

Meghan Markle, the Hollywood actress, has settled into her new role as the wife of Prince Harry and a member of the British royal family. She is now a would-be mother and is concerned about the wellbeing of her baby and how best to bring it up. Meghan, like some other Hollywood stars, has a preference for all that is vegan.
