    Kate Middleton was spotted enjoying a girlie day in Norfolk over the weekend, as she prepares for the arrival of the royal baby. So it came as no surprise to hear that top of her shopping list were accessories for her firstborn’s nursery.

    According to onlookers, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge spend around 30 minutes browsing antiques at the Mews Antique Emporium in the market town of Holt, which specialises in furniture, books and collectables.


    But it seems Kate didn’t spot anything suitable for her little one, as she left empty handed.

    A friend of the royal said of Kate Middleton: ‘Kate has good taste but she prefers a more contemporary style.’

    Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the shop confirmed her attendance saying: ‘The Duchess looked radiant and well. She was happy to mingle with other customers and security was very low key.

    ‘No purchases were made by the Duchess, although some were made by her friends.’

    According to reports, pregnant Kate Middleton often visits the tiny antiques stores, as she sources furnishings for the royal nursery and two homes.

    This comes after it was revealed Kate is planning a £1 million makeover of her planned nursery at the couple’s London home, Kensington Palace.

    It’s thought an interior designer for the new ‘baby suite’ has already been appointed although the details of the creative in charge and the nursery’s design have not been revealed.

    In addition, William and Kate will also add a nursery to the sprawling Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate which they are currently renovating.

    It’s believed the couple plan to use the country mansion, which boasts 10 rooms, including a new garden room, swimming pool and tennis court, as a country retreat, and for family weekends away from London.
