She's a powerful lady

Ever since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they are expecting, the world has been watching their every move. Harry had everyone's attention when he revealed he's hoping for a girl, and when Meghan spoke about her pregnancy during the first trimester it was headline news.

It was reported earlier this month that Meghan and Harry haven't opted for traditional colours when it comes to their little one's nursery. Instead, they are said to have gone very millennial with a monochrome palette as they have decided not to find out the sex of their first born.

And now it seems that the Duchess is influencing the world of interiors with her baby's bedroom. According to The Sun, Meghan is 'using vegan paint infused with eucalyptus and rosemary oils' which are said to 'enhance memory and boost the immune system.'

A royal source told the paper: 'Meghan has been looking long and hard at paints for the Sussex nursery.

'Rather than opt for fashionable Farrow and Ball paint in favoured shades such as Wevet, Peignoir and Pavilion Grey and Salmon, the Sussexes are much in favour of The Organic & Natural Paint Co’s Auro range for the nursery.'

Isn't all paint vegan? Apparently not. Some household paints actually use milk or beeswax as a binder. But it won't just be vegan - the brand that Meghan reportedly has in mind is also odourless, non-toxic, eco-friendly.

The Sussexes are also said to be installing childproof windows and a £50,000 eco boiler at their home, Frogmore Cottage, in preparation for their arrival in April.
