Since her official maternity leave began, the Duchess of Cambridge has been busy stocking baby’s nursery with all the must-have’s she and Prince William need before their little bundle’s arrival.
Kate Middleton was spotted out and about all over London with her mum, Carole, picking up trinkets, toys, gear, clothing and accessories for the eventual heir to the throne.

We’ve got details on where the mum-to-be has been spotted, plus the inside scoop on what Kate’s been busy browsing the shelves for. 

Take a look:

Granary Geo Plan Wallpaper

This isn't the first time we've seen Kate at the high-end decor store! She was spotted a few weeks ago looking through blue-inspired patterns but since then, sounds like she's had a change of heart. Last we heard, Kate was taken with their brown and beige patterns — which makes this print a total winner! Geo Plan - Granary printed wallpaper, price TBD

Moses Basket Crib
At Dragon's of Walton Street, Kate shopped the same aisles that Prince William's late mother, Diana, used to outfit her boys' nurseries. After taking a peek at this Moses basket, how could she ever say no? Dragons Luxury Moses Basket, 2,995 (in British pounds)

Handmade Baby Clothes
At The Nursery Window, Kate shopped with her mum for bibs, accessories and clothing for baby. Once we laid eyes on these merino/cashmere handknitted coats, it was over for us. Hope Kate felt the same! Pompom Jack Coat, 80 (in British pounds)

Sand-Colored Stroller
The duchess is a regular at Peter Jones in London, and a nearby shop owner spilled that Kate was eyeing a sand-colored stroller. Perhaps this one? Bugaboo Cameleon3 Pushchair Base Unit and Carrycot, 729 (in British pounds)

Swaddle Blanket
Trotters marks one of Kate's favorite shopping locales. She's been to the exclusive childrenswear store several times. Hope this swaddle blanket made it home with her! Swaddling Jersey Blanket, 14.99 (in British pounds)

Did you shop all over for your nursery needs?

I think that Kate and William are a far cry from the crazy Diana......

The Duchess of Cambridge is certainly a beautiful representation of royalty.  Can't wait to see pictures of the baby. 



I find it really amazing how the lovely kate and family are not mobbed and don't

need all the attention like the movie stars do here in the states.

The stars here just attract all the attention and I feel its all their fault that the

paparazzi chases them about its what they look for.


The British people are to refined to stand for that.

I think Kate and William will be great parents. The are a handsome couple. Diana would be very proud of her son and daughter In law. Too bad she was robbed of this experience.

The only thing I wish the news, papers, internet, etc would stop is calling the baby a 'baby bump'.

Kate has shown nothing but class all thru her pregnancy.  England can be very proud of her. 

  And here, we are stuck with the kartrashians.  I for one, am enjoying not seeing or hearing about them.   See  "E", MSN, etc. we can live without them!!!!!!!

Diana would be so proud. Wish she was here to enjoy her grandchild.

    5 reasons your family needs a weekend without any plans

    Remember the concept of weekends being a time for rest, relaxation, and togetherness? No? Us either.
