Proud parents Harry and Meghan add sentimental touch to Lilibet’s nursery

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have put up a picture of Princess Diana in their daughter Lilibet's room, reports suggest.

The Duke of Sussex revealed his son Archie had one in the AppleTV+ docuseries, The Me You Can't See, when he said: "I've got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said — apart from 'mama,' 'papa,' it was then 'grandma'. Grandma Diana."

Lilibet was born on June 4 and Hello! reported "it would be only fitting" she gets a picture of her grandmother too.

The magazine added that "we have had some clues about the potential décor of the nursery" including that it would probably be environmentally friendly.

Her parents reportedly used an eco-friendly vegan paint called Auro when decorating Frogmore Cottage for Archie.

The magazine added, that like Archie's nursery when the family stayed at Tyler Perry's former Beverly Hills home, that Lilibet's room will likely have an armchair for Meghan to read her stories now she is a published author.

"The armchair positioned next to the cot is ideal for storytime, and we are sure that now Meghan is a fully fledged author, bedtime stories will be particularly important," said Hello!.

Meghan's home in Toronto also gave us "another potential clue" about her daughter's room – in that Meghan may want to arrange her books in rainbow order again.

A photo of her spare room posted to her old Instagram account showed a white bookcase filled with colour-coordinated books.

But previous footage of their new £11m mansion home in Montecito, California, suggested the colour palette will be "tastefully muted", added the magazine.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry will "never end his family rift" as long as he's "under Meghan Markle's thumb", a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke, 36, is returning to the UK for just the second time since moving his family to the US to attend the unveiling of his mother Princess Diana's statue at Kensington Palace.

But the ongoing tension in the family looks set to overshadow the event on Thursday.

Royal author Hugo Vickers said that Harry had "thrown in his lot with his wife" and "slagging off his family" has not helped.

He said: "The story will not be the actual unveiling of the statue but of the two boys together, that's what everyone will be focusing on."

Mr Vickers claims it is unlikely there will be a reconciliation because Harry "is so under the thumb of Meghan it is not really possible until he emerges from that".

On the chances of a peace offering, he added: "I don't know what they can do under the present circumstances.

"Harry has got to wake up to what's going on. It's a very unpleasant situation and I don't think it's going to be the right moment this week."
