The birth of one little girl has not only been longed for by her parents, but a nation and the world. Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana will no doubt have a nursery that has been put together by love. Knowing the Duchess of Cambridge's passion for mixing designer with the high street, there will be a wonderful mix of pieces. At Eat Sleep Live we have found a few pieces that we believe would make a nursery perfect for Princess Charlotte. Making her first appearance wrapped in this elegant soft wool baby shawl, Princess Charlotte looked serene. Made by another Nottingham based company GH Hurt & Son Ltd, knitted in a delicate ivory white it's plain centre is decorated by a deep lacy border. Unsurprisingly this shawl is now in unusually high demand, according to its website.
