Dragons lure Duchess of Cambridge into "heir spree"

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge prefers "old-fashioned" furniture for her unborn baby.

Kate and her husband Prince William are due to welcome their first child into the world next month. They have been preparing for the tot's arrival for some time, with the duchess keen to have everything in place when the baby makes an appearance.

She has apparently spent a great deal of time at the upmarket Dragons of Walton Street, in London, where she has been choosing special furniture.

"It's very, very expensive and quite old-fashioned," someone from a neighbouring shop told People.

On the same road is The Nursery Window, where Catherine was spotted perusing with her mother Carole. The royal will move in with her parents once she's given birth and William is said to be adamant Carole and her husband Michael should be very involved with caring for the tot.

"They were happily browsing. Carole was chatting away to the owner," a sales assistant at the store explained. "She bought bits and bobs, accessories mostly and some clothing too."

The duchess has been stocking up on clothes from Trotters, on the exclusive King's Road in London. She has apparently been there on several occasions since her pregnancy was announced at the end of last year and always leaves with an item.

The 31-year-old royal has been spotted looking at a dark cream pram in Peter Jones, where a rocking chair and car seat also caught her eye. She is also known to have bought a wicker crib from a store called Blue Almonds.

"She was so nice," owner Iza Minkiewicz said. "It was completely unexpected."
