Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry are only a few weeks, or months, or days away from welcoming their little royal, and that means they’re in the throes of nesting. The Duke and Duchess are likely filling their nursery with items that are a little out of our price range, but that’s to be expected when George and Amal Clooney are your honorary uncle and auntie.
Ah to be royal, right?
Well hear us out for a second; anyone who has grown a brand new human inside their body–to say nothing of pushing said human out–knows that the whole pregnancy and labour thing is a feat that deserves a reward. Your little one is all the reward you need? We feel that and respect you! But we still have that strong desire to treat ourselves.
With the upcoming arrival of the seventh in line to the throne, we’re looking at high-end baby products that are fit for a future queen or king. And if you feel the need to add at least one of these to your baby registry, or your own personal shopping list, we’re here to say you and your royal family deserve it!
22 things you need to treat your baby (and yourself) like royalty

LUMA CRIBWe know that $3,500 is an outrageous amount to pay for a crib, even if it’s a rose gold, non-toxic acrylic and electro-plated steel bed that is part of a limited edition run and features a specialty number. We also know it’s so, so pretty.

JETKIDS BED BOXIf your kids are going to be flying often like Meghan and Harry’s little globetrotter, this is pretty cool. Little ones can pack their must-haves in the box, then safely ride the carry-on around the airport with an adult pulling them. Once on board, the suitcase turns into a bed. TBH waiting for the adult version as well.

15 STRING HARP WITH BENCHWe have nothing bad to say about this. It’s so stinking cute. Also, if you’ve ever hired a harpist to play a wedding or event, you know that this toy can have a major return on investment. No one has ever hired someone to play the recorder, but a harp? Big money.

OWLET SMART SOCKWe imagine that royal babies, even ones that are waaaaaay down the line for the throne, have aides who watch them sleep all night. We have no proof, but we assume that’s the case. If it’s not, the Owlet Smart Sock tracks a baby’s heart rate and oxygen level while they sleep, sending alerts to parents to ensure they’re up to date and constantly worried about their child.

SNOO SMART SLEEPERDeveloped by sleep specialist Dr. Harvey Karp, the Snoo is a smart bassinet that rocks babies all night, engulfing them in a white noise that mirrors the womb. The Snoo reacts to a baby’s cries, rocking harder and turning up the white noise volume to soothe the baby. It seems like a lot of money for a bassinet until you go a week without sleeping.
