Baby King George's Nursery Will Be 'Africa Themed'


Proud new father Prince William told CNN that he and Kate Middleton’s child — the Baby King of England — will spend his helpless infant days in a nursery decorated with the theme of “Africa.” It’s important to note here that when I say “Africa,” I don’t mean like all the terrible stuff that the British monarchy has done to the people of Africa. I mean like lions and hippos and cute stuff.

William told CNN that he chose the “Africa” theme because as a child, he so very much enjoyed visiting the continent (which is apparently a monolith? IDK) on vacation. From ABC,

“I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room,” [William] said in CNN‘s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”
“We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We’ll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” he added.
William told CNN’s Max Foster that he hopes his son will one day experience the same Africa that he and Prince Harry did as boys on trips with their parents, Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

Look, Prince William can decorate his kid’s room however he wants. But if my rich, powerful great great great grandfather had famously orchestrated, say, the Trail of Tears and I were a famous person who had just had a baby, in the interest of good PR, I’d probably avoid giving the kid a Choktaw-themed room and talking about it to the media.
