Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's home is officially ready for the royal baby.

The couple moved out of their 2-bedroom home at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace (where Prince Harry proposed over roasted chicken!) and into their family home at Frogmore cottage, 25 miles outside of London. The house has been undergoing renovations for the last 6 months in order to transform it from multiple apartments into a single-family home, and it is finally ready just ahead of the future Prince or Princess's birth. The cottage is particularly special to Meghan and Harry, as it faces Frogmore House, where they celebrated their wedding reception last year.

The newly designed home reportedly infuses Markle's coastal Californian style with Prince Harry's English one, and according to People, Frogmore cottage now has a green-energy center, a springy “floating floor” that's perfect for yoga, and nontoxic paint throughout. And of course, there's an eco-friendly nursery that's been prepped and ready for the royal baby. "According to sources who are helping with [their new home] renovations, the nursery itself is going to be very modern," said royal expert Katie Nicholl. "Don't expect to see any baby pink or baby blue. Apparently, it's going to be a monochrome palette — whites and grays, I'm told, will be the color theme for baby Sussex's nursery." You can see some photos of the home's exterior here. In addition to the gender-neutral nursery, initial reports claimed that the home would have 10 bedrooms, a gym, and its own private yoga studio.

With their move finally settled, it doesn't seem that there's much left for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to do as they prepare to welcome their first child together. "Of course I am excited, very excited," Prince Harry said during a visit with the public earlier this week. And honestly? Same.
