Fit for a Royal Baby: Miami Beach Mansion With Lavish Kid's Room

Everyone's full of questions about the future offspring of Prince William and Kate Middleton: Is it a boy or a girl? What will they name it? Could it be twins?!? But the question on our minds is: Where will it sleep? While it's a little far from the couple's homeland across the pond, we think we've found a bedroom in Miami Beach suited for a future king or queen.

Draped in rich gold fabrics and topped with an elaborate muraled ceiling, this sumptuous suite may seem like an adult's bedroom on first glance, but look closely: That petite seating area strewn with dolls suggests that this could, in fact, be the most opulent child's room on the planet. (Take that, Kensington Palace.)

The rest of the home is just as grand. Known as Villa Vecchia, the 18,000-square-foot gated estate was built in 1928 for Byron D. Miller, former president of the F.W. Woolworth Company. It's since been restored to its original grandeur, fitted with custom crown moldings, glittering chandeliers and artfully crafted terazzo and hardwood floors. The centerpiece of the home is a 150-guest ballroom, which – according to the listing – has hosted distinguished guests including Henry Kissinger, Margaret Thatcher and Bill Clinton. Perhaps Will and Kate could be added to that list? Browse more photos of this palatial property below.
