- But the decision to get one may break with royal tradition of using a Silver Cross
- Kate and William used a ‘Balmoral’ Silver Cross for their children
Luxury pram company, iCandy, were spotted making a visit to the Duchess of Sussex’s new home leading to speculation that she will be choosing to use their pushchairs with her new baby
Meghan Markle appears to have chosen a pram popular with celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and Andy Murray for her royal baby.
A car from iCandy, which sells pushchairs costing up to £1,500, was spotted pulling up at the Frogmore Estate, Windsor, last week.
The move would break with a royal tradition started by the Queen’s grandparents, George V and Mary of Teck, who bought a Silver Cross buggy for their son and the Queen’s father George VI. The pram was then used by the Queen herself, Princess Diana, and Kate.
The ‘luxury’ pushchair company’s car – emblazoned with their logo – was seen pulling up at the Estate’s security gates.
It was waved by guards onto the road leading to Harry and Meghan’s future cottage.
The 86-year-old firm’s buggies have proved popular for being easy to use and fold.
They received the Queen’s approval in 2016, and also employ her granddaughter Zara Tindall as an ambassador.

There are just six pushchairs in their range, including the most expensive iCandy for Land Rover, an all-terrain pram with puncture-proof tyres and an extendable canopy that will shield passengers from the sun.
iCandy prams have also been used by celebrities Abbey Clancy, Peter Crouch, and Sir Richard Branson.
