Famous for their coach-built baby carriages, Silver Cross has long been a favourite of the Royal Family.
Kate and Wills kept up the tradition by ordering a buggy from the British brand when Prince George was a tot. Although the couple declined to reveal the exact model they picked for their son, the company's CEO was delighted to work with the duo who customised their purchase with an insect net.
'The Duchess of Cambridge is certainly helping us with our product development', said Nick Paxton, CEO of the brand back in 2015.
'It was a very good summer when Prince George was born. Our head of design went to the Middleton family home and presented it to the Duchess' mum. We did a full demonstration so that the product was safe and used correctly.
'Safety is a top concern in all of our products but obviously for a future monarch. It was made in the same manner as all of our products, it was just made with that extra special ingredient for an extra special customer.'
Follow the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's lead by bagging the Hauck Travel System which comes with a car seat, changing bag and foot muff from Aldi for just £99.99. Silver Cross' similar Wave Granite buggy will set you back £995.
