Will pregnant Kate Middleton choose a royal baby carriage?

28 FEBRUARY 2013

Could this be the pram that Kate Middleton chooses? Silver Cross, who have supplied baby carriages to the royal family for over a century, have launched their latest product the Silver Cross Surf costing £2,000.

The heritage brand has been designing baby carriages since 1877 and has a strong connection with the British royal family. The Queen herself was pushed around in a Silver Cross pram as a baby, as were Prince Charles and Princess Diana. As parents, they followed suit and chose the Yorkshire brand for sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

The company was granted the royal seal of approval in the 1900s and since then has given classic coach prams names such as Balmoral and Kensington.

The latest to appear, the Silver Cross Surf, has been designed with the help of luxury carmaker Aston Martin and features an Alcantara-lined seat pad, super soft leather trimmed handle and bumper bar. The design of the aluminium alloy wheels is also based on the Aston Martin One-77.

The product has been hailed as 'the world's most exclusive contemporary baby travel system' and only 800 pieces will be sold worldwide through Harrods alone.

Silver Cross chairman Alan Halsall sidestepped the question of whether the Duchess of Cambridge will choose his brand, saying, "We're delighted if any consumer chooses a Silver Cross product."
