Princess Charlotte Has a Millson Pram Fit for a Princess

Would you pay this much for a pram?

By Fiona Purcell
There is no doubt it is the Rolls Royce of prams.
The Duchess of Cambridge pleased the gathering crowds of royal fans waiting outsite the Church of St Mary Magdaleneon in Sandringham on Sunday when she arrived on foot with Princess Charlotte, for the baby princess’s Christening.
The Duchess was pushing her nine-week-old daughter, Princess Charlotte in a refurbished Millson baby carriage, which had previously been used for her uncles; Prince Edward and Prince Andrew in the 1960s.
The gown the little princess wore was also a hand-me-down, a Royal Christening Robe that was worn by her big brother, Prince George at his Christening in 2013.
The Kensington Palace Twitter account posted a photo of the pram being used previously.
The silver-wheeled Millson Prince pram is no longer produced after the Millson brand collapsed in the the late 1960s. However the vintage prams remain popular, often selling on eBay to eager parents keen to restore them to their former glory.
Retired pram expert Alison Richardson who has supplied traditional-style prams to the BBC for the period program, Call The Midwife describes Millsons prams to The Daily Mail as being fit for a princess, "Millson were coach-built prams, the very top of the range. There is no doubt it is the Rolls Royce of prams."
For parents who'd love to have their own regal baby carriage, Silver Cross sell the classic prams in Australia for a cool $4000. Of course, as is the "royal effect" all prams from their classic range of their 'Kensington' and 'Balmoral' prams are now sold out.
If it's any consolation, their replica doll prams are still available online, which you could buy for your kids for a mere $1000.
We know; keep dreaming, right?!
