Royals in their Prams Part One

Today we’re looking at a collection of photographs of the British Royals in their prams for no other reason than they are adorable.  We’ll take a look at some European Royals later this week for Part Two.

So we’ve got four generations of British Royals to check out. Up until Princess Eugenie, each these royal babies (including future royal The Hon. Diana Spencer) is in a Silver Cross pram. Silver Cross has been making these classy looking prams for the British Royals since the 1920’s. One of their most famous styles is, not surprisingly, called The Balmoral. The company describes this style as “quite simply the Rolls Royce of prams.” Indeed. Check them out here.

Princess Elizabeth

This photograph of Princess Elizabeth of York was taken on the grounds of Windsor Castle in April 1927, when the future queen was one year old.

Prince Charles & Princess Anne

Skipping ahead quite a bit, how adorable are Prince Charles and Princess Anne here?? This picture was taken on the grounds of Balmoral.

Prince Andrew

That’s Prince Andrew being pushed along by Queen Elizabeth and a young Princess Anne. Looks like he’s enjoying the view:

Prince Edward

Prince Edward got his turn in the pram a few years later:

The Honourable Diana Spencer

You may recognize this photograph of the future Princess of Wales sitting in her pram. Looks like she just dropped a little white toy over the side:

When Diana spoke to Andrew Morton for Diana: Her True Story she told him that her first memory “was really the smell of the inside of my pram. The hood was plastic.”
Skipping ahead to the next generation, we recently discovered this picture of Princess Beatrice being pushed by Princes William and Harry during a polo match. Cute!

Sadly no picture of these two Princes has been made public as far as we know, but we’ve got to believe that they got rides in a Silver Cross pram during their time at Balmoral as babies. Let’s hope those pictures show up one day.

And lastly, that’s Savannah Philips in a modern and sporty pram all tucked in. She was at a horse show with Princess Anne and Autumn Philips:

Speaking of Autumn, we should be getting some baby news very soon.

  1. Interesting how the young Royals are moving away from the pram and into a more all-terrain type of vehicle. The pram shots really are special…thank you Royal Post!

  2. Great photos, it’s so nice to see the pram photos! I love Silver Cross-such a tradition. Pram photos are always classic 😉 Thanks for bringing this to us Royal Post!

  3. Some of those prams are not Silver Cross, look at http://www.vintagepramfan.com as there is a post on there explaining not all prams are Silver Cross.
