Controversy keeps dogging Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. It is now about the pram they have apparently chosen for their baby. They are believed to have defied the royal tradition by opting for a brand that has never been used by the Royal family. It seems the Duchess of Sussex are in favor of the luxury brand iCandy, which also happens to be the choice of Victoria Beckham and Andy Murray. Celebrities like Abbey Clancy, Peter Crouch, and Sir Richard Branson also prefer this brand.

However, the Royal household patronizes the traditional Silver Cross pram.

Daily Mail UK reported about the arrival of a delivery van from iCandy at the royal couple's future home Frogmore Estate, Windsor, last week. This has fueled speculations. This pushchair company is 86 years old and its products are popular because of their ease of handling.

The firm received the Queen's Award for enterprise in 2016 and Zara Tindall, the Queen’s granddaughter, is its brand ambassador. Obviously, Baby Sussex will be in good hands.

Silver Cross versus iCandy

In contrast, Silver Cross has been making prams for more than a century, 122 years to be precise. William Wilson established it and made the world's first baby carriage that became the brand selected by the British royal family.

The tradition that began from the days of Queen Elizabeth II went on until the days of Prince William and Kate Middleton. A change now seems to be in the offing if iCandy gains entry into the royal family via Frogmore Estate route.

iCandy have limited pushchairs in their range, and the costliest one is an all-terrain pram.

Daily Mail UK says it has puncture-proof tires and a canopy. It is possible to extend this canopy in order to protect the occupants from the sun. This brand has appealed to the new breed of celebrities and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry cannot be blamed for following the current trend.

Meghan and Harry get ready to welcome their baby

According to The Sun UK, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be welcoming their baby in a matter of weeks and have begun to stock up on baby essentials.

One of these is the pram and the royal couple could break away from tradition. They could opt for a relatively modern brand that has created a niche for itself among modern day people who matter.

Meghan Markle gained entry into the British royal family by marrying Prince Harry. She had an American background. She was an actress and merged into the family with ease by embracing new values and discarding old ones.

However, she has a mind of her own and her own ideas of how to bring up her baby. She might not compromise on certain aspects.
