Dutchess Meghan Markle is often admired for her trendsetting, breakthrough style — with no exception when it comes to parenting. Breaking the royal family tradition, which started in 1926, Markle is ditching the Silver Cross Pram for an ultra-modern stroller for son Archie.
While it’s been rumoured a delivery vehicle from London-based brand iCandy was seen arriving at the Sussexes’ Frogmore Cottage home, Bugaboo founder Max Barenburg was thrilled to hear when he heard the Dutch and Dutchess might also have one his designs.
“I’ve been crossing my fingers hard and when I heard they might have one, I was really happy,” said Barenburg in an interview with Daily Telegraph.
Reports are suggesting the Sussexes were gifted a pre-used Bugaboo Fox Classic model ($1,529) — the same model used by Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa and her husband James — by an anonymous friend emerged last month prior to their son’s arrival. Many royal watchers speculate the anonymous friend was Amal Clooney, who used the same wheels for her twins, Ella and Alexander.
Other celebrities who have used Bugaboo to push their high-profile tots include Gwenyth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Madonna and Sir Elton John.
Awarded for its innovative design, the Fox Classic is a versatile, lightweight stroller that is made to grow with your child and features car seat compatibility and an extra large storage for all of baby essentials.

Customer review: “I love my Bugaboo Fox Stroller. It is super easy to use, folds nice a compact and I can fit it in my car with the seat on and it stores well in our small entryway. It also pushes super smooth. I was worried about the snow and then mud when it all melted but I haven't had any issues. It is worth the investment 100%.”

Customer review: “Such a smooth and stylish ride. We wanted something that was built to last, but not too utilitarian. People have said it’s the Cadillac of strollers but it feels more like a Mercedes to us! We love it!”

Customer review: “Although Nuna dropped the MIXX2 name from the 2019 Nuna MIXX, the latest version includes more features than before. The 2019 model includes a removable seat fabric for a mesh backing on warm days, as well as a bamboo insert that helps keep your child comfortable, a no-rethread harness, and an included ring car seat adapter. Otherwise, the 2019 version has all the same great features that have made the 2018 Nuna MIXX2 one of our most popular strollers.”
