A 50-Year-Old Stroller and 4-Year-Old Cake: Princess Kate and Prince William Look to History for Princess Charlotte's Christening
The royal parents employed the Queen's vintage pram and their own wedding cake for their daughter's special day
In addition to the outfit worn by her nearly 2-year-old son, Prince George – which echoed the one William wore to meet his then 1-day-old brother Prince Harry in 1984 – there were several other key nods to history.
As Majesty magazine’s Joe Little notes, Kate pushed her 2-month-old daughter in a Millson stroller used by Queen Elizabeth some 50 years ago for her younger children, Princes Andrew and Edward.
“We are of course thrilled and honored that we have in a small way contributed to Princess Charlotte’s christening,” Fiona Cairns, who created the original fruit cake, told PEOPLE.
