One day after welcoming their firstborn, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank experienced one of the most nerve-wracking moments a new parent can have as they left Portland Hospital in London with their royal baby – taking their newborn August Philip Hawke Brooksbank for his first ever car ride in his brand new car seat.

The 30-year-old Princess wore a camel coat and tartan Hill House dress for the special day as she revealed her choice for one of a new mum's most important purchases: her baby's carseat! Jack and Eugenie chose an infant car seat from popular brand Cybex for the occasion as Jack carefully drove his wife and son out of the hospital car park.

Baby August took his first ride in the award-winning Cybex Cloud Z i-Size car seat, for babies up to 24 months. The car seat features integrated side-impact protection to keep baby safe as well as a 180° rotating mechanism so the seat can be swiviled, making it easier for parents and caregivers to get infants in and out of the car.

Prince William and Duchess Kate chose a different car seat brand – Britax – when their firstborn, Prince George, arrived in 2013

While that car seat is no longer available, new parents, royal and non-royal alike, can still shop the royal-approved baby brand's gear.

When younger son Prince Louis was born in 2018, he had a special addition to his car seat – a car seat cover by Spanish brand Pasito a Pasito. The Cambridge family have close links with Spain – the children have a Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and Kate often dresses her children in Spanish brands, like Pepa & Co, Amaia Kids and Irulea.

 

While a car seat is definitely a key new parent buy, Princess Eugenie had revealed another important detail – one of her little Prince's earliest belongings – when she announced her pregnancy. In the pregnancy announcement shared on Instagram, the then mum-to-be revealed her big news with a photo of an adorable pair of teddy bear baby slippers from John Lewis that cost just £8.

The royal baby was born on 9th February 2021, at 8:55am at The Portland Hospital, weighing in at 8lbs 1oz. His proud dad Jack was present for the birth.
