Prince William, Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, Prince George


A second royal baby is due to arrive any day now, and luckily he or she will have an assortment of luxe baby goods already at home!

While hand-me-downs may get the rap of being, well, not the finest, we're sure that these royal hand-me-downs are the best of the best. Why? Because they were just that when they were first given to Prince George. The soon-to-be big sibling arrived on July 22, 2013 to worldwide well wishes and a range of regal gifts.

As a refresher, Kate Middleton didn't have a baby shower (which is generally not the custom in England), but she and Prince William were still quite prepared for Prince George's arrival.

First in the potential hand-me-down lineup: Prince George's tried-and-true car seat. It seems like only yesterday he was a wee newborn being whisked away to Kensington Palace in the sturdy (and chic) Britax Baby-Safe model. Although this carrier is available in different hues, Kate and William opted for a simple black style (the perfect, unisex choice for potential reuse).

Prince George of Cambridge, Swaddle Blanket


Every newborn needs a cozy swaddle: Prince George's, though, caused an international sensation when he was pictured in a 100 percent cotton version by Aden + Anais. The green bird print will be well fit for the newest member of the royal family, whether girl or a boy.

Need more proof that this one's a keeper? The super-soft swaddle is a baby must-have for many a Hollywood mom, including Anna Paquin, Halle Berry and Kristen Bell.

And the new royal baby needs to ride in style, of course: Why not again use the luxe Bugaboo special-edition Cameleon3 stroller (in a beautiful jewel-tone blue design featuring monochrome stripes) that was secured for Prince George's arrival.

We all know Kate loves recycling her chic event looks, which is why we think it would be a duchess-approved move to let the royal younger brother or sister sport the ornate all-white silk-satin christening gown that George wore to his own ceremony on October 23, 2013. Sixty other royal babies have donned the Spitalfields design (the original 1841 relic was too fragile, however, for George to wear on his christening day—he instead wore a replica made by the Queen's couturier, Angela Kelly).

And finally, we can't get enough of George's sweet kangaroo backpack, which is why we think it's sure to be a cute carry-all for his little sister or brother.
