Kate Middleton and Prince William ‘s second child isn’t even here yet, and there are already such great expectations upon the infant’s inevitably adorable head.
Experts are calculating just how much money a royal baby No. 2 will be if its a girl.
“I think there will be an immediate boost of around 80 million pounds [or $119.4 million] when the baby is born, with around [$30 million-$37 million] spent on souvenirs and the rest on food and drink such as cake and sparkling wine,” Professor Joshua Bamfield, director of the U.K.’s Center for Retail Research, told London’s Telegraph .
“There isn’t as much excitement when it’s the second baby, but a girl would have the potential to boost the fashion industry.
“As well as the boost to baby clothing sales that we have seen from Prince George , a Princess would be able to set trends throughout her life, which will be great for the people who designed her clothes or those who can make quick knock-off copies.”
According to the Telegraph report, George’s birth gave the British economy a $369 million boost and the predictions are that a little princess could ultimately put an extra $200 million-plus in local coffers upon arrival.
