Kate Middleton and Prince William’s baby girl Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana is here – and business is booming in Britain thanks to the new royal baby. When Prince George was born back in 2013 his birth reportedly brought in over $380 Million in revenue for local businesses that were selling trinkets and other items to commemorate the new Prince’s arrival. And, there is a good chance that Princess Charlotte’s birth could far surpass her big brother’s in terms of monetary value.
The May 25 edition of OK! Magazine reveals, “After Prince William and Duchess Kate announced their latest addition’s name – Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, their loyal subjects pretty much flipped their biscuits, releasing a flood of baby trinkets and treasures to the market.” Of course the fact that the new Princess’s name includes Elizabeth after the late Queen, Diana after the people’s favorite former Princess, and Charlotte – a derivative of Charles, storeowners haven’t had any problems moving their new merchandise.
OK! Magazine goes on to reveal that baby trinkets commemorating the new Princess’s birth aren’t the only thing boosting Britain’s economy since Charlotte’s arrival. OK! explains, “Bookmakers Paddy Power even began taking bets on what her Royal Highness will be when she grows up.” And, by the way there are 100-1 odds that Princess Charlotte will wind up being an Oscar winning actress. Ironically, Princess Charlotte’s name alone seems to be giving her an edge over the amount of revenue that her brother Prince George brought in – and she is not even an heir, she’s technically just the spare.
How much of a total boost do you think Princess Charlotte will give the British economy – will she far exceed Prince George’s $380 Million? Do you think that if Kate Middleton and Prince William had not included Diana in her name the baby trinkets would still be flying off the shelves? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
