Talk about pressure!
Kate Middleton and Prince William's baby hasn't even been born yet, and the country is already calculating the potential profits of the royal that's in the Duchess' womb. LOLz!
Apparently, experts are claiming that a little princess could help boost the economy by over a BILLION dollars. That's quite an investment you've got cookin' in there Kate!

According to Professor Joshua Bamfield, the director of U.K.'s Center for Retail Research, a royal Princess could have a significant impact on the fashion industry. He stated to The 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."
And of course, now that Kate is a fashionista in her own right — we can only imagine the ensembles the little Princess of Cambridge will rock!
The unborn baby's brother gave the country's economy a boost worth $369 million with his birth and many fashionable public appearances!
Remember how precious Prince George looked in his official royal portraits?
Regardless of the gender, we just hope the royal-to-be will be healthy and happy! Let's remember to take it easy on the pressure — it's only a baby.
