What's better than a regular good old-fashioned baby? A royal baby, of course!
Kate Middleton's recent pregnancy announcement has gotten the world all in a tizzy, and maternity retailers are already gearing up for record-breaking sales of all things baby related.
Because rest assured that whatever Kate wears during her pregnancy will sell out within a matter of hours, if not minutes!
Just look at her track record.
The Rebecca Taylor jacket she wore earlier this year sold out within half an hour.
Her fave LK Bennett nude pumps sold like hot cakes after she was photographed in them several times, and both Reiss and Alexander McQueen saw an immediate increase in sales thanks to her patronage.
Dubbed the "Kate Middleton effect," the Duchess's influence and selling power is a force of nature.
We imagine all current owners of a baby business have visions of dollar $igns dancing in their heads! Because just like his or her mummy, the royal fetus will surely have the same effect!
Time to open a stroller store!
