The royal baby will soon be here, and the world is celebrating – to the tune of almost 400 million dollars. That’s how much analysts estimate will be spent in honor of the young heir to the throne’s arrival.

It may be visitors doing a big chunk of that spending - tourism was up 13 percent in the month of April.

Concerning what it is people are and will be buying, the bulk of it is estimated to be commemorative merchandise – china, dvds, books, and toys.

A big chunk of money will be spent on liquor, and with all of the parties predicted to be going on, lots of food will be purchased, too.

Many non-birth specific items are likely going to be purchased after the baby comes, as parents are predicted to copy Kate who is already a major influence in the retail world.

While what she’s wearing is often sought after, the light pink coat she wore to her pre-birth public appearance has millions wondering more than where they can get one. Many think her choice was a clue as to the gender of the baby.
