Proceeds from tourism and product sales related to the birth are expected to pump nearly $400 million dollars into the British economy, ABC's Bianna Golodryga reports.

“From a business point of view, the Royal family is one of our best exports,” Margo added.

Margo said that more than two thirds of the Athenaeum Hotel’s guests come from The United States, and he expects a large number of guest this summer are coming specifically because of the royal baby, hoping that they’ll be able get a glance.
