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.

Experts are predicting that $90 million alone will be spent on some three million bottles of champagne purchased to toast the baby's birth.
