Princess Charlotte is only four months old, and she's already upstaging her brother. CNNMoney reports that the U.K.'s newest royal baby will help boost the economy by a gigantic $5 billion.
According to business valuation agency Brand Finance, the royal family in total is worth $87 billion to the U.K. economy. Princess Charlotte's mom, the Duchess of Cambridge, is worth $7.2 billion, but hey, she's had a little more time to become a valuable asset to the country. But her brother, Prince George, is worth only $3.6 billion, even though he started an arguably bigger frenzy with his birth, and even though he'll be king someday.
Charlotte has appeared in public only twice, and she's already been more of an asset than her sibling. The lacy shawl she wore during her first appearance and the stroller she rode in for her christening have both been selling like hotcakes.
Her parents and uncle Prince Harry have all swooned over the newest addition to the family, who has been called 'a little joy of heaven' and is much calmer than her brother was at that age. Another positive: All she has to do is look adorable to bring in some serious cash.
