    I see numbers like this for lots of thing but never really understood how they came to that conclusion.

    Are there really that many more people coming to UK just because of a new royal? My guess is that most of those people would be heading here anyway.

    I have never met anyone in my entire life that would fly to another country for tourism over the birth of a baby of a royal family. I have also never meet anyone that would visit the UK over the Royal Family still existing (There is a line being peddled that they increase tourism.)

    Not just visting Britain.

    Watching British TV, reading British news reports, paying British media for content/airtime/advertising.
    Then British merchandising and branding, etc.

    Doesn't seem like that much when you think about the fact that a fight tonight in the US will make close to that.
    2 men alone will make ~$300 million combined

    No one cares about royalty anymore, in these days anyone can get rich and have a royal life or at least have a "higher social status" because of their money/social media fame.

    And who cares about a king anymore? lol IM KING BITCH!!!

    If the UK really wanted to actually increase tourism instead of being scammed by the so called royal family. They would kick them off government money, legalize weed at least in London. Use the money that normally went to the scammers for both tourism ads all over the world as well as regulating marijuana shops so they can be safe.

    I bet they would get more tourists in 1 month coming to the UK because of weed than they would get in 15 years of people that are obsessed with the royal family.

    I´m going to visit England but not for the royal family. To be honest it looks very stupid considering there´s still lots of people living in poverty there, I have no respect for that family, they don´t know what hard work is

    I live in England and I don't even know why we have a Royal Family. I know of hardly anything that they have contributed to, and the country has a lot that they didn't help with at all.

    It wouldn't surprise if this is also done in the UK. In the states there is so much economic bullshit made up by local cities and companies in regards to tourism. For example the NFL promotes the Superbowl as bringing $500 million+ to a city's economy but the reality is that it is many times closer to $30 million.
