Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding is sure to make the British economy sparkle!

The Royal Wedding set for May 19th is reportedly going to boost the UK economy by $680 million. This will be a result of an increase in tourism for the big day. Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding had an increase of 350,000 visitors to the UK.

The Office of National Statistics foreshadows the following:

“’We think approximately 200 million pounds will come from tourism, travel, hotels,’ the company’s chief executive David Haigh told Reuters. About 150 million pounds would be spent on people having parties and celebrating with 50 million coming from people buying T-shirts, hats and other commemorative items, he said. The wedding would also be worth about 100 million pounds in free advertising for Britain around the world, he added.”
