The Kate Middleton phenomenon is renowned in fashion circles: if the Duchess of Cambridge wears something, chances are it will have sold out worldwide before she’s had time to get changed. In fact, there are women out there who devote themselves to dressing identically to her.
But a new eBay report reveals that Kate Middleton’s influence has quickly been eclipsed… by none other than her two-year-old daughter. Princess Charlotte, according to the report shared with Vanity Fair, has the “biggest spend power” of any member of the royal family.
She wears a yellow cardigan? Seaches on eBay “increased tenfold.” She dons a smock dress to casually tour Germany? Cue a six-fold boost in searches for the very same dress.
Not bad for someone who probably can’t even dress herself yet.
