In the six years since she tied the knot with Prince William, Kate has been the picture-perfect publicity machine for the royal family, barely putting a Jimmy Choo wrong as she graces red carpets and attends charity events.

So how does that break down in the family?

According to OK! Magazine, despite being the newest member of the family, Princess Charlotte is more valuable than her brother George.

The adorable tot – who is set to turn two in just a few weeks - is worth $5 billion, compared to her brother’s $3.9 billion.

In fact, when Charlotte was born, the economy received a $170 million boost.

“The unofficial endorsement of Charlotte, George and their mother Kate in particular has a profound financial effect running into millions annually,” Brand Finance’s chief executive David Haigh told The Express.

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old is worth nearly $8 billion, with her infamous ‘Kate effect’ evolving as its been passed onto her young children.

“The ‘Cambridge Effect’ means that any article of clothing any of them wears for a public function or a special photo sells immediately,” explains Forbes.com.
