In case you’ve been really busy, there’s a wedding on today.
That wedding will be seen by an estimated three billion people; and will bring a large windfall to the UK economy as well.
According to British-based strategic consulting company Brand Finance, the upcoming royal wedding could lead to a £300 million (roughly $405 million) increase in tourism.
The company also estimates that there would be hundreds of millions of pounds accrued through spending in restaurants, in fashion based on the clothes Markle wears to public events both before and after the wedding, as well as merchandise and overall public relations value for the country as a whole.
Not bad for a days work.
