Could Prince George of Cambridge be bad for the fashion business?

While this week has been a joyous and momentous occasion for royal watchers around the World, the arrival of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge may be somewhat of a letdown for the fashion industry.

The Duchess of Cambridge is known for wearing a mix of reasonably priced “High Street” brands like Zara, Topshop and Reiss, combined with couture fashions by design houses such as Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham and Issa. When she makes an appearance, her entire outfit frequently sells out instantly online. She’s become such an icon that the fashion industry has come to refer to the trend as ‘the Kate effect.’

In the fashion world, Kate Middleton’s baby was expected to follow her success. But it seems many were betting on a princess instead of a prince. Will the future King of England be less valuable to retailers?
