    Princess Charlotte has fast become one of the most popular royal family members, entertaining the masses with her signature sass and adorable royal wave. We’re still not over the video of her sticking her tongue out at photographers earlier this month.

    Simply put – she’s an icon.

    And on closer inspection it looks like she actually is in more ways that one, with the four-year-old not only adored by the public, but also admired as a style icon, reportedly having a huge impact on the British economy.

    In fact, according to a study by Reader’s Digest last year, Princess Charlotte’s impact on the economy is worth over £1 billon more than her older brother, Prince George’s.

    According to the study, Prince George’s worth was estimated at £2.7 billion while his younger sister’s was estimated at a whopping £3.8 billion.

    Why? Well there’s no need for Prince George to be too sad, as it looks like it’s down to his younger sister’s style.

    That’s right, there’s a Kate Middleton effect, a Meghan Markle effect, and now a Princess Charlotte effect, with the little princess being the latest (and smallest) royal to become a fashion icon.

    In fact, according to a poll by The Telegraph, 1 in every 5 parents considers the princess a style icon for their own children.

    Even we’re looking to the princess for style advice – and according to Prince William’s comments about his daughter’s love of pink and accessories, she certainly seems to be up for the job.

    You go, girl.
