The impending arrival of The Duchess of Cambridge's first child is one of the most anticipated royal births in decades. Analysts estimate the birth of Kate Middleton and Prince William's child, the third in line to the throne, could give a £250m boost to the British economy as members of the public flock to buy royal baby memorabilia.

Speaking to journalists, stylists and nursery designers, in an exclusive video special IBTimes UK looks at the true impact of 'the Kate effect', and lifts the lid on a very significant royal birth.
