It's official! "Kate and William Mania" has taken hold everywhere. While we can understand the fascination throughout the United Kingdom with the upcoming royal wedding, it seems, stateside, we are also gaga over the royals.
And that is a very good thing for the recession-weary because the royal wedding means serious cash in the form of jobs created to make the "big day" a memorable one. Estimates vary about the total tally for England, but some are predicting up to £1 billion (about $1.5 billion U.S.) in extra tourist revenues and memorabilia sales.
