Since Kate Middleton joined the Royal family, the money raised by the Royal Collection has shot up.
The Royal Collection (RC) made an incredible £10million from entry tickets to view Kate Middleton's wedding dress which went on display for 73 days at Buckingham Palace in 2011.

For those looking to have reminder of the birth but can't afford the princely sums, there are other items available on the RC website - the cheapest being a commemorative tea towel for £9.
