Prince George graduates into eBay.co.uk’s royal ranking on third birthday
On the day the nation celebrates the third birthday of Prince George, eBay.co.uk has found that he’s sneaked his way into the royal ranking, selling nearly 19 items every day with listings including ‘Prince George style’ outfits and commemorative coins.
However, despite the 15% increase in sales since eBay’s last ranking in April, the young heir has a long way to go to catch up with his ‘Gan-Gan’ a.k.a. The Queen. Her Majesty tops the ranking selling more than 28,000 products in the last three months; that’s 13 items every hour with more than 100,000 listings currently on site, ranging from a £20,000 piece of art to DVDs.
Maintaining his second place position is Prince Harry, selling more than 25 items every day. Close friend and sister-in-law Kate Middleton follows him in third– up one place from the April ranking. The mother-of-two has sold more than 2,800 items in the last three months – with current listings including photographs and face masks.
Hanging back in fourth place is Duke of Cambridge; Prince William, selling just over 2,000 items in the last three months – nearly 10 every hour and Princess Charlotte fails to make the royal grade this time – coming in at seventh place.
