Earlier this week (April 23rd) it was reported that the number of Brits looking to visit the nation as a result of Prince William and Kate Middleton's official tour of Australia was on the rise.
And now a new release from Trivago has stated that the tourism industry in the country could benefit to the tune of some $50 million (£27 million) to $60 million from the visit, which saw the royals and their son, Prince George, visit a range of popular destinations.
“It‘s really about the awareness that the royal couple bring from their visit and through helping to communicate an experience," said Blue Mountains Lithgow & Oberon Tourism chief executive Randall Walker in an interview with news.com.au.
Trivago said that the impact of the royals coming to Australia has been almost immediate, with demand for trips to the country already having risen 51 per cent.
