When His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge was born there was a lot of discussion in the media on how much his birth cost.  Many people around the world were shocked.  I can honestly say that it was a better deal then what the average birth costs here in the US.  You may be shocked.  Do you really know  how much it costs to have a baby?  This Huffington Post Graphic basically sums it up.
