Princess Charlotte ranks ahead of mom Kate on list of 'people who matter'

By Ainhoa Barcelona

Princess Charlotte has topped a list of "the people who really matter" in the world at just eight months of age. The adorable tot, fourth in line to the throne, who has only been seen by the public a handful of times, outranked her royal relatives and more than 600 others on the annual Tatler list.

Mom the Duchess of Cambridge is ranked second, dad Prince William came third and Charlotte's brother, Prince George, is fourth.

What is perhaps most surprising is that little Charlotte scored higher than the Queen, who holds fifth place.

TAP TO VIEW GALLERY The Cambridges secured the top four spots in the "people who really matter" list.

Described as "everyone's favourite monarch" in the list, Her Majesty, who is the nation's longest-reigning monarch, turns 90 in April.

The other top 10 spots are filled by members of the aristocracy and author Jilly Cooper, who wrote Wicked! and Riders and is described as "giving more joy to boarding-school girls than anyone else in the country".

The Queen was ranked the fifth most valued person.

Princess Diana's niece Lady Kitty Spencer is ranked sixth after the Queen, followed by sisters Lady Violet Manners, Lady Alice Manners and Lady Eliza Manners. The three siblings are the Duke and Duchess of Rutland's eldest children, who count Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire as their ancestral home.

Other names to appear in the top 20 include Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, who is in the running for best actor again this year, Oscar nominee and Oxford-educated Felicity Jones, and Sir Richard Branson's daughter Holly.

Prince Harry also appeared on the list in spot number 17.

Prince Harry has also sneaked on to the list in seventeenth place, followed by London Mayor Boris Johnson in eighteenth.

Tatler, the high-society magazine, explained that it does not reveal what factors are taken into account when ranking people, but that readers can share their opinions and they will be considered.
