Prince George Beats Cara Delevingne To ‘Most Influential In London’ Title

Yes, you read that correctly. Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge has in fact been named the city's 'Most Influential' in The Evening Standard's yearly Power List...

Prince George of Cambridge might only be two months old, but that doesn’t mean he’s not as powerful and influential as the like of Cara Delevingne and Andy Murray.

The tiny royal’s celebrity status as an A-lister has been well and truly cemented thanks to The Evening Stanard‘s annual Power 1000 list. The newspaper has put the future king at the very top of it’s Power List, meaning Prince George is now considered to be the ‘Most Influential Person In London’. Sorry, Cara.

Prince George also beat his parents tot he top spot, with Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge coming 11th and 7th, respectively. One Direction’s Harry Styles also made the list, but at 17th place, which will no doubt anger 1D fans on Twitter. Mayor Boris Johnson came second.

The Evening Standard says that the tiny Prince was chosen to sit at the very top of the list as he’s become the capital’s global ambassador. Despite the fact that we’ve only seen him out in public once – when he made his debut outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, back in July.

Editor Sarah Sands said: ‘London is a magnet for the rest of world and our newest power resident, Prince George, is a timely symbol. He is our greatest tourist attraction, along with his great grandmother, which is why he has been chosen this year as the first among Londoners.’

So where did Prince George‘s great grandmother, the reigning Queen, rank? 16th place. Ouch.

The full list will be unveiled at a star-studded party at Battersea Power Station tonight, with a print edition following in tomorrow’s paper.
