Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most influential couples in the world. Their wedding was watched by millions of people across the globe, everything Meghan wears sells out immediately (the Meghan Markle effect is real, people) and people are going under the knife and asking cosmetic surgeons to emulate her features.
However, it turns out that there’s one seven-year-old that’s deemed way more ‘socially powerful’ than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. According to Tatler‘s annual Social Power Index, Harper Beckham is up there with the heavyweights, while Harry and Meghan don’t make the top ten.
David and Victoria’s youngest child came fourth, beat only by Prince William and Kate Middleton – who placed first – Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre, and Joseph and Sabine Getty.
The list is compiled of celebrities and public figures based on how influential they are for social occasions. Harper was described as a ‘front-row fixture’ who ‘jets between Los Angeles, London and the Cotswolds.’ It also notes that her sixth birthday party was held at Buckingham Palace, which isn’t something that everyone can boast about.
The full list is as follows:
- Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
- Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre
- Joseph and Sabine Getty
- Harper Beckham
- The Hon Will and Lohralee Astor
- Jamie Redknapp
- Laura Kuenssberg – BBC Political Editor
- Lord and Lady Bamford
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Perrie Edwards
- The Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley
While they didn’t make the top ten, Harry and Meghan were part of the ‘Most Invited’ list, alongside the likes of Kate Moss, Stella McCartney and Sir Elton John.
Counts for something, right?
